Hello swim team parents! I am super excited to get the new 2014-15 season underway. Golden Phoenix Swimming Registration PDF file is ready, registration is open from the present till Aug 25th. If you need the GPS registration file, please contact Coach Dietrich. Upon receiving the file, print it out, fill in the data, send to Coach via snail mail please, registration closes Aug 25th. Late arrivals will be on placed on a waiting list.
From the response of returning athletes the team looks to be pretty near full with the addition of a few new families that come highly recommended. I am researching a meet schedule for the 2014/15 season, meets will begin by mid October, meets will be optional, however goals will be required for all athletes. As parent’s I am sure we are collectively taking a deep breath as we wrap up the summer and prepare for school and fall activities.
Our program is developed to reward swimmers for meeting OUR criteria of success. To us, success equals improvement. Rather than focusing on winning, or comparing one swimmer to another, we provide swimmers with incremental goals in all of their events, BASED ON THEIR INDIVIDUAL LEVEL OF ABILITY. These goals encourage our swimmers to focus on improving their times, and to swim all events, rather than specialize at an early age.
