Fusion Sponsors Boltz Swim Team For Youth

Coach Mary Beth Seher
Building on the longtime success of the summer swim team, Montgomery County Sharks, Fusion Fitness & Aquatics in Hillsboro has started a winter youth competitive swimming program.

The Boltz swim team, which began in October with six members, has grown to 15 swimmers from Hillsboro, Greenville, Litchfield and Waggoner. Practices are held at the Fusion pool from 4 to 6 p.m. Monday-Friday.

The team is coached by Fusion staffer, Mary Beth Seher, a certified lifeguard who teaches most of the facility’s aqua aerobics classes. Assistant Coach Steven Livingstone is also a certified lifeguard and leads the swim lesson programs at Fusion.

This is Mary Beth’s first time to coach swimmers, and she’s dived in with enthusiasm.
“I had to learn everything about competitive swimming,” she says, “from how to run a practice to what a meet is like, plus the rules and regulations of the USA Swim competitive league.”

Executive Director Jessica Chappelear said that Mary Beth has spent many days on the road meeting and developing working relationships with coaches of teams from Jacksonville, Lincoln, Sullivan, Taylorville, Springfield and Decatur.

The Boltz first participated in a Dec. 7 swim meet at Jacksonville. On Jan. 10 the team traveled to Lincoln, where they competed in 30 events including individual events, medleys and four-member relays. Boltz swimmers placed 1st in 17 events, 2nd in seven and 3rd in ten events.

Fusion now offers two levels of instruction, depending on the swimmer’s abilities. For those who are working on swimming the length of the pool and developing strokes, practices are offered three days a week, 4-5 p.m., at a cost of $30/ members and $40/non-members.
Beginning swim lessons are also offered on Saturday morning.

To join the Boltz, a swimmer must know the four strokes –– breast stroke, back stroke, butterfly and free style –– and be able to swim the length of the pool, 25 yards. Practices are available five days a week, 4-6 p.m., at a cost of $50/members and $60/non-members.

Fusion has joined USA Swim, the national governing body for competitive swimming that leads the Olympics and currently has 266,000 athletes. Seher has been certified as a coach by USA Swim, and Fusion is looking for others interested in coaching and becoming certified. Also needed are volunteers to serve as officials and timers so that Fusion could host a swim meet.

For more information, contact Seher or Chappelear at Fusion, 217-532-3896.

Fusion Members and Guests:

With our recent insurance renewal, the following changes have been made to ensure a safe and healthy environment for all members and guests.

1.) As we are updating our member and guest records, all members and guests must sign an updated waiver to enter the facility.

2.) Anyone entering Fusion under the age of 18 must have a signed waiver by the parent or legal guardian before they will be allowed admission.

3.) For your safety, we will have a certified lifeguard in the pool all hours that the pool is open. Therefore, if we are unable to have a lifeguard in the pool area, it will be closed. We will be closing the Pool to the public between 1-4pm on Mondays and Wednesdays effective immediately. We are currently looking for those interested in becoming a certified lifeguard and working daytime hours. If you or anyone is interested in becoming a lifeguard, please contact Fusion.

We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause. Our members and guests can be assured that your safety is our number one priority.
