Summer is fast approaching here in the Amarillo area. That means a lot of pool time in the future for a lot of people. Swimming is a lot of fun. It can also be some great exercise.

If you are anything like me you might find a bit of a competitive streak in you. Don't worry you can combine summer, pool time, and a competitive good time, just by joining a swim team.

When I first moved to the Canyon area. Yes, it was a long time ago. I looked into joining a swim team. I had enjoyed swimming for years for a team in the Chicago area. I loved competing like that. When I moved here there were no options.

Over the years that has changed. In fact I tried to get my daughter to join a swim team here in Amarillo when she was growing up. She was more of a volleyball player and never took to wanting to swim on a competitive level. The options were still there though.

If you have kids that might want to take their swimming to the next level now is the time to check it out. Canyon Swim Team is looking for swimmers. You can check out the team, the coaches, and the pool at the Open House.

Swimming, of course, is great exercise and makes sure that your kiddos don't slack over the summer. Plus they will have a lot of fun and make new friends. Check it out and see if this could be that summer activity your family is looking for. Swimming is a perfect activity. Check it out.
