Hello swim team parents! I am amazed that the 2014-15 season is about to be completed. Now that school is in it’s final phases and summer is just around the corner, lets keep up demonstrating what contributing looks like, sounds like and feels like at practice. As coach I will continue to consistently encourage organized, mindful, cooperation as benchmarks of team and individual success. The team has come along way this year, many new swimmers and I know each and every one of you will do a great job this summer in your respective Summer Swim Clubs.
Team Suits $ 50 Jammers, $65 Female Suits. If you haven’t paid coach for swim suit, please do so.
We will continue working as a team exercising our conduct lane organization or CLO skills, athletes will be run through a series of swimming component skills, such as accelerating, submerging, surfacing, stopping, changing directions, listening, observing, and a lot of DOING whole swimming patterns. We want a purposeful and action packed athletic experience for all GPS athlete’s each and every session.
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.
