Hello swim team parents, summer seasons are about to culminate with state swim meet, 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 middle 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. 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. Hoping to have a GPS get together at Eldorado Canyon Park for hike/picnic/swim before school gets rolling.
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.
