Head Coach's Message 

   I have been impressed by all the swimmers bravely completing their Brute Squads! It's amazing to see so many people step up to this big challenge. Way to go!

   Now that many of you have completed your Brute Squads, it’s important you make official by registering. Here is how it works:

  1. If swimming Brute and Brute Lite, swim BOTH before entering your times (save $6 on your entry)
  2. After your swim (or swims), take your split sheet home with you (Competitive Brutes: you will need this in step 4)
  3. Follow this link: 2022 Brute Squad Registration to begin your registration
  4. Enter all the information as you are prompted. You will need your USMS Registration number, and those split times (note: you do not need split times if you completed the Non-Competitive Brute)
  5. At the end of the registration you can purchase a Brute Squad shirt to show off your accomplishment

   Remember if you are going to do both the Brute and Brute Lite, wait to register until you have completed both events (this will save you $6).

   That’s all you have to do to be an official Brute! If you have any questions, please contact me.

 Coach Matt
