Swim Across America

Swim Across America is dedicated to raising money and awareness for cancer research, prevention and treatment through swimming- related events.
You can help support this great cause by donating to a team made up of Catfish swimmers, Team Life.

Sign up for Summer Swimming with the Catfish!
So are you an Early Bird or a Moonlighter?  That's right, it's time to get signed up for summer swimming with the Catfish at Wilmette's Centennial Pool -- 50 meters and just a great outdoor experience, morning or evening.
New to the team?  We have graduated lanes, starting with novice lap swimmers and ending with former college competitors.  Our age range is roughly 19 to 80.  Our summer practices typically have two coaches covering the lanes, with each coach running the practice and providing advice on technique.  Don't be shy, try a couple of practices and talk to the coaches and swimmers before joining.  You're gonna love it!
Summer Swimming is June 16 through August 23:
  • Weekday Mornings  Mon/Wed/Fri:  5:15 - 6:30 am
  • Weekday Evenings  Tues/Thurs:  9:00 - 10:15 pm
  • Weekend Mornings  Sat:  7:15 - 8:45 am
 You can get signed up right now by visiting our Member Signup page.  And don't forget your 2014 USMS registration -- it's required.

The December and January Invites
