Aquadogs holding local swim meet this weekend

The Kirksville swim team, the Aquadogs, are having their local swim meet this Saturday.

Young swimmers in Kirksville are getting ready for a big day on Saturday.

The Aquadogs are having their local swim meet in Kirksville this Saturday at 9 a.m. at the outdoor pool at the Aquatic Center.

The swim team has kids from ages 6-18 that meet year round and it is an excellent opportunity for kids to perfect their swimming techniques.

"In order to join Aquadogs, you need to be able to make it to the end of the pool and back. The coaches will work with you one-on-one to refine your stroke techniques and increase your speed and endurance. It builds that life long fitness and something you'll have forever," said Aquadogs President Melissa Chapman.

The team has invited three other teams to the meet and the meet is open to the public.
