THE BEAR FACTS
Welcome to issue 10.5 of The Bear Facts: a weekly source for all things Keyano.

We will resume all regular newsletter features, such as the head coach and general manager report, next Friday!

Happy New Year everyone!

Bronze

This 3-day camp from Jan 2-4, 2019 is available for any registered swimmers in EKSC Bronze sessions 1 or 2 or 3. There is no extra training fee for this camp. The Bronze camp goal is to spend two 20-minute segments each day on specific stroke technique progressions and another 20-minute segment each day on swimming skills, rules, and a little speed and fun for good measure.  

 

For session 2 and 3 swimmers:

Please note that you must have paid your EKSC registration prior to attending any workout, including the 3-day camp.

Silver

This 3-day camp from Jan 2-4, 2019 is available for any registered swimmers in EKSC Silver. There is no extra training fee for this camp. The Silver camp goal is to spend two 25-minute segments each day on specific stroke technique progressions and another 25-minute segment each day on swimming skills, rules, and a little speed and fun for good measure.

Gold

This 4-day camp from Jan 2-5, 2019 is for any registered swimmers in EKSC Gold. There is no extra training fee for this camp.

 

The Gold camp goal is to spend 20-30 minutes each day on stroke technique progressions, and to provide significant training challenges - providing a great boost towards qualifying and/or competing at the Alberta North Provincials and Alberta Championships in March.

  

Provincial /

Youth Development

This camp spans December 30-31, 2018 and January 2-5, 2019. There is no extra training fee for this camp.  

 

The Provincial and Youth Development groups will train together for this camp (with opportunity for YD swimmers to opt for the Gold camp if that suits their needs). The goal is to periodize the week with technique progressions, kick and pull pulses, and a variety of physiological stimuli centering on the swimmers’ early-cycle needs - providing a great boost towards qualifying and/or competing at the Alberta North Provincials and Alberta Championships in March.

Junior Championship

This camp spans December 28-31, 2018 and January 2-5, 2019. There is no extra training fee for this camp.  

 

The Junior Championship group will follow a standard single-double schedule, with a mid-way break on New Year’s Day. The goal is to challenge the swimmers’ aerobic 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.

Just a few notes about the Bronze programming for the remainder of the season…

Training Schedule
The chart above aims to give everyone a head’s up before the sessions start so you can see when/where we can foresee changes to the regular schedule. We may still have to deal with City of Edmonton facility issues, but those are generally few and far between. “Omit Date” means there will be no training on that date; “Move Date” means that training for your pool is moved to the noted pool; “Make-up” means a practice was added on the given date to balance the number of practices between pools.

Registering for Bronze
Our website is designed in the USA for 1,000’s of swim clubs… And as such, it has some bugs when it comes to doing anything out of the box (like 3x3-month Bronze sessions). Here is what you need to know:
If you haven’t done so already, it is easiest to extend your sign-up to a subsequent session by emailing Brea or the office directly at opsmanager@eksc.com
Colleen will fix anything that happens in error when registering on our website
You will only pay a registration fee and membership deposit once; anything else is a website error and will be corrected.

Dropping the Fee for Session Three
It has a lovely rhyme to it. In short, we have recalculated the fees for Session 3 based on the number of workouts impacted by holidays and PD days and a slightly shorter session overall than we had planned. Rather than extending the swimming session after the school year is done, we have decided to finish the same week as school and reduce the Session 3 cost from $545 to $475.
