Lonoke SharkRockets: Welcome

Friday, June 23
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. 

We are currently having an open practice on Mondays and Thursdays from 5:30-6:30.  Come join us!

  Morning Practice will be Mondays-Thursdays from 7:00-8:30 beginning May 30th. 

Otter Creek results are in the handout section.

Next Meet July 8th at Maumelle with Otter Creek

 These swimmers are qualified for the Meet of Champs, July 22nd at UALR!  The 10 and under swimmers will be swimming in the morning session with warm ups beginning at 7:00, and the 11 and older swimmers will swim in the afternoon with warm ups starting at noon. The top 8 bronze swimmers for each event will qualify as well. There may be more bronze swimmers qualify depending on empty lanes. If you already know that you will not be able to swim on July 22nd, please let me know (whether or not you are qualified) The sooner I can get the scratches in, the sooner we will know who will qualify in the bronze division. When swimmers scratch, the kids below them move up.
