Swimmers of the Month - April

Coaches recognize swimmers monthly based on one or more of the following categories: Participation and Effort, Passion, Leadership, and Achievement.  

Ava Speelman, Senior Group 2
Coach Perchinske
Ava is returning to us after multiple surgeries over the course of the past year.  However, she is determined not to let this setback stop her from achieving.  She approaches every practice, set, and exercise with intense focus and unmitigated will.  She is the embodiment of true grit and a shining example for all! 

Noah Beaver, Age Group 3

Coach Kevin
Congratulations to the April Age Group 2&3 Swimmer of Month, Noah Beaver.  Noah has been a leader both in and out of the pool.  He has been a demonstrator and guide for the new swimmers to the group with regards to dryland.  He also leads by example in the water with his work ethic and focus and intensity.  Great job Noah.

Kaylee May, Developmental 3

Coach Chris 
Kaylee has focused even more on her swimming endurance, she has been leading a lane for Dev3, and she has exhibited an even higher level of passion for swimming which is showing in her dryland and in water practice efforts. 
Mathew Pavlov, Developmental 2 Coach Doug
Matt is taking initiative to be a lane leader, he has been improving his freestyle and backstroke by instituting coaches suggestions, and he has been challenging himself to lead Dev2 and race against Dev3 in adjoining lanes. 
Mac Lane, Developmental 1b
Coach Cassidy
Mac comes to practice every day ready to rock.  He has been working very hard on his stroke technique.  He is a leader in his lane and in the group. We are proud of his work ethic!
Roman Yazhbin, Developmental 1a Coach Taylor

Roman has been coming to practice with a great attitude.  He is always asking what he can do better. He has been improving each week and trying his best!

Logan Harris, Pre-Competitive Coach Alexis Logan comes to practice ready to go and eager to swim!  He has a strong work ethic and is always ready to face whatever challenge we throw at him! When provided with a critique on his stroke, Logan will immediately focus on improving that aspect of his technique to improve his overall swimming capabilities!  He is very coachable and always comes to practice with laser focus!
