No Workout on Friday, September 13th!

Senior Group Structure: Performance Group

Just a gentle reminder that part of the Performance Group’s definition includes the following clause:

Consideration will be given to 15 year old swimmers who have demonstrated the self-responsibility to train at the level expected of this group and are willing to commit to the meet schedule and training schedule for this group.”

If you are concerned about your 15 year-old swimmers group placement, please speak with your coach from last year. Thank you!

Gold - boys

It was great to see the improvements that were made during the last week of practices. Be prepared to make adjustments during the stroke clinics and absorb as much information as you can. You're attendance and focus for the next three weeks is important to the success of the fall season and beyond.

 

Gold - girls

The first short course meet of the season was a very successful last weekend for many! Excellent job Gold Girls! Also, 11-12 Gold Girls swimmers broke 7 team records at the Far Western and NACC meets. The records broken were:

Nicole Oliva 50 back - 100 back

Sophia Sebastian 200 breaststroke - 200 fly

Cathy Teng 50 fly -200 IM

Krystal Tran -1500 free

Congratulations!!!
