This month is a time for transitioning to Long Course season and to get ready for the Summer. UMD will have their finals May 11-15. This means that swim lessons will end on May 9 and NSSC will be able to get into the pool earlier on Mondays and Wednesdays. Please plan on your swimmer being in the water during the " dry land" portion of work outs on Monday and Wednesday starting May 11. Practices will still run on the time schedule posted online. Our first meet is next weekend and there is still time to sign up for the May 31 meet. The next meet after that will be on the weekend of June 13 here in Duluth at the Lincoln Park pool hosted by LSSC. We encourage everyone to plan on being at that meet.
We will start our Summer practice schedule on June 8. Please check the online calendar for times. On Monday, Wednesday and Friday there will be a strength and conditioning program for female swimmers 12 and over and male swimmers 13 and over. This will be a demanding portion of the training and only those swimmers committed to attending as many sessions as possible and putting forth a high level of effort are asked to attend.
We are excited for what is sure to be a highly successful Long Course season and encourage you to see if you can get some more people to join our club. If you have any questions please feel free to contact Coach Patton.
