Senior 1

Senior 2

At this week's special clinic by world renowned coach, Bob Gillett, we had huge turnout of senior 2 swimmers, who learned how to perfect one of the most important and under-utilized facet of swimming today: the underwater kick; specifically, the conceptual model of the Foil Movement, or 'Fish Kicks.' We will be incorporating this new technique into our training and racing. Video links were sent to Senior 2 families, be sure take a look and visualize yourself moving through the water that way.

Let's all congratulate Aditya for earning his second Far Western cut in the 200 fly! Aditya's hard work and dedication paid off sooner than expected. He swam smart by pacing a controlled fast tempo which is really hard to do in the 200 fly. The way he practiced it was exactly how he raced at the meet. We wish you good luck and keep up the good work in Sr 1! Congratulations!

“The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but a lack of will.”

-Vince Lombardi, NFL coach
