Championship Mania is upon us. WooHoo! We kick off the
senior team portion of the championship season later today with the
start of the CT Senior Championships at Wesleyan. We follow
that with the Regional Championships at Cheshire, the Senior Invite
also at Wesleyan, Age Group Championships at Chelsea Piers and the
culmination with Y Nationals at Greensboro.
The good news is we are ready for battle and ready to rock.
All season we have paid attention to the little things. Done
swims to focus on the details while simultaneously making sure our
foundation is solid, stamina is strong, our speed is FAST and the
extra gear to race home for the finish. If swimmers have done
all of the above, attended practices, believe in the process and
most importantly, believe in themselves, then the odds are in favor
of success. I do not make predictions. That limits the
swimmer. Every swimmer has unlimited potential. Go
after your goals.
Success is a team effort. Yes, ultimately the swimmer gets on the
block to swim his/her race. Getting to that point is the
teammanship that takes place on a daily basis to push and support
each other. The coaches to direct the training as needed,
offer encouragement as well as challenge the swimmers. And
parents, your unconditional love and support of your swimmer is
priceless. Thank you for all you do.
We do have some changes in the practice schedule over the next few
weeks and will look to stay on top of them in a timely
fashion. Here are the immediate adjustments:
Friday, February 22: NO Morning. Regular Afternoon
Saturday, February 23: 7-9am
Monday, February 25: No Morning – Regular
