The coaches saw that this group of swimmers were understanding that preparation is one of the keys that will help them achieve their goals. They responded well with feedback both before and after races. Which resulted in better focus on technique and little adjustments to their race plans throughout the weekend, Lauren and I had fun helping and watching the swimmers race.


Have a Safe and Merry Christmas!
