SHARK ATTACK

MWCC Sharks LogoHello Memorial West Community Club Sharks Families,

We are eager to start preparations for our 2017 Sharks Swim Team Season! We are communicating now to build excitement for the 2017 season and share key dates for planning purposes. Swim team has been a wonderful event in our neighborhood for years and we are excited to be part of another. It is one of the few opportunities when we come together as families to serve and build community with neighbors and friends. We appreciate and rely on your support to make this wonderful event possible. More information will come soon regarding swim team volunteer job vacancies and ways you can contribute.

We are excited to have Coach Todd Hunter return this year! Coach Hunter swam in college and has spent years around the pool training and coaching. He has coached everything from neighborhood swim clubs (like ours), competitive swim teams (like year round clubs), and high school teams. He has three children and currently teaches middle school in Katy. He has a passion for helping swimmers grow in skill and love of the sport. We are over the moon to have him back again!!!

Also, we are thrilled to have one of our very own join us as assistant coach! Elena will be guiding us with her expertise this summer and we know this is an added bonus!
