A Note from the Coach: 

It is HOT outside! It is so important that swimmers stay properly hydrated. Please be sure to send swimmers to practice with a bottle of water. The recommended amount to drink is 8oz for every 15-20 minutes of swimming. Gold and Platinum swimmers need to bring at LEAST 32oz or they will not be allowed to participate in practice. We cannot risk the swimmers' health from possible dehydration.

We are entering the Late Season of our Training Cycle (remember, detailed information on our training cycles can be found by clicking here). This is the time in the season when swimmers (who have been training hard and attending practice regularly) should achieve Goal Times and/or earn State Qualifying Times, if either have not already been achieved.

During this cycle we are focusing on

  • Continuing to be consistent in practice attendance
  • A progressive shift from endurance to speed training
  • Continuing emphasis on proper technique while building speed
  • Having a positive attitude and determination to achieve our goals
