I’m so proud of our swimmers and everything they have accomplished so far this season. It’s definitely been one of our most successful seasons to date with so many of our swimmers reaching and surpassing their goals all throughout the club!
Some of TSC’s recent highlights have included placing athletes on the 2019 World Championship Team, the 2019 Junior World Championship Team, and the 2019 World University Games Team. TSC also won the Ontario Youth Junior Championships and most recently Top Cup - Canada’s premier 10 and under Championship!
Congratulations to all of our swimmers for a job well done!
When I see our athletes accomplishing such great things I am not only very proud but I am also motivated to become better. The question I am asked a lot is exactly that … how do I get better? How do I find out how fast I can really go?
The answers to these questions are personal, complex, and yet very simple.
Examples of greatness can literally be at our fingertips. Technology can help and I often suggest studying YouTube videos of the best swimmers from around the world. Any Olympics, World Championship or NCAA Championship is a great place to start. Becoming better can also come from watching teammates at the pool and having a successful team surrounding you every day. Swimmers should ask their coach for ideas - recognizing that there are always many ways to get better and faster. It’s important to be a student of our sport, watching and learning what the greatest swimmers in the world are doing on the road to Tokyo 2020.
With our program now in its last cycle for the season it is an ideal time to goal set and get excited for the final championship meets of the season. Keep things simple and work on areas that will have the most impact on your results. Above all - enjoy the process!
I wish everyone great success!
