    Although swimming is technically considered an individual sport, we get by with the help of our teammates! They keep us motivated when we want to quit, and make us laugh when coach makes us want to cry. Without our teammates, swimming just wouldn’t be the same, which is why we are celebrating #LoveYourTeam week this Valentine's week at!

    During #LoveYourTeam week we’ll have flash sales, behind the scenes video with our Team Division, sweet treats you can make for your teammates, and even a couple of giveaways! Follow along with us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat to join the fun!

    To kick the week off, we’re sharing 25 reasons why we love our teammates. What's your No 1 reason you love your teammates?

    1) They write “eat my bubbles” on your back for you

    2) They make jokes about coach when he/she isn’t looking

    3) They don’t judge us when we pee in the pool
