Navy SEAL Fitness Challenge
Hi all,
The Navy SEALS and USA Swimming have teamed up to create a unique opportunity for swimmers to test their performance in individual tests of strength and endurance. This challenge consists of swimming, push-ups, sit-ups, pull-ups, and running. This challenge closely mirrors the initial physical screening test given to anyone who desires to become a U.S. Navy SEAL and provides a fun, competitive dryland program for USA Swimming clubs.
The Navy SEAL Fitness Challenge is being conducted in the Spring and the Fall  by several USA Swimming clubs/LSC's around the country and scores from the challenge will be calculated and posted on the USA Swimming website so competitors can compare themselves with other swimmers and participants nationwide. All Navy SEAL Fitness Challenge competitors will receive a commemorative t-shirt and swim cap for their participation in the competition.
Please see the attached flyer which can be printed or posted on your club's website. USA Swimming asked a few LSC's to participate in this initial round and Minnesota Swimming was one of them. Minnetonka Swim Club is the only club hosting the event this Spring. Registration for this event can be done through the Minnetonka Swim Club website with the registration deadline May 14, 2011. Athlete may participate with their club or as an individual, but must be at least 13 years of age. The targeted age range is 13-25 year of age. This event will be limited to 200 participants on a first come, first served basis. Participants will be contacted after the 14th to inform them of what time they need to arrive and what time their wave starts. There are no participation fees associated with this event.
National Team Member, David Plummer, will be on site at the Minnetonka SEALS Challenge. He will be speaking to each wave and available to meet with athletes, sign autographs, etc.
