Hello, Riptiders...It's Coach Craig,
Always be thinking about swimming and know that all great swimmers started right where you are now, swimming in the spring/summer for their home swim teams. They were working on their strokes and skills and getting stronger every day and having the time of their lives.
Swimming can and will change your life forever! I want you to watch as much swimming as you can, especially before a meet. Don't wait till you come to the pool to start thinking about what you need to do in the water. Train the brain "before" you come to the pool. Here's a couple of videos.
>>> Please watch, remember, and learn. Thanks, Coach
