Novice 2 Update Page 

This week we have returned to working on breaststroke. I am pleased with the progress that we have been making in the pool, particularly the time drops that we are seeing at meets. Jordynn will be getting in the pool at least once a week moving forward so that we can provide more one-on-one feedback to each of the swimmers. Please try and attend Wednesday practices to benefit from this additional technique work.

The Swim-A-Long fundraiser is around the corner. This is a mandatory fundraiser for the club. More information can be found HERE.

Weekly Focus

This week we have been working on freestyle and backstroke again. I am really pleased with the progress that we have made with each of the athletes? comfort in the water. It is clear they are understanding how their body position affects their movement through the water. Learning this at a young age is key to success in the future and provides us a foundation to build off of for the other stroke.

Halloween Bowling

I hope to see all of you at Halloween bowling on Saturday morning!

When?               

Saturday, October 27th

TIME - 11:00 am to 12:30 pm

Pool Deck Safety

As a reminder, we kindly ask that you refrain from coming onto the pool deck before/during/after practice. We?ve had a few athletes slip and fall, and we don?t want that occurring with parents. USA Swimming requires us, pursuant to our insurance, to enforce this as strictly as possible. Thank you for your cooperation!

Coaching/Parenting

If you have questions about what we are doing with respect to coaching, please don?t hesitate to reach out. It is important that the coaches coach and the parents parent. We appreciate bifurcating those roles so the athletes are getting a consistent message with respect to their swimming skills!

The reminders below apply to meets. We appreciate that the majority of families complied with these requests, and appreciate you keeping them in mind for future competitions.

?      Warm ups ?

o   If an athlete doesn?t show up for warm up, and we do not receive notification via email, text, or phone regarding the absence, the athlete will be removed from all relays and may be liable for paying for the entire relay if we cannot find an alternate athlete.

Thanks,
