Brooke Cordoba and her South Florida Aquatic Club teammates will get the chance to practice what they have been learning at Mullins Park.
Twenty-one swimmers from Mullins Park will participate at the Florida Gold Coast Comets Open Invitational that begins on Friday and ends Sunday.
The three-day meet at Academic Village Pool in Pembroke Pines is a great opportunity for 12-and-unders to learn about racing, including starts, splits and breathing.
It will also give Coach Jessica and Coack Keri the opportunity to take a look at swimmers' stroke techniques while they are racing.
Cordoba, 10, the Mullins Park January Swimmer of the Month, will be joined by training mates Aaron Garber, Bennett Brown, Brooks Brown, Andres McKeon, Sebastien Parks, Alex Dworet, Kyle Oliver, Joseph Turner, Andrew McDade, Sam McCormick, Curtis Marcoux, Anna Gally, Beliz Aral, Faith Newby, Victoria Grimaldi, Meredith McDade, Kailey Norusis, Tyler Williams, Giulianna Garcia and Joshua Garber.
The 12-and-unders will compete in timed finals on Saturday and Sunday at 11:30 a.m. On Friday, the meet begins 5:30 p.m. with the 12-and-under 200-yard freestyle, 200-yard individual medley and 1,650-yard freestyles.
