Announcing Orca Swim Team 2016 Juanita’s Cup

Juanita-Cup

Juanita’s Cup is the premier competition and program to encourage Orca Swim Team members to regularly exercise and track your progress. There’s no time limit for the distance milestones, except that they must be achieved this calendar year (2016). It doesn’t matter how fast you are—just the effort to attain whatever goal you set for yourself.

Juanita’s Cup, like your Grindr, Tindr, Scruff, etc. profiles, is on the honor system—you track the distance you swim. Daily, weekly, or monthly, enter that information into Juanita’s Stroke Counter. When you achieve certain milestones, you’ll be recognized on the Orca Swim Team website, at Monthly Potlucks, at Quarterly Blow Hole Parties, and at the Holiday Party at the End of the Year.

There’s no cost to enter Juanita’s Cup. All you need is a fierce drive to be awesome. You can log your yards through Juanita’s Stroke Counter on your desktop or mobile device. Results for the week will be posted on the Orca Swim Team Website on Saturdays.

Report your stokes to Juanita’s now!
