Lonoke SharkRockets: Welcome

Tuesday, March 11
LONOKE COMMUNITY CENTER 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 Bryant 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.  Our season ends with the Meet of Champs at UALR.    . 

Swimmers compete in age divisions.  We also have platinum, gold, silver and bronze competition 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 870-552-3922.

PARENT MEETING FOR THE 2014 SEASON WILL BE MARCH 18, 2014 AT 6:00 AT THE COMMUNITY CENTER

The Rev-Up Program will begin March 31st and run through May 8th.  Coach Herb Brill will be having practice Monday, Tuesday and Thursdays for 4:30-5:30 to get swimmers ready for our summer season.   All swimmers in the Rev-Up Program must be able to swim freestyle one length of the pool.

Swimming

By Tristan Bennett

On the block

Into the water

Between the lane ropes

Beside my competition

Through the pool

On with the pull

Toward the front

Onto the wall

With my head and heart racing

Down is my time

The heat is mine
