Volunteer Thank You!!

A huge thank you to all families who helped out at both Candy Cane and the Winter Festival last weekend. It was a big and busy weekend, and we were extremely short at most sessions, but many families stepped up into new roles and went above and beyond for us. We are most appreciative; because of you, the meet ran smoothly and was a big success, and there was some truly fun and fast racing all weekend!  Thank you all.

Head Coach Message

Well we are coming towards the competitive end of the pre-season. Already our Bronze/Silver/Gold/Provincial groups have competed at the Winter Festival this last weekend. It was fantastic to see so many Keyano juniors already qualified for this meet and performing so well. The Winter Festival is a relatively new meet for Alberta. The goal of the meet is to provide a ‘championship’ type feel for our youngest swimmers without making the experience to overwhelming and time consuming for parents. This meet is one of the few chances for our juniors to experience the heats/finals format of racing which is invaluable experience to have as they progress through the ranks.

 

One of the critical skills that an elite swimmer has to learn is how to navigate heat swims. If you ask most Olympians they will all agree that getting through prelims into the finals is almost more nerve wracking than the actual final. At the world level there are very few athletes that can coast in prelims and still expect to make finals. For the vast majority of athletes their main event is the heat and they have to fight to make the final. This is a skill in itself. A big challenge of the heat swim is getting your body and mind ready to go fast in the morning. The majority of swimmers train their main sessions in the afternoon when their bodies are warm and mind’s are alert – a luxury we don’t have for a heat swim in the morning.

 

Another difficulty in getting the body ready to go fast in the morning is related to mindset. Too often young swimmers who are comfortably assured to make finals at junior meets will cruise morning swims. This soon becomes a habit and when they are forced into a position where they have to swim fast in the morning (for example their first nationals) they struggle. It’s not because they aren’t physically prepared, well conditioned and technically savvy. It is because they are simply in the habit of plodding along in heats.

 

One of the big focuses over the next few heat/finals format meets will be for the swimmers to start to learn to swim fast in the morning as well as at night! This is what they will need to have to do if they want to succeed at the international level.

 

For all those competing at the major meets for December – Christmas Cracker,JP Fiset, Cascade Age Group Challenge – we all wish you the best and we know you will fight hard for Keyano!

 

Go Bears!

obic energy pathways, while providing technical progression and refinement in a variety of paces and drill-work. Kicking, pulling and multi-stroke swimming are all targets to provide an important boost towards competing at Alberta Provincials and qualifying/competing at Western Canadian Championships and Canadian Trials.

iNational

This camp spans December 27, 2018 – January 7, 2019 and takes place with the Woodlands Swim Club of Houston, Texas. Costs for this camp will be charged separately as a swimming event.

 

There will be a camp meeting on Wednesday, December 12th, from 4:45-5:15pm. This will include the presence of a notary to notarize your parental permission letters for under-age travel.



 

Swim Meet Recap!

Winter Festival North: 

24 swimmers competed in the first Alberta swim North Festival on the weekend. This two day competition is a new event aimed to have some of the top 10&girls and 11&boys compete in a provincial hosted competition. There were finals in two events in the 50 free and 50 backstroke where we saw every Keyano swimmer get make at least 1 of the 2 finals. The last events of each day were the 4x25 relays, by gender and mixed. This was an extremely fun event for our swimmers as they got to compete with swimmers from different pool and race in their first relay as a team.

Below is a list of all swimmers who competed at the Winter Festival North!:

Candy Cane Classic:

102 swimmers competed in the 3 day Candy Cane Meet at the Kinsmen. This is a meet that has been growing every season with the buzz of the fun meet format and the desire to race our Keyano swimmers. We saw an increase of 5 teams this season compared to last season. Our first day was the 50's of each stroke. This exciting new event was a competition to find out who is the most well rounded swimmers by adding up the times of all four 50's. Winners won a toque which they will be showing off all weekend. Congratulations to our winners: Aleckis Eguia, Claire Qui and Aylar Ghasemzadeh 

The Candy Cane meet format was a great experience for our swimmers to race learn how to swim fast in the morning and qualify for many finals races. Some swimmers raced as many as 5x in the night session including relays. Although this won't be a norm at bigger competitions, it is important for swimmers to handle the stress of racing multiple events and follow a routine of swimming down and energizing before each race. The Keyano swimmers handed multiple races very well. 

Thanks to all the volunteers who made this event happen. This is turning into one of the premier short course events in Alberta and the volunteers are what makes a competition like Candy Cane a fun and fast meet experience for all our swimmers.

Science Rules!

From head coach Paul:
 

Mobility and Flexibility – What’s the difference?

Mobility and Flexibility are two terms you hear used frequently, and often at the same time. Both are very important, but they are two very different concepts. Mobility is the new term that gets thrown around a lot, but with very little understanding of what it actually is...

Flexibility is the ability to take a joint through a range of motion passively. For example, if someone takes you through a hamstring stretch whilst you are lying on your back, it is a test of your hamstring flexibility. They are passively assisting you in taking your joint through its range of motion.

Mobility is similar to flexibility in that it involves range of motion at a joint, however it is classed as active because you are doing the work yourself. For example, legs swing front on are a good test of hamstring mobility. You have to contract your muscles yourself and take your joint through its range of motion actively, as opposed to passively. However, you are still testing how ‘far’ your hamstring can go.

Both are really quite important and neither is better than the other. Often they will complement each other, but it is when you should perform flexibility or mobility that is the important factor. This is also where most people make mistakes.

When Should I Do Flexibility Training?

The biggest thing people need to know is when NOT to do flexibility training.

Passive stretching before your workout is not a good idea. When you passively stretch your muscles you are relaxing them. Consequently you are also relaxing your nervous system. When you relax your muscles and nervous system you are inhibiting their ability to produce strength and power by weakening the signal between them. It’s important that both your muscles and nervous system are firing during a training session or competition. You will reduce your risk of injury, and you will have a better performance outcome.

On the other hand, the reasons why passive stretching is so bad before a workout, is exactly the reason why it is great to do after a workout. After a workout your muscles and nervous system are all fired up, and you want them to relax. Relaxing your muscles will get them in an optimal state to enhance recovery. It’s also a great time to do some work on your flexibility, as warm muscles are much more conducive to flexibility training and you will get better results.

When Should I Do Mobility Training?

Mobility training is a perfect warm-up. It has the exact opposite effects on your body when compared to passive stretching. It enhances your neural drive, warms up your muscles more efficiently and gets your joints ready for exercise. When you warm up by moving your joints and muscles through a range of motion actively, you are stimulating your nervous system and enhancing the signal between it and the muscles. This in turn, leads to a better power and strength output, greater joint range of motion, and overall a much more efficient performance. You also get the synovial fluid (fluid in your joints that helps cushions and lubricate) going in your joints, greatly reducing joint friction.

So...?

Flexibility is important, and it’s definitely not all bad. We need to have a passive range of motion through our joints in order to be able to have the active range. If you perform mobility before exercise, you are going to enhance your performance output, and reduce the risk of soft tissue injuries and ongoing joint problems. If you stretch after your workout, you will relax your muscles and nervous system and get them ready to recover for the next session. Both are important, you just need to know when to use them.

Swim Meet Sign-Up

November Swimmer's of the Month!

Every month, each coach will select a swimmer of the month, which will be announced during the first Wednesday practice of the following month! The Swimmer's of the month are selected based on a variety of criteria, including attendance, hard work and attitude.
