CHRISTMAS ORNAMENT FROM COACHES

If you did not get your Christmas Ornament from the coaches please ask your coach for one, every swimmer should have received one.

 

THOUGHT OF THE DAY FROM THE ASCA WORLD CLINIC

 

Here is a piece of recovery that we talk about. Video game limitation to where it is non-existent at a certain time of the season, because that stimulation and emotion that the guys put into it is amazing. There is no rest in that, your heart rate is up, you're yelling, screaming and sweating, that does not look like recovery. So we talk about limiting that at certain times in the season

 

-Coach Dave Durden, CAL
