  3. Coach Spotlight: This week, we’re featuring Coach Heather Doughterty…
    • I've been coaching for over 20 years starting at the Lebanon YMCA, Robesonia, Conestoga Valley, Milton a Hershey, and EAC.
    • My favorite thing about coaching is pushing swimmers to be better than they thought they could be.
    • My favorites:
      1. Color – blue
      2. Food – cookies
      3. Holiday - National Cookie Day
      4. Stroke – backstroke
    • A piece of advice I want the swimmers to have: If your dreams don't scare you, they aren't big enough.

  1. Blue & Green: Here is a great video showing how to prevent shoulder injury with a few exercises. The only equipment used is a stretch cord and tennis ball. There is no weight lifting, which makes it good for all ages.
  2. Green: Here are this week's stroke videos for green:

That's it for this edition. Have amazing week!

Just keep swimming,
