Sports are a great way to have fun and become involved at the Academy. We have sports period from 4 to 6 p.m. during the week and it is a great time to relax and forget about academics. I swim here at the Academy and we just finished our season this past weekend at NEWMACs. The season was awesome and I really enjoyed swimming for our team. The team and coaches are amazing so we always have a fun time doing team events. After a few Saturday practices, we went out to breakfast as a team and we just recently volunteered as a team in a nearby elementary school’s basket raffle. Along with the incredible experiences and camaraderie, my times improved significantly this season. The coaches make great practices and are very helpful when it comes to giving advice to fix your stroke. I would highly recommend swimming for the Academy if you have a background in the sport. Dropping time, cheering everyone on and spending the day together at NEWMACs was a great way to end my first season at the Academy. I am excited for next season and the new opportunity it will bring to improve my swimming.
If you have any questions about swimming here or anything else, you’re more than welcome to send me an email!
