Attention lap swimmers!  Have you signed up for “The Big Swim” at FitRec?  The friendly competition runs from Nov. 12 – Dec 9.

If you sign up, you will keep track of your laps every time you stop in and the top 20 with the highest score at the end of the four-week stretch will win a small prize.

The idea is to provide a fun challenge to compete against your fellow FitRec lap swimmers and see how hard you can work over the four weeks.

Details for “The Big Swim”

– You must sign up by Nov. 11.  The sign-up sheet is on the clipboard with the lifeguard.

– The results will be updated and posted every Monday.

– Each time you stop into FitRec to swim, you will tell the lifeguard how many laps you completed at the end of your swim and the result will be recorded.

– Any technique can be used and there is no time limits on how long you swim for.

– The lap counting is on an honor system. It is not the duty of the lifeguard to count the participants laps, however if the guard feels the participant is giving false info they reserve the right to inform the supervisor.

– At the end of the four-week stretch, the results will be totaled and the participants will be contacted.
