Teaching Tuesday: Stretching
Swimming works just about every single muscle in the
body, especially the core, arm muscles, shoulders and upper back.
Stretch Coach states, “In freestyle, the mail muscles used
are the large muscles of the thigh, and the chest and shoulder
muscles. In the butterfly stroke, the abdominals, the lower back
and the shoulder muscles are used!

Rules and Regulations News: Important Update
The Rules and Regulations for Swim Coaches test will
be unavailable from April 15-30.
The officials’ online tests will
also be unavailable on these dates. All of these tests are being
updated to allow for the May 1st rule changes.
There is no grace period for coaches; they cannot be on deck at
practice or meets until they meet the education requirement. The
Rules and Regulations for Swim Coaches test is part of the
2nd year coach membership requirement. You may get
calls from panicked coaches but there is nothing they can do until
the updated tests are back online May 1st.
