Our Hawks Team of 125 has to contend with 10 hours in a 6-lane pool that we rent out from a college.
With that constraint, we turn and obstacle into a challenge.
For instance---A crowded Monday night, and I propose a "Swim Up the Ladder" set for our Golds/Senior group.
Here's the workout for anyone who has crowded lanes, a ton of potential and not as much time as they'd prefer!
