The Tucson El Dorado Aquatics Clubparticipated in the Southern Arizona Aquatics Association (SAAA) season end summer swim championships for children ages 6 years old all the way up to high school age.
The Tucson El Dorado Aquatics Team is a small, but spunky swim club here on Tucson's eastside and is home to swim sensation Caitlin Leverenz from the 2008 Beijing Olympics. The club is a non-profit organization that operates on monthly dues and fund raising events throughout the year to support the cost of keeping the pool heated and for our fine coaches!
The terrific coaching staff brought the Tucson El Dorado Aquatics Team to a 5th Place finish overall. However, many of the children won 1st and 2nd place in individual heats and team relays that included freestyle, backstroke, breast stroke and butterfly events.
Here are some photos of the outstanding Tucson El Dorado Aquatics athletes who took part in the championship event:
