Welcome to the SLUH Swim & Dive -- 2022 Swim Across America ("SAA") Open Water Swim. This Open Water Swim will take place in Alpine Lake @ Innsbrook, MO on Saturday morning, August 27, 2022.
The SAA Open Water Swim is **required** for all Varsity & JV swim team members.
Varsity Swim Distance = 2 miles
JV Swim Distance = 1 mile or 2 miles (your choice)
SAA registration fee is $50, AND each swimmer will be responsible for raising an additional +$50 from family or friends (SAA's minimum = $100 per participant under 18 years old). Please use the passcode SAA22STL when registering. You'll probably want to fund the full $100 and be done with it. Or you should feel free to raise/ contribute more. This charity swim event 'sells-out' each year, so all SLUH team registrations MUST be completed by Aug. 20th. Lastly, be aware that our SLUH Intrasquad (Blue & White) meet on Aug. 20th will also serve as a fundraiser to help swimmers raise the minimum $100.
This is a fun team-bonding event for a great cause: cancer research.

Now for a message from Swim Across America (SAA):
In our lifetime, 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will be diagnosed with cancer. We joined the Swim Across America community so that, together, we can change that.
If you are able, please support us by making a gift. The researchers we are funding are in our community and are the next generation of cancer pioneers. Without Swim Across America early stage funding, they are not able to conduct trials that can lead to breakthroughs that can save lives. Thank you for helping make an impact in the fight to find a cure!
