“It’s not the will to win that matters—everyone has that. It’s the will to prepare to win that matters.”

Gold - boys
Please remember it is important to attend practices on Fridays and Saturdays leading up to Long Course Season. These are our only Long Course practices until our summer practice schedule starts in May.
Good Job to the new swimmers from Yellow! Older Gold Swimmers: Be afraid....VERY AFRAID!!!
"When I go out and race, I'm not trying to beat opponents, I'm trying to beat what I have done ... to beat myself, basically. People find that hard to believe because we've had such a bias to always strive to win things. If you win something and you haven't put everything into it, you haven't actually achieved anything at all. When you've had to work hard for something and you've got the best you can out of yourself on that given day, that's where you get satisfaction from."
--- Ian Thorpe
Have a great week!
Gold - girls
