Welcome to COOGS Online!
Our goal as a staff is to provide our athletes with every opportunity to stay engaged with the sport of swimming both physically and mentally. While we cannot gather in the traditional sense of the word, the COOGS Family has come together here to help with numerous resources to keep our athletes and their families healthy, happy, and engaged.
Please use this landing page and sub-tabs in this section to navigate our virtual resources while we are out of the pool.
Our Coaching Staff has added resources for all our at-home Dryland needs. Again, while we cannot work out together physically, we will offer optional ZOOM Drylands where swimmers can still feel part of a team, see & socialize with their friends, & workout!
Handouts for Drylands, Stretches, & Yoga, etc. will be added to the page along with the ZOOM information for the Virtual Dryland Classes, as well as providing some new Webinars for both Parents & Athletes
COOGS will continue adding Webinars for both Parents & Athletes, like the Fitter & Faster ones we have already offered, as well as some new ones from CG Sports Management University, USA Swimming, and other Online Webinar Resources.
Look for these Topics: (More are being added every day!)
- Warm Up/Down
- Race Strategy
- Balancing School & Work (Swimming)
- Relaxation & Visualization Drills
Coach Greg & Coach Clay are currently working on putting together some live Webinars using our ZOOM account. They are working with Gulf Swimming to secure a ZOOM Meeting with an Olympic Athlete. Chuck Warner & Dana Abbott, authors of “Eddie Reese: Coaching Swimming, Teaching Life”, have agreed to a ZOOM Meeting Read-a-loud followed by a Q&A – Time & Date TBD.
It’s not all work and no play here at COOGS, so your Coaching Staff has a few fun Games that you will start getting more information on including:
- Tournament of Champions – 5 Events (1 each week) selected and scored by our Coaching Staff (Cooking Contest, ZOOM Dryland Challenge, Best Short Course
Story, Best Team Skit & Best Written Workout)
- Online Game Night – Jeopardy, Catchphrase, etc.
- At Home Scavenger Hunt – Find items, collect points, highest score wins!
Our swimmers have done a fantastic job with their Group Goal Meetings and working on their Individual Goals. Look to this page for all Goal Meeting information which will be updated constantly.
