Elmbrook Swim Club – Newsletter – March 19, 2020 - Week 1

 


 

Elmbrook Swim Club Mission Statement:

Empower community members to achieve excellence in life through swimming.

 


 

Head Coach Brent Boock Introduces “EBSC Out Of The Pool V2”

 

The Elmbrook Staff is committed to keeping our Elmbrook athletes active during this unprecedented interruption in training. The Elmbrook Swim Club’s athletes are used to being active and engaged in their sport and this is understandably a challenging time for everyone. For mental, physical, and spiritual wellbeing Elmbrook athletes are encouraged to maintain a scheduled workout regimen. 

 

To this end the staff is committed to offering workout suggestions, sharing video information, articles, etc. with the membership.  Members must “Opt In” to receive these communications due to liability issues and are highly encouraged to do so – HERE. Please understand that any activities done at home are done at one’s own risk. 

 

Staff will be sharing ideas and suggestions to everyone who “opts in” not just their individual training groups, but everyone who “opts in”. We wish to share these ideas globally as we are still a TEAM through this time. A senior athlete may find it interesting what the suggestions are for the Novice group, a novice athlete may find a video shared by a Senior coach interesting. TEAM ALWAYS. 

 

Swimmers and members are encouraged to post “EBSC Out Of The Pool V2” photos and videos to the EBSC Facebook page. These will be shared by the club via our Instagram account and newsletter. We hope to build a “virtual” training environment where we can share and be a part of each other’s workouts and activities even though we are engaging separately. 

 

Staff will begin sharing thing s to those who “opt in” this afternoon. There will certainly be a learning curve as the staff, athletes, and members adjust. Your patience with this process is greatly appreciated. Hopefully we will have access to pools sooner rather than later. Please feel free to share your feedback with the staff. 

 

I know the strength and dedication our athletes are capable of and this period will be a time of opportunity and growth for all. EXCELLENCE IN LIFE THROUGH SWIMMING!

EBSC Looks Back …

 

     

 

 

Senior 1 swimmer’s Michael Linnihan and Ido Korabelnikov have been teammates for a long time!  In August 2012, they competed in an open water event together and then took 1st and 2nd place in the 500 free at the 2013 12 & Under Short Course State Championships.

 

If you’d like to share a photo of your swimmer’s early days in the pool, please send them to Emily Wanezek at emwanezek@gmail.com.
