Words from Coach Mark


"All things are difficult before they are easy" Thomas Fuller


Swimmers of all levels, abilities, and ages who consistently demonstrate a positive "confidence attitude" share three common traits:


Belief, Desire, and Persistence

1. They believe it's possible to improve their fitness.

2. They have a genuine desire to improve their fitness.

3. They are persistent in improving their fitness.

Ask yourself –

Do you possess an 'achievement attitude'?

Do you believe in your ability to accomplish your goals?

If so, what can you do this year to reinforce it?

If not, what's stopping you from applying yourself to commit and transform those obstacles to opportunities?

Challenge... Achievement... Recognition...
