All Performance Groups

There will a temporary time change for the Performance Prep group pending the hiring of our new lead coach for this group. Until further notice, Prep will be starting at 3:30 instead of 3:45. If your swimmer’s schedule only allows them to come in at 3:45 they are welcome to join us at that time, and finish up at 5:45 with the Hi Performance group.


You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life. ” -Steve Jobs


Something to think about and evaluate about yourself before, during, and after each training session.


Three Measures of Workout Success


  1. Technique/Are you working on every aspect of the race you want for yourself?

  1. Stroke Technique

  2. Turns and Streamlines

  1. Are you doing the number of dolphin kicks that is expected?

  2. Are you aggressively attacking each turn?

  1. Tempo and Stroke Count

  1. Do you know what your stroke count is?

  2. What is the tempo you should feel for each stroke?

  1. Attitude/What is your personal inventory in regards to your attitude?

  1. Attitude towards the workout

  2. Attitude towards your coach and the assistant

  3. Attitude towards your teammates

  1. Teamwork and sportsmanship

  1. Attitude towards self

  2. Attitude towards learning, growing, and improving


  1. Effort

  1. Each day regardless of how you feel, on everything that you are supposed to do, are you giving 100%?

  2. Be honest when you think about this and evaluate your effort, the more honest the assessment, the more true you will be towards yourself and the success you are trying to create.


Performance Prep

We had a terrific turnout at our first morning practice last week, as well as Saturday morning.  Let's keep up the commitment level, hard work and the great attitudes!  Remember:

" Confidence is the most important single factor in this game, and no matter how great your natural talent, there is only one way to obtain and sustain it: work."
Jack Nicklaus


Super streamlines! Fast under-waters! Speedy breakouts!  Great job this week really paying attention to these important building blocks of great swimming form.  This week we will build some more!

" Success is not arriving at the peak overnight; it is making continuous progress. Success is not a destination, but an adventure, which is accessible to all who dare to venture. So, when everyday is a plus on the previous, you can be termed successful." - Author Unknown


Gold - boys

Nice to see the boys getting back to work. REMINDER: Goal Sheets are due back to coach Mark by this Tuesday, October 8. Also, remember to think about this week' score value assignment. "What does integrity mean to you?"  Go SCSC!

Gold - girls

Ladies when you set a goal remember: you should try to swim not only  faster but better - with better technique, fewer strokes per length , and more beautifully. The better the technique, the more time goals you reach. Have fun.
