KEEP THE DATE: SATURDAY, MAY 4TH. THIS IS THE DATE FOR THIS YEAR’S JAMBOREE. Warm-up is 10:30 with the meet starting at 11:00. This is a must meet for all Cape Aquatics swimmers. Swimmers not permitted to compete due to their “too fast” times are expected to help out. We will need timers, runners, snack bar help and every Cape swimmer showing what they can do in the water. It’s us against all the other Swim Florida pools. Lots of fun, lots of “Rah, Rah, Rah!”.

Cape swimmers dropped time in most of their swims at the 2019 Rowdy Gaines Cup Meet this weekend in Winter Haven. The team put together enough great long course swims to take home the third place trophy. Earning top age group point awards were Taylor Tedhams for 8 and under girls, Jacob Lehman in the 10 & under boys and Hayden Tedhams in the 11 & 12 boys. A great meet for our swimmers. Lots of smiles all around. Complete results will be posted ASAP. Thanks to all the families participating this weekend.
