LAP SWIM WORKOUT IDEAS: As some of our BAY swimmers are finding lanes in lap swimming pools, we have put together some set and workout ideas. Check them out here! We will add new suggestions every week. Just be sure the swimmers are focusing on technique, distance per stroke, kicking off the walls and using arms and legs equally.
JULY BILLING for Gold, JV, JV+, Prep, Varsity and Senior: As we head into the end of June, I’d like to recheck with you to see if your circumstances have changed. If you would like to suspend your membership, change your billing, apply for a scholarship or keep it the same, please let us know here. If we do not hear from you, we will continue your membership as it currently stands (keeping it the same as June.) Here is the form for July billing.
SUMMER READING CHALLENGE: Looking for a way to stay motivated this summer and tap into some real page turners? Check out our BAY Summer Reading Challenge! We will be tracking our swimmers, parents and coaches as they submit log entries throughout the months of June and July. Fill out the form including the title, author, number of pages and recap. We will have awards for the person in each age group who reads the most number of pages this summer!!! We will divide into ages 6 and under, 7-8s, 9-10s, 11-12s, 13-14s, 15-18s and parents/coaches. Who doesn’t love prizes?!?!
Our book review of the week comes from Coach Marisa who read Norwich: One Tiny Vermon Town’s Secret to Happiness and Excellence by Karen Crouse. The extraordinary story of the small Vermont town that has likely produced more Olympians per capita than any other place in the country—and whose citizens provide a model for achieving excellence while leading a well-rounded life. Norwich, a charming Vermont town of roughly three thousand residents, has sent an athlete to almost every Winter Olympics for the past thirty years—and three times, that athlete has returned with a medal.
CONGRATS TO THIS WEEK’S MOVIE REVIEW WINNER: JV swimmer, Sophia Ereno. She recommends the movie Artemis Fowl on Disney+. “I would give this movie a 10 out of 10 stars because the movie was action packed and entertaining to watch. This film taught me to never give up, no matter what the situation you are in.”
