A Note from the Coach: 

"Building Friendships, Training Champions:"

We hope this mindset is present in everything we do, from practice to meets, from coaches to swimmers, from pool to home. Training champions is about more than winning a heat - It's about training champions in life. It's about developing resiliency, integrity, and a mentality that obstacles are just challenges to overcome, and that humility is the greatest strength. Being a champion is not about winning an event, but reaching your fullest potential. In all of this, we are strengthened by our teammates - whether being motivated to push on when there is a tough training set, or encouraged after a difficult day at school. And therein lies the importance of building friendships, because those friendships, in turn, help provide the strength we need to train as champions.

Divisionals is a great opportunity to work, as a team, toward something greater than just an individual performance. It's our chance to show the rest of our Division what being an Aquanaut is all about. It's about getting excited for your teammates when they have a great race. Really excited. Yelling your face off excited. It's about swimming so hard you don't know how you'll get out of the pool when the event is over, and then coming back and swimming it even harder at finals. And Divisionals is the reward: It's the culmination of a season's worth of training. It's a weekend of just having fun, racing and making memories with your friends, after weeks of long, challenging practices.

Now, let's go compete alongside our friends, and lift each other up as champions.    

 
Later this month, we will be entering our taper in preparation for the team Championship, and will be focused on:

  • Refining specific racing skills.
  • Reducing practice duration while maintaining practice intensity.
  • Rest and recovery.
  • Mental preparation.
Remember, more details on our training cycles can be found on our website under Team resources, or by clicking here.
