Hey Sea Lions,
One meet down and many more to go! The swimmers and parents did a great job at time trials. The purpose of the meet is for the swimmers to practice racing and for the coaches to evaluate what the swimmers need to work on.
It was Great day at time trials! You, Sea Lions rocked it! The coaching staff is super excited about the improvements we saw with backstroke finishes and a much improved job on two hand touches. We now have a starting point for the rest of the season. It is important to learn what your weaknesses are in order to meet your goals. With that said we have many things to work on as we go forward. The coaching staff will continue to work on improving strokes and motivate the swimmers to be the best they can be. In order to succeed at this we must have you swimmer at workout, please come as often as you can.
One of our biggest focuses at swim practice has been working on under water stream lines off all walls.
Here is great video to watch how important under water work is in swimming.
See you at the pool!

Welcome to the 2018 SEA LION season!
On behalf of the Glen Oaks Sea Lions coaching staff, we are happy to welcome you to the 2018 swim season! We are looking forward to a productive season we would like to ensure that your children can achieve their highest potential. We recognize that in order to be successful in swimming, children need support from both the parents and coaching staff. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. We ask that you guide and support your swimmers learning by ensuring that they respect the coaches who are coaching and attend workout as much as possible. Please encourage them to participate in practices, be eager to learn and make changes, most of all have great sportsmanship with fellow team mates.
The coaching staff is really looking forward to working with all the swimmers over the coming months to make your child’s participation in this team is a positive and successful experience.
Glen Oaks swimming program will emphasize fun & enjoyment, skill development, and further advancement in each swimmer to become the best that they can be!
We want the children to learn all the basic skills of swimming and to become as skillful as they can. We also believe that forming friendships, developing a feeling of belonging and learning to share experiences with others is important to the swimmers.
It is our intention to give all the team members a tremendous amount of time and opportunity to be the best they can be. They will experience hard work, technical stroke work along with daily life skill lessons.
Communication is the key to our success. It is important that parents use the web site at all times. The site is a great resource for information and updates.
