Open water swim pre-register deadline tomorrow

The deadline to pre-register for the Second Annual Hanalei Open Water Swim is tomorrow. The event — for keiki and adults — will be on July 26 at the Hanalei Pier.

This year’s swim will be dedicated to the late Laurie Denton, last year’s inaugural women’s winner who later passed away of complications from breast cancer. A portion of the funds raised will go to support an individual or a family who is dealing with breast cancer.

Late registration will be taken at 7 a.m. on the day of the race at the pier. The event starts at 9 a.m.

Application forms are available either on or at various surf and bike shops or athletic clubs. For more information, call 826-7585.

College coaches to offer free baseball clinics

Various college baseball coaches will be on the Big Island for the seventh Annual Kalae Iki Youth Baseball Clinic, scheduled for July 18 through 20 at the Kailua-Kona baseball diamond.

This free clinic is open to boys and girls, aged 7 to 17.

Stanford’s Mark Marques, San Jose State’s Sam Piraro, University of Hawai‘i at Hilo’s Joe Estrella and former major leaguers Tim Leary and Billy Hasselmen are slated to be on this year’s staff.

The coaches will also be holding a seminar called “Preparing Your Child for College,” from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on the final day of the clinic at the Kekuaokalani Gym.

For more information, call Estrella at 974-7700.
