Head Coach's Message
MARK YOUR CALENDAR - the14th Annual Ross Yancher Brute Squad is coming up!! The event runs through the entire month of November. This is a big fundraiser for the club while also being a great way to test your endurance and bond with your teammates! Check out the specifics below…
This year we will continue to offer the Full Brute Squad, Brute Squad Lite, and Non-Competitive Brute Squad.
For the Full Brute Squad: legally swim a 200 fly, 400 IM and a 1650 free, in that order. You cannot use equipment or draft (two swimmers per lane max). You need to have someone to count and time for you (100 splits are required).You can take breaks whenever you want and for as long as you want. The time you enter will be your total time from the start of your 200 fly to the end of your 1650 free.
For the Brute Squad Lite: Swim a legal 100 fly, 200 IM and a 500 free. Other than that, the rules are the same as for the Full Brute Squad.
If you choose to swim the Non-Competetive Brute Squad (either Full or Lite), the rules are a little more relaxed. You are permitted to use equipment and swim “single arm” butterfly, but other rules (counter, no more than 2 swimmers per lane) remain the same.
Finally (and most importantly) - make sure you get credit for what you did! After you finish your Brute Squad event, enter here: 14th Annual Ross Yancher Brute Squad. When you go through the entry process, you will submit all your splits and times (those swimming the non-competitive Brute do not have to enter splits). At the end of the entry you can purchase some cool Brute swag to show off your accomplishment!
Want to help out but maybe this event isn’t for you?? No problem! You can support one (or more) of your teammates by signing up to be a timer/counter. If this sounds like something you’d be interested in, contact Lynda Yancher.
We will have more information on the Brute Squad in the coming weeks and we will continue to gear up for this event at our daily workouts. If you have any questions, let me know. You can also find more information here: 14th Annual Ross Yancher Brute Squad Event Information
