You know you are having fun as a coach when a group of 11 and 12 year olds approach you and ask when they can start morning practices. I was initially hesitant to begin AM workouts until after the first meet, but their enthusiasm was contagious. We will now offer morning workouts on Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridays beginning this upcoming week for our age groupers. I know that school start times vary, so we will offer a session from 5:15 - 6:15 and another from 6:00 - 7:00.
Please keep in mind that these are optional offerings; ones designed for children who are comfortable with the increases we have in the age group program to date. If your child is newer to the sport, or is still adjusting to the demands we have placed on their bodies in the afternoon, please let them sleep in. Just because some of the age groupers are excited about doing more does not mean it is right for everyone in the group. If you have questions, please contact me and ask if is appropriate in your situation.
We have made a lot of changes in a short period of time. There are still many to come. I appreciate all of your support during this time of transition. I can see a positive difference on deck each and every day. The future is bright here at Blue Wave.
See you at the pool - Rich
