A Message from Head Coach John Bitter

To the swimmer competing at Far Westerns:

The season has been an exciting one at SCSC! It has also been one of many hours of hard training and grueling laps, all with the goal of creating the best possible outcome for all in mind. As you step upon the blocks at Independence High School at Far Western Championships this week, trust that all of the time and hard work you have put into this sport in the past year. Believe that whatever you want to achieve is within reach. How fast you can go and how special you can be is within all of us, know that and allow for it to happen. Be great for yourself, but also be great for your teammates, as we are SCSC and through team, we can all be better than we ever thought.

To All SCSC Swimmers:

As the season winds down, we are already planning for next season and what we want to see happen. In reviewing the past year, we have recognized the need to reorganize to better create the proper developmental tracks for our upper level swimmers. Come fall, after the stroke clinic is complete, we will unveil what we believe are some exciting changes to the senior end of our program. Our goal is to always create and provide the proper opportunities for our swimmers and we feel the changes that we are going to implement will allow for this to happen. I will continue to keep our membership informed as the changes are implemented as we go into a new season in the fall of 2013.


August Board Meeting

Our next board meeting will be held August 14th at 7pm in the rotunda at the ISC.

Ladies remember: Always "Believe in yourself!" Never give up hope, and tell yourself over and over that you are a champion. Do it enough, your brain will believe it, and your body will achieve it. Good luck at the Far Western Championships!



The end of our season is nearly upon us. Please note the modification to our practice schedule starting Monday, the 5th of August.
