Camp Covid - Week 2:

From Coach Stefan:

We continue to focus on stroke mechanics and slowly but surely integrating some endurance and speed. All the coaches have been addressing each camps’ main weakness and tailored their program according to their swimmers needs. At this time everything is moving gradually to give our athletes an opportunity to be thoughtful while executing their distances. 

 

I am also very happy to report that we have done a better job wearing our masks and face coverings and that we continue to excel with our social distancing during practices. Well done to all and keep up the good work!

PST Mentoring Program: 

For All Groups

Need advice on how to stay motivated? Have a question about managing race day nerves? Just want to chat with someone who gets it because they’ve been there? The mentoring program is underway but there’s always room for more mentors and mentees! Click here to fill out the google form and take advantage of this wonderful opportunity (and if you need more reasons or tips on being a good mentor, check out this SwimSwam article on Why swimmers should peer mentor younger teammates). Please reach out to Kate Aubrecht if you have any questions (kate.au72@gmail.com).


 

PARENTS: Help Us Become a SafeSport Recognized Club! 

Aside from the importance of creating an abuse-free, safe and healthy environment for all of our members, achieving Safesport recognition will give us higher priority in grant considerations! The third round of grants will be opening in mid-July and we are very close but cannot be recognized without at least 10% of our parents and athletes (age 12 and older) completing an online education training.

The training is about 20 minutes, well done and broadly applicable, even outside of the swimming environment. You can complete the training as a USA Swimming member or nonmember:
