CRA Team Invite Meet Report

 

Charles River Aquatics

Team Invite

Wellesley, Massachusetts

Friday, October 18th – Sunday, October 20th

 

Our PPSC swimmers that traveled to Wellesley to swim in the brand-new Edge Sports complex pool in Wellesley did a fantastic job competing and had a great time together. Most swimmers competed in up to four events in short sessions and did consistently well – some even with new personal best times.

At this time of the year, when the Senior swimmer in particular, are tired we simply look to see if swimmers are executing technical aspects (such as starts, turns, and underwaters) well, if they have a good mental approach to their races, and how well they “split” their races. Seeing all these things done consistently and well gives us a pretty good idea that they have a pretty good level of fitness and have been working diligently on important things that add up to a lot of time.

For the things listed above, it was great to see them do these things well, and added bonus was seeing that a majority of the time they were interacting with and supporting, and enjoying each other’s company – which always makes a meet for fun and successful!

Great work swimmers, we look forward to the next one!
