Arena, title sponsor of the Pro Swim Series, wanted to do more than simply support the United States’ most prestigious swimming series. Arena’s mission is to grow the sport and engage all swimmers at all levels. So, they created the Arena Club Cup for local teams to participate at this elite swim meet and possibly win financial support for their club team in the process.
Hosted by 3-time Olympic gold medalist Rowdy Gaines, with Olympic Champion Breeja Larson and World Champion Tom Shields, the Arena Club Cup Mesa was fun for everyone.
About Arena USA
