Penguin of the Month

Penguin of the Month

Each month, Ellis Aquatics coaches nominate and vote on two swimmers as the Penguin of the Month. The swimmers are picked based off of their effort in practice and meets, and the criteria listed here, which recognize a variety of different accomplishments of out swimmers.

Good luck!
