PRESENTATION (PHS) SCHEDULE
CROSSGATES (XG) SCHEDULE
WEEKEND MEET RECAP: We did it! So many brand new swimmers took to the pool at Willow Glen HS for a great weekend of racing and accomplished so much. The weather was wonderful and we had over 300 lifetime bests over the course of the meet. The results will be uploaded to the team website under “my meet results” by mid-week. Ribbons will be available for pickup by Thursday.
We race so we can see if the things we are working on at practice are translating into their races. Being “competitive” can test the swimmer in ways that daily practice can not. The swimmers make mistakes, but we all learn from them (the swimmers can practice the right way to do things in practice and the coaches can watch for that mistake to be corrected by going over it until it is right.) So if your swimmer was nervous, that’s TERRIFIC. Getting comfortable being uncomfortable is a great life skill for them to master. If your swimmer made a mistake and got DQed, missed a race or forgot the correct turn, even BETTER. Mistakes help us grow. If your swimmer earned a best time, CELEBRATE. It’s the learning along the way that makes this sport so fanastic!
WED-SAT PRACTICE FOR GOLD, JV, JV+, V/S AT PHS: Congrats to the PHS Water Polo team for their D2 CCS Championship. They will move onto the Norcal Tournament playing at Tamalpais HS on Tuesday. GO PRES! Our practice times were adjusted for Monday’s pool availability. Wednesday-Friday is dependent on their Tuesday night game.
