JCC Swimming: Parent Education
Welcome to the Parent Education Section!
While we hope that you find that much of the website is "educational," there is a LOT of information about the sport of swimming that is available. In this section of the website, we present articles that we expect will be of special interest to parents; including information on how to be a "good sports parent."
USA Swimming has created a CD-ROM to help orient new parents, called "Successful Sports Parenting." Our team has several copies of this CD-ROM available at the Owings Mills JCC Aquatics Office. We invite you to check out a copy from our "lending library," and go through the presentations and articles that are available on the disk.
In addition to these resources, there is a "Parents" section on the Maryland Swimming website, and a similar section on the USA Swimming Website. We encourage you to check out the many resources available there as well.
Our team will be using this section of our website to bring you articles that we believe will be of special interest to parents. That doesn't mean that this is "confidential" information; if you find something that will be useful to your swimmer (like information on nutrition, or swimming in college) please feel free to direct your swimmer to these pages.
