Eugene’s favorite summer watering hole, Amazon Pool, is closed today due to a broken water pipe. Repairs are expected to take at least two days. In the meantime, swimmers are encouraged to go to Sheldon Pool, 2443 Willakenzie Dr..
The Breakout Swim Clinic, scheduled to be held at Amazon Pool on Sunday will be held at Sheldon Pool instead.
About the Breakout Swim Clinic: More than 100 swimmers, ages 13-18, will have the experience of a lifetime on Sunday, Sept. 21, when they meet and are coached by Olympic medalists Ian Crocker, Caitlin Leverenz, Dana Vollmer, and Andy Grant.
The local swimmers, all members of Team Eugene Aquatics swim club, will attend a Mutual of Omaha Breakout! Swim Clinic on Sunday. The swimmers will hear inspiring messages from the Olympians and then get in the water with them for demonstration and instruction on swim strokes and techniques. Some lucky participants will get a chance to race against the Olympians.
