December 16 – The Stars finished 2012 with a special fitness session, led by Physical Therapists Anita Davidson and Nichole Harju from Creative Rehab Center for Sports, Wellness and Rehab (with offices in Gurnee and Libertyville). Anita and Nichole created a special dry land program of stretches, bridges and planks for the Stars.RBP_0369

The challenge: Swimmers, strive to continue your dry land homework on your own-and encourage your parents to join you!  

The goal: To be faster, healthier swimmers in 2013-and beyond!

We gathered in the LHS cafeteria  for a holiday lunch to top off the year-end celebration!   >>

We started the session with a special check presentation by 
Brad and Ingrid Hoffmann, who with friends and family, hosted a wonderful benefit on November 18, to celebrate and commemorate the life of Brad’s sister and Stars athlete Debbie Hoffmann. The benefit included a pig roast, a 50/50 raffle, live music and lots of raffle prizes.

January 6, 2013!
