Hello all Panthers,
Thanks to all for your amazing support of our high school swimmers as they fought hard in Manila and for the second year in a row brought back a Silver and Bronze team medals for the both boys and girls squads. That makes four straight years of double medals for our teams. This is a great indication of the dedication to training these athletes put forth year in and year out. It is my hopes that our high school swimmers serve as an example for our younger swimmers and help motivate them to achieve their own goals and continue on improving and becoming PB monsters in their own right.
Now as a team let’s use this momentum to carry us right on through to Splash and BISAC in March. Hard work put in now will produce the PBs down the road.
Attention all Jr. Panthers…Jr Panther Swim Time Changes:
Now that we have the same coaches at the 25m pool for Super Jr and Jr Panthers we will be moving the Jr. Panther time slot up by 15mins. So Super Jr. Panthers will still go 2:30-3:30 and Jr. Panthers will now go at 3:30 to 4:30. Friday both will swim from 2:30-3:30. This will start on February 11th.
Special Guests Visiting on February 11th for Swim Camp (England National Team Members):
English National Head Coach Mike Taylor and team members (5 in total) including Richard Nagy (Olympic Games Member and European Championships Medalist) will be visiting ISB to deliver an after school swim camp for our swimmers. There will be two sessions; 2:30-3:30 for 10 and under’s and 3:30 to 5:00 for 11 and over. The National Squad will then do a training session at the 50m pool for us all to watch. If these are not your swim days then please make changes to your schedule this week so you can attend.
Travel meet to Singapore…Need swimmers to commit?
It saddens me to report that at this moment we do not have enough swimmers to travel to the Singapore swim meet. If you are considering it, please let me know. If you are not, then maybe you should.
