I would like to thank the parents for attending the Zoom Conference call last week. As more information is assimilated we will host another call to share with everybody. Until then know that we are working to reopen with a safe plan for all swimmers, coaches and staff.
It has been a long time since I have seen everybody! Miss your happy wet faces!! Can you believe that it is week 9 of our S&C Challenge! Hope that you all had a good weekend and enjoyed time with your families. Would love to see everybody on Wednesday when we have our group chats over Zoom Conference Calls. Each group has an assigned time to dial in and we can all visit. We will have these team Zoom calls every Wednesday until we get back into the water. If you have a question, comment or suggestion about S&C or what is coming up, now is your chance to ask. I will send out a reminder with the meeting link on Tuesday. The times are 12:30pm Silver and Gold; 1:00-1:30pm Bronze; 2:00-2:30pm Sr and PrSr. If you have issues signing in please send me a text or email. Look forward to hearing how everybody is doing!! Please continue to stay safe and heathy. Please remember to practice safe distancing according to the CDC Guidelines. South Texas Swimming which is our LSC for USA Swimming has a Covid-19 link on their web page. It has great information about what USA Swimming is doing in regards to moving forwards. That link is https://www.teamunify.com/SubTabGeneric.jsp?_stabid_=206159&team=szstxlsc
The workout this week will be fun and challenging. Get your water balloons ready to go, grab those jump ropes and maybe a towel! Do not worry if you do not have mini dumbbells or weights at your house. Everything will be able to be done with things you have at home. So, lace up those running shoes, grab that water bottle and get prepared for a hot week of great fun! : )
Keep posting your pictures and videos! It is awesome to see everybody working hard. It will pay off when we get back into the water. Please remember to video or take pictures and post to the team Facebook site or the Circle C Aquatics FB page. Challenge each other to see who can do the most days of S&C without missing. Post a video or picture of each day. Some swimmers do not have FB and have sent emails. That works, just have your mom or dad send to your pictures or video to: email@example.com. To qualify the workouts must be done on the day it states in the email. You cannot do them all on one day and post the pictures, one picture or video a day. The swimmer who does the most in each swim group will get an awesome prize ($50 gift card) when we return to the water. If there is at tie we will put the names in a hat and draw the first day we return to the water for the winner in that group. There will be a smaller prize for all swimmers who are participating in the tied drawing who do not win the $50 gift card.
I am so proud of all who are participating! It is not to late to join up! Jump in this week and you will see the payoff in the water when we get back to swim workouts. This week we are using information from my S&C training book and conversations with other coaches. Any questions please email me firstname.lastname@example.org or give me a call 210-632-4344.
Let’s be safe and take care,
Coach Jennie Lou
