Hello swim team parents, summer seasons are about to culminate with league and state swim meets, good luck to all athletes! I am super excited to get the new 2014-15 season underway. Coaches ten year old laptop finally has been replaced, I am hoping for a smooth transition, getting it all “dialed” in. My email, phone and computer seem to be working, last item is my printer, anyway will figure it out soon. Working on getting all registration info ready to go should be ready by the end of this week. I am excited to hear about everyone’s summer, and look forward to hearing about our athlete’s goals for the upcoming season.
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. My question to parents is this, “Would you prefer to get started right after Labor Day or settle into school rhythm and then begin Monday Sept 15th?” Let me know, depends on pool availability, which I will hear about shortly and share the options.
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.
