The July 9th, 2014 event will feature 6-10 swimmers from the Coleman Young Recreation Center swim program representing the City of Detroit neighborhoods. Current City of Detroit lifeguards are strongly urged to participate in this event. Upon presentation of your credentials (Red Cross Lifeguard Card), all entry fees will be waived.
Registration starts at 7:15am.
The entry fee is $25 to swim and $15 for dinner at the Detroit Yacht Club.
Female team members stated that they could swim across the width of the Detroit River to Canada and back. All of these swimmers are from Detroit and, this is a moment to be proud of them. Team Members have competed against schools like Cass Tech and come in first place without a lot of effort. These students will be able to pursue careers that require water skills like underwater rescue and research.
Your support is greatly appreciated and thank the Detroit Recreation Department for their good work.
