Lonoke SharkRockets: Welcome

Tuesday, May 24
LONOKE SHARKROCKETS

The Lonoke Sharkrocket Swim Team is a summer league swim team.  Our home pool is the Lonoke Community Center.  We are a member of the Central Arkansas Swim League.  Other teams in our league are Saline County Barracudas, Cabot Piranhas, Conway Crocodiles, Lakewood Waves, Maumelle Marlins, Otter Creek Otters, and Sherwood Sharks.  Meets begin in early June.  We have five regular season meets on Saturday mornings.   There is not a meet over the 4th of July weekend.  Our season ends with the Meet of Champs at UALR.    

 Swimmers compete in appropriate age divisions for bronze, silver, gold and platinum levels. All new swimmers begin at the bronze level.  As their times improve, they move into the silver, gold and platnium levels.  All platinum, gold and silver swimmers qualify for the Meet of Champs.  At least eight bronze swimmers will also qualify in each event.   

There are many benefits to swimming.  Swimming is not only fun, it is great exercise.  Swimmers build strength and endurance.  Many of the kids really notice this in other sports they compete in.   We also stress the importance of good sportsmanship.  Good sportsmanship is practiced during practice and at meets.  The Lonoke Sharkrockets have won the Central Arkansas Swim League Sportsmanship Award!     

We strive to make swimming a fun experience for every member of the team.  This goes for parents as well as kids.  Our meets are run by parents, so there are many ways for everyone to be involved.  There is information about all parent jobs located in the handout section of the web site. 

 For more information, please contact Tara Bennett at lonokesharkrockets@gmail.com.

 

Little Learners 4:30-5:15

 

Beginning May 31st, morning practice will be 7-9 Monday - Thursday.

Afternoon practice will be Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:15-6:15.

If any of our older swimmers are interested in helping with the Little Learners for service hours, please let Coach Makenzie know.

NO PRACTICE MONDAY MAY  30th FOR MEMORIAL DAY!

Our first meet is June 11th!

Swimsuit sizing will begin this week.  We are using the same suit as last year.  Please remember, suits need to be tried on before swimmers get in the pool, and the tags can not be torn off.  I would like to have sizing done by May 16th.

All swimmers will receive a team T-shirt.  Extra shirts can be ordered.  Short sleeve T's are $12, long sleeve $20 and hoodies are $25.  Let me know this week if you wouldlike to order any.

Please contact potential sponsors.  Sponsorship money helps pay for swimmers shirts and caps.  Hopefully we can also offset the cost of suits through sponsorship money.  Full price for girls suits are $62 and boys are $45. In order for sponsors to be listed on our shirts, I need their information by May 23rd.

Registration forms, sponsor letter and meet schedule can all be found in the Handout Section.
