Senior I&II Update

 


 

Tuesday, December 3rd

 

Great to have all the ladies back training in the pool! Hope everyone had a great break following the high school season and Thanksgiving! Reminder:  We are all coming together under ONE TEAM (EBSC). All SI&II swimmers are required to wear EBSC caps & generic suits at workouts. Save your high school outfitting for the next high school season.

 

Equipment – We have some faulty equipment at practices. If you have a moldy snorkel get that thing cleaned up, if you have a paddles with broken straps get those replaced, if you have a tempo trainer with a dead battery replace it, if you have ripped flippers…well you get the picture.

 

Swim A Long – Saturday, December 7th BEHS 7:00-8:30 am. Huge thanks for those who have been active raising money for this fundraiser. If you have not started best get going!! On Saturday the group will stretch out and swim a 1 hour challenge. Have fun with the event! There will be refreshments following.

 

MAAPP – Reminder to Senior I&II swimmers:  All texts to coaching staff must have a parent included. I am not allowed to communicate via text with you without a parent included in the conversation. Send a text without a parent included = don’t expect a response.

 

I will be flying out with the US Open crew Wednesday morning and returning Sunday afternoon. I hope to be back in time to see the later events race at the Rocket Aquatics competition. Coach Tiltmann will be the guiding hand while I am in Atlanta. The group couldn’t be in better hands!

 

US Open - Michel Linnihan, Emilio Perez, Kaylyn Schoof, Reilly Tiltmann, Lucy Thomas, Abigail Wanezek, & Margaret Wanezek will be racing against to best in the USA & More at the 2019 US Open in Atlanta Georgia this weekend. This is an exceptionally fast competition with a big professional, collegiate, and 18&U field. Should be a fun weekend of racing for this crew!

 

Rocket Aquatics – The rest of the team will be racing on Sunday at Rocket Aquatics (formerly known as MFSC). Note that this meet is at Menomonee Falls High School. Team stretch 11:15 – Warm up 11:30 – Meet Start 12:30 – Meet Finish 4:00 (200 Fly) – Meet Finish 6:00 (1650). There will be relays and all swimmers will be expected to stay for all events. Those in the 1650 need to take advantage of this rare opportunity to swim this event. We won’t be seeing another mile offered until championship season in late February/March.

 

Girls Captains/Representatives – The girls will be voting in representatives for each Pre-High School – High School Senior in late December. The Senior representative will serve as the Senior Team Captain.

 

Goal Setting – many have already shared goals with me. We will embark on our formal goal setting in late December. If you are not sure about goals, please talk to me.

 

Training – After this weekend we are in our major training block of the season. We don’t race a lot in December & January and consider this to be a “woodshedding” period where we are putting the work in for fast racing later.

Wednesday, November 27th

Good to have the girls back at full strength this week with everyone returning for the High School programs! It is readily apparent that this is a motivated group looking to push each other to highest heights possible. Let’s go, should be a fantastic short course season for this group. Best of luck to the High school boys who have shipped off to the Barracuda program, working together you can do great things!

Turkey Relays were a blast as usual! Thanks to the Senior swimmers for bringing non-perishable items for Coach Carissa’s School, these will be put to good use.

The Swim A Long fundraiser is quickly approaching and is a mandatory event. The hour swim will be our SI&II workout on Saturday, December 7th. All swimmers are required to raise funds and attend.

We have USA Swimming National Championships (US Open) on the horizon. Micheal Linnihan, Emilio Perez, Kaylynn Schoof, Lucy Thomas, Reilly Tiltmann, Abigail Wanezek, & Margaret Wanezek will be competing at the USA Swimming US Open in Atlanta, Georgia next week racing against the best in the nation!

For those out of town for the Thankgiving weekend, remember you are athlete 24/7. Stay active, go for a hike, ride a bike, etc. You will be much better for it when you return on Monday! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
