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.
