Dialogue is encouraged between the swimmer, their parents and coach. If you have a concern that needs undivided attention from your coach, please schedule a time to meet. The swim coach that is running practice is generally not available to answer questions during practice. The best time to talk to the coach is after practice. Emailing the coach is the best option.
