Lonoke SharkRockets: Welcome

Saturday, May 20
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.

2017 Registration is underway! A link to the forms are at the bottom of the page. 

 

We need a new parent rep for next year! I would love to start working with someone now.

 

The sponsorship letter is also in the handout section.  Sponsorship money is  used to purchase swimmer's shirts and caps.  We also hope to raise money to help purchase new lane lines for the pool.  All sponsors names will be on our shirt and the banner in the pool room!Please get you sponsorships in, so I can get the artwork for the shirt finished!

 

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. 

 

The dates have been set for the Stroke and Turn Clinics for this season:

Cabot's stroke and turn training is May 30 from 6:00pm to 7:30pm.

Maumelle's stroke and turn training is May 31 from 6:00pm to 7:30pm.

Bryant's training is June 1 from 6:00pm to 7:30pm.

I hope we have some parent's that will consider becoming a judge. If we do not have any judges, our team will not be represented when it comes to judging at meets. Our meets are all run by parents and we are required to have as many workers at meets as we can provide.
