This past weekend, we had a team BBQ – the first event to welcome the new season. It was a great time for the swimmers and families to catch up after the summer, and welcome new members to the Optima family. Heartfelt gratitude to the Diamantis for hosting an awesome event. Also a big Thank You to Walden Local Meat for sponsoring our delicious burgers which were gone in no time. Thanks for everyone who pitched in. We are looking forward to another year of swimming, competing and having fun together.
If you ask any synchro families what they have a lot in their house, most likely the answer is … swim suit. When the team heard the Boys and Girls Club of Lawrence’s need for gently used swim suits, we jumped at the opportunity to give back to the community where the team practices. Within two weeks, the team donated 28 suits. Yesterday, our lovely team ambassadors proudly presented the donations to the club. Big thanks to all families who participated. Go Optima!
Optima Synchro will host its annual show on Saturday, April 27, 2019 at the Greater Lawrence Technical High School. Our swimmers have been working hard throughout this season to learn their new routines and fine-tune them ever more so to do their best for competitions and for the annual show. Come watch the show and cheer them on. You can buy tickets here.
Optima Synchro helped spread the holiday cheer by marching in the annual Andover Firefighters Santa Parade on November 27, 2016. Show your holiday spirit and support this Saturday’s Holiday Synchrothon.
