The Check-Off Challenge is a postal event designed to motivate swimmers to complete 18 pool events and an open water swim during the 2014 calendar year. It challenges all levels of swimmers. Novice swimmers can swim new events. Experienced swimmers can try for their personal best times in as many events as practical.
Where and when do I accomplish the Check-Off Challenge?
The events may be swum in practice or in meets, in yards or in meters, any time during 2014. The challenge is to complete all events or try new events. COACHES: Sign up your entire team and use the event as a team challenge. Spread out the events over a period of time during practice sessions, progressively building up to the tougher events.
