What About the Award Ceremony?

This year, we will be trying something different. Scheduling conflicts prevented us from having our regular award banquet at Christ Chapel, so this year, we are planning a big, end of summer party for our swimmers, which will include an award ceremony. Mark your calendars for August 3rd (this will be the Saturday after school resumes, and will also kick-off our annual break). Additional details will be announced soon!
Our Summer swim lesson schedule is underway, and there are only a few spots remaining. Please help us spread the word about our summer lessons - Let's make sure every child in Warner Robins knows how to swim! More information on our lessons can be found here.

A Note from the Coach: 

This month, I want to reinforce the idea and importance of goal setting, and point swimmers and parents in the direction of a great resource that is available on our website: Time Standards - This page has links to time standards for all upcoming LSC Championship meets, as well as the USA Swimming Single and Double Age Motivational Time Standards.

What are Motivational Time Standards? These are the best goal-setting tools at your disposal. These have been designed as stepping stones to help swimmers progress, and gives a swimmer obtainable goals to reach for in between their first meet and their first State cut. At WRA, we focus primarily on Single-Age times, so that no swimmer is at a disadvantage from being in the lower-end of their age-group. We use Single-Age times to determine meet eligibility, and going-forward, these will be used for our annual Awards Ceremony. 

One key to the goal-setting process is knowing where you are at, so you know how to get where you want to go. Several resources are available for a swimmer and their parents to keep track of their current Best Times. USA Swimming's Deck Pass will record times for swimmers who have participated in USA Swimming meets (it also records any Double-Age standards you may have achieved, but you will have to look at the above link to compare your times to the Single-Age standards). To see Best Times including our home meets, as well as GRPA meets, use the OnDeck app to access times from all meets you've attended - This information can also be accessed from the "My Meet Results" page, located on the right-side menu, within your account.
