2012 US Olympic Swim Trials - Healthy Family Fun

2012 US Olympic Swim Trials – Healthy Family Fun

USA Swimming logos

Last week I mentioned that the US Olympic Swim Trials are this week.  We have been watching them both on NBC and on nbcolympics.com. The kids are really loving it and they have actually improved in their swim lessons this week as a result.  It sure helps to see a perfect model of how a stroke looks. We were on the end our our seats watching Phelps and Lochte battle it out in the 200m freestyle. So exciting! If you haven’t watched the trials this week there is still time!

Also be sure to visit USA Swimming and  their great resource website, SwimToday.org. This site is a wonderful tool for parents who want to get their kiddos into swim lessons. On the site, you can find a place to swim in your area, self-assess your ability, and learn the benefits of swimming and fitness.  SwimToday.org can also help parents find swim facilities that offer scholarships. If you haven’t already, go check out the site.

Also, The Motherhood and USA Swimming are throwing a Twitter party on Monday, July 2, at 7:30 p.m. ET to cheer on Dara Torres in real time as she swims.  The party will last an hour and they will be giving away some prizes, talking about swimming, and cheering on Dara throughout.

Has your family been watching the trials? Does your family plan to watch the Olympics? Feel free to leave a comment. Share and let’s talk about it!
