Dear Parents, Please remind your swimmers to come and talk to their coach before and immediately after their race. Swimmers should make it down to the coach about 10  min prior to their race. Also please, refrain from coaching your child. Your job is to love and support and help the athlete learn from the experience,  not coach! This is a good article to help remind you of this.    Thanks, Tay Stratton NEWS FOR SWIM PARENTS =====================================================================   Pre and Post Race Conversations with The Athlete by John Leonard...
