Gym Membership Opportunity - The powerhouse gym in South Lyon is offering swim and dive girls a gym membership for 30 days for $30 and no registration fee! It would just be for this month, and you just have to say that you're with the South Lyon Swim and Dive team to get this deal. All of the classes are included, and there's a great variety! They even offered us to create a class just for the team if we get 10 people or more to join. Please join if you can so we can go into the season stronger than last year! If you have any questions please email Kayty Ihara at Hope you all take advantage of this great opportunity to get in shape!

"Being your best is not so much about overcoming the barriers other people place in front of you as it is about overcoming the barriers we place in front of ourselves. It has nothing to do with how many times you win or lose. It has no relation to where you finish in a race or whether you break world records. But it does have everything to do with having the vision to dream, the courage to recover from adversity and the determination never to be shifted from your goals." Kieren Perkins
