One of the most frustrating times of the year is championship meet season. Each year we spend months preparing swimmers for the championships and then families schedule events during the championships and we rarely go into the championship meets at 100%.
Swimming is a strange sport in that way. You never see the quarterback of the football team tell the coach and the rest of the players they aren't coming to the championship game due to having scheduled a private lesson with their flute instructor.
I sometimes flirt with the idea of making the championships mandatory, but I want to make sure the team still offers flexible options.
So rather than penalize people for making personal choices, I've decided to reward the behavior/choices we want to see more of.
