Head Coach Report - February 2021


Hello everyone,
Much like everyone who's reading this note, I am looking forward to having our swimmers back in the pool in the near future. With the current situation stabilizing, we are vigorously planning for a safe return to training with our facility partners. The Swim Ontario Coaches Committee (which I seat on) is also meeting regularly to discuss racing opportunities for all swimmers once the government allows the pools to reopen. Our Return to Training protocols are already in place and we are just waiting for the ‘Go’.
If you ever read some of my notes regarding goal settings, you probably remember that writing them down is the key to success. It allows you to boost your motivation, track your progress and hold yourself accountable. During this downtime, this is exactly what the board and myself have been doing. We are currently finalizing our 4-year strategic plan to help us achieve our goals as a club in and out of the pool (performances, culture and structure). It is a long process, but will help our staff and volunteers focus on improving our club while fulfilling our mission. Once reviewed and approved, a one-page version will be shared with you all!
In the meantime, stay safe, stay fit, stay healthy! (and enjoy the sleep ins..!)
See you (hopefully) soon,
Olivier Renaud
