Other Pertinent Information
Goal Sheets

A personal swimmer goal sheet is an important communication tool between swimmer and coach.  It communicates the swimmer’s aspirations for the upcoming season.  As much as possible, it is important for the swimmer to independently complete their goal sheet in their own handwriting.  Goal sheets are available at practice and on the team website, under the header “Resources,” and sub-header “Goal Sheets.”

Go Cohoes!
