Coach's Note

Hello TEAM,

This past weekend our competitive groups had their first Long Course meet. The transition to racing Long Course can sometimes be a challenge. My friend Coach Rick, Head coach of the Milton Tritons, writes a blog about swimming in Canada and he has a great short read on the Long Course transition. I encourage all to read. Rick has many other great reads that you can check out on his blog which will only increase your knowledge on the sport.

Thanks
Coach Chris
