Final Coach's Corner

Coach’s Corner - July 30, 2017

The season has officially come to a close, with both All Star Swim Meets in the record books. We had 8 relay teams represent us at Saturday All Star Relay meet, while 8 swimmers took part in the Sunday’s Individual events.  As I’ve stated before, it has been an absolute pleasure working with your sons and daughters this season. I was very fortunate to have a talented staff of assistant coaches, as well as coaches in training.

A real plus for me and ultimately the team, was the return of Annarose Kennedy, a former Kingfish swimmer, as our Assistant Head Coach.  I wish all swimmers a successful school year, and, of course, rest and relaxation for what remains of your summer. Hopefully you’ll get some time away from the pool before the school year begins again in earnest. The same wish is extended to all the parents, as you put in a lot of volunteer hours this season. I also hope you get some time to rest and relax.


Please keep in mind what I’ve mentioned in my past Coach’s Corner. Try to find a place where you can continue working on your swimming technique, which will allow you a smoother transition into the summer of 2018.
