Ammelia McKinney comes up for air during last Thursday’s swim team practice. There are still openings to join the team, coach Toni McKinney said.

Houston swim coach Toni McKinney said she is still accepting members for this year’s team.

Although practices have begun, the first meet isn’t until June 2. McKinney said swimmers of all ages are encouraged to join.

“Even adults,” she said, “so this is a family activity.”

Cost is $50 for swimmers ages 16 and under. Those 17 and older are free.

McKinney said anyone interested in swimming should come watch a practice. Practices are 5:30-7:30 p.m. Monday and Thursday and 7:30-8:30 a.m. Wednesday and Friday. McKinney said swimmers are not required to attend all practices but are asked to come to at least two per week.

Anyone with questions or seeking more information should contact McKinney at 417-260-1557.

McKinney thanked Corner Express and Shelter Insurance for generous donations to the team.

“The swim team appreciates your support,” she said.
