Sock Brigade is a tradition started in the 2022-2023 season. It began because the intrusive thoughts of Luke Myers and Cole Elliott got the best of them. They thought it would be funny knowing Coach Cindy’s ex-military history to walk out onto the pool deck (with a handful of others) in formation wearing nothing but their suits and socks. The boys then experienced a hellish practice where their bodies met incomparable fatigue, unprecedented for its time. Thus, the Sock Brigade was born. Sock Brigade is a good way for the team to challenge their physical boundaries and experience a fun new setting for practice (boot camp). There are no official sock brigade dates, they are decided whenever the brigade decides to march out of the locker rooms, socks on feet, water guns in hand, saluting their master chief, and waiting for their next order. We hope that this new tradition can continue for many years to come as new generations of Kennett swimmers fill the ranks. Semper Soccus!
