Teaching Tuesday: Starting the Season Strong

The new short course season is already underway, but it is still early, so we wanted to share some beginning of the season tips for our Georgia athletes and parents. It is important that at the beginning of a new season that swimmers establish their goals, work hard, and eat well--balanced meals. 

Here are some tips for parents and swimmers to keep in mind at the beginning of the new season:

  • Develop a great routine of habits early on so that these habits become second nature 
  • Make sure to get plenty of sleep
  • Allow yourself time for recovery
  • Eat plenty of nutrients and well-balanced meals early on
  • Keep a positive attitude with your teammates and surround yourself with supportive friends
  • Work on technique and any weaker elements of your strokes
  • Focus on the details: turns, push-offs, starts, etc
