We had some outstanding swims from our athletes here in Orlando. It seems we had a great turnout at the Recreational meet at BSAC as well. I was checking out results at hydroxphere.com in between watching swims in Orlando. I love reading meet results; especially when they involve our kids. Great job guys!
It is important that we offer events tailored to athletes at every level. You do not get to meets like this one in Orlando without successfully going through the developmental stage. Meets like the one we hosted at BSAC today allows our families to learn and grow in the sport without spending countless hours and days at traditional swim meets. Thanks go out to our coaches and volunteers for making the recreational meet a go.
I am very pleased with how our swimmers are acting at the Orlando meet. The times are great. That’s a given. To me, watching them warm up and warm down properly, eat right and have the right mindset for success means we will be successful for many years to come.
We will warm up at 7:00am for swimmers participating in the 200 Free. Everyone else can come an hour and a half before their first event. If you want a wake up swim, come at 7:00am and come back an hour before your swim.
We are getting stronger with each session. That's what championship teams do. Let’s stay focused and finish strong. The days may be long for the coaches, but we are having a blast. I am excited about tomorrow’s swims. Eat right, get rest and expect success. We will swim fast!
See you at the pool - Rich
