Lots of great swimmers over the age of 25. Our team with seven swimmers won a Regional meet competing against teams with many more swimmers.
I paid my way through college by working summer jobs as a pool manager and swimteam coach. Many many great memories there.
I worked as a fast pitch Softball umpire through college. It was high school girls so the scenery was a benefit!
