Special Events for Children and Teens

July will be full of special events for the younger members of Kanawha.  First will be the Splash & Dash Event on July 14.  Then during the week of July 16-20, there will be a Junior Tennis Camp, and there will also be another session of the Junior Tennis Camp during the week of August 20-24.


On July 14th, Kanawha is hosting the RVA Splash & Dash Series, and we want to invite everyone to participate!   The RVA Splash and Dash Series is a 4-race swim-run series between local swim teams. Each race includes a 100 m swim swim followed by a 1 mi run.  Participants compete in each race to win series and team awards plus raise money for our team and the Cameron K Gallagher Foundation.   Check out the flyer on the bulletin board by the snack bar and the banner on the main walkway for more information.  The event begins at 8:AM on that Saturday morning.  To register your child go to www.endorphinfitness.com and click on Races and then click on RVA SPLASH & DASH.  This event is open to all children in the area.  They do not have to be Kanawha members, so KRA children are encouraged to invite their friends from other pools to participate.

Volunteers are also needed to direct traffic, give out water, and make sure everyone is safe.  Older teenagers who want to earn school service hours and adults are encouraged to sign up to volunteer.  You may use this link to register as a volunteer:   https://goo.gl/forms/IsqXX4Xz2LRF4fgq2.
