Message from Neil and Nicole

I know this letter is a much earlier then in the past, but with the season going on longer and SUMMER meet sign ups early...we need to start things off for the summer.  Their are a lot of decisions that need to be made......as well as meets to sign up for soon.
First off, please talk to your kids about the winter season.  A lot of good things have happened this winter....and, as always, there are areas that we can improve on.  How was their season?  How was their behavior? How was their attendance?  Are they meeting the recommended number of practices each week?  How was their attitude?  Are they fully committed to being the best swimmer they can be?  Will they be able to fully commit to USA swimming beginning April 21st?  
  
If they can.....please respond to this email ASAP to show that your child is committed to the summer....committed to working to be the best that they can be. Again, there are a lot of decisions to be made for the summer season.........this is the first of many.

PLEASE RESPOND BY TUESDAY MARCH 17TH. 

Practices are tentatively scheduled to start on Tuesday April 21st.

A MUCH MORE DETAILED EMAIL WILL FOLLOW SOON AFTER THE SIGN UP DATE- MARCH 17.  AT THIS POINT ALL MEETS AND MEET ANNOUNCEMENTS WILL BE PASSED ALONG WITH SIGN UPS TO BE COMPLETE BY MARCH 24TH.  NICOLE AND I WILL GLADLY HELP WITH MEET SIGN UPS PRIOR TO OR DURING THIS MEETING.

Sign Up for Stroke Clinic

Developmental:
The developmental level is our traditional stroke clinic where swimmers
will focus on each stroke one by one and learn new drills to help them
improve in that stroke. Each week there will be a focus on the details of
that stroke, the start, the finish and turns that go with that stroke will be
worked on. Different techniques will be focused on each night, so it is best
to make your best effort to attend every practice. The ultimate goal of the
clinic is to help swimmers improve stroke technique and teach drills that
will enable the continued refinement of each of the strokes.
Refinement:
Coach approval needed for this level. Swimmers at this level have a
strong foundation in their four strokes and will continue to build their
endurance to further improve. The Refinement stroke clinic is for older
swimmers or swimmers that have a pretty good handle on all of the
strokes. Work will be done on fine-tuning strokes, turns, starts and
finishes.
