Every weekend, we look forward to one,
To compete, chat, and have lotsa fun.
Whether its at Pacifica, Santa Cruz, or Walnut Creek
We're always there; it's what makes us unique!
We work hard during practice to push to our goals,
To improve our times, kicks and pulls.
Far Westerns, J.O.'s, even a CBA meet
All are perfect places for our opponents' defeat!
We love competing against friend or foe,
When asked to race, we never say "No!
With our TYR, Nike, or Speedo racing suit
Always, for our standards and goals, we shoot!
Eat a bit, swim a bit, race a bit with glee,
Go Daca, Go Pasa, Go everyone, go me!
Take your marks, beeeeep, go!
Everyone, swim fast, swim like a pro!
After a race, talk to your coach,
She'll tell you your time and correct your stroke.
Then get ready for another round,
Of warm up, racing, and warming down!

This is one poem from a series me and my friend wrote about the fantastic sport of swimming!
