Rebekah did not make it onto the regular swim team. They had tryouts. All you had to do was swim a legal stroke of freestyle and backstroke. Rebekah did great on backstroke. When they asked her to do freestyle she said no. She didn't want to do it. Therefore she is on the mini team.
Today was their first mini meet. There are only 3 events: Kickboard, Freestyle, and Backstroke. And they have 2 junior coaches in each lane to help the kids out. Rebekah did great! I think she got 46 seconds on one and 41 seconds on the other (kickboard was a lot slower). I actually think the junior coach slowed her down b/c she was right in her way instead of on the side. Anyway, she had a great swim.
