 2020 Summer Olympics!

The 2020 Tokyo Olympics are FINALLY here! Opening ceremonies will begin on Friday, July 23, at 6:00am CST. All week long, Houston Swim Club Swim School will be following the summer Olympics in Toyko, rooting for Team USA, and sharing their triumphs and challenges.

Swimming competitions will begin on Saturday, July 24, and will continue throughout the week until Sunday, August 1. You can read all about the USA Swim Team on the usaswimming.org team page. Check out the entire swimming schedule for the week of events.

Ask your little swimmer what their favorite stroke is! Freestyle? Backstroke? Butterfly? Find their event on the schedule and tune in to watch!

We're also excited to see the return of Simone Manuel to the 2021 Olympics!

We followed Simone's progress in the 2016 Olympics where she took home the gold medal in the Women's 100m Freestyle. Simone will be swimming on Friday, July 30 in the Women's 50m freestyle. She's been assigned to Heat 9 at 5:36am EST. Be sure to tune in and support our hometown athlete!

 Women's 50m Freestyle, Heat 9

If you didn't already know, Simone took swim lessons as a child at our HSC Sharpstown pool. Yes, she was a Guppy once, too, so we're especially excited to watch her compete! You never know what might spark when children are introduced to swimming. Maybe your little Guppy will be the next to grow up and swim in the Olympics! You can read more about Simone and her journey in her recent New York Times feature.

When you are at swim class, be sure to stop by the office or check-in desk between July 26 and August 1 for an awesome Howey Olympics tattoo (temporary of course!) and take a photo at our "Future Olympians" photo wall.

If you don't already, head over and follow our Facebook and Instagram pages where we will be following the Olympics all week long!
