YB Swimmers,
I am off to Harker for the next couple of months. Study this warm-up hard. Using only one arm a time is really going to show us how we are swimming, forcing us to think about body position and balance of the stroke. I look forward to seeing you guys at workout this coming weekend and days to come.  Swim hard, swim fast and have fun. I can't wait until May. I've got
big plans for summer!
- Coach Steve
