Great Work at AGUA Season Starter!

Congratulations to our swimmers on kicking off the 2022-2023 AGUA swim season, with many of you racing to new personal best times and heat wins! The AGUA coaches were proud to see the team working together and bringing positive energy to the pool deck.

We would also like to thank our family volunteers who helped us run a smooth and successful meet for all of the athletes competing.
