Campus Rec Aquatics Hosts Special Olympics Swim Meet Saturday
(MURFREESBORO) — Campus Recreation Aquatics will be hosting a Special Olympics Swim Meet this Saturday, April 30, starting at 9 a.m. in the Student Health, Wellness and Recreation Center indoor pool.
“This is the first time we have hosted this event, and we are looking forward to working with these athletes,” said Jenny Crouch, marketing and accessibilities coordinator for the rec center.
Volunteers, however, are needed “to help with the logistics that morning,” said Crouch, who added that anyone interested in volunteering can call her at 615-785-1305.
The pool will be closed to the campus and community during the hours the event will be taking place, said Crouch, who added that recreational swimmers’ use will resume when the pool opens at 1 p.m.
“We apologize for any inconvenience this may create in your swimming routine, but hope you understand and will be excited that we are able to host these special athletes,” Crouch said.
