Swimquaintences: What’s a Swimquaintence? (Video Feature)

What’s a Swimquaintence?

Whether you’re an athlete, coach, or parent, you’re at the pool for hours a week. Practice, meets, volunteering… you put in some serious time. And during that time, you meet other people who are putting in their time. Swimquaintences. We all have them.

The best part about swimquaintences is the stories that come from those people you meet. When you become a pool regular, you start seeing the same people over and over. But you might not actually meet them until years later… or in the most conventional way.

So get your stories ready, I’ll make sure to keep you posted on where I’ll be and when
