Did you know that rubber ducks and swimming go together? I am currently swimming for Sachem Swim Club. I started swimming for them in August 2011. I love to swim. Swimming for Sachem Swim Club gets me closer to my dream of going to the Olympics someday. We go to meets and swim different events.

When you are 8 or younger, after every event you swim, you get a rubber duck. I have 9 rubber ducks in my collection. Now that I am 9, I have stopped getting rubber ducks after my events. Now I am earning ribbons, medals and certificates when I swim in my events.

Go to sachemswimclub.com if you want to register for this swim club. There is even a Masters group for your parents if they want to swim too! Have fun, fellow swimmers!
