Thanks to the 21 Sea Dogs who have already sent...

Parents, I am actually going to need to cancel the Zoom meeting for today. I am sorry this is a bit later notice than Matt or I would normally give but I am going to one of our satellite pools today during this time to sign paperwork and get a visual of where the Seniors/Masters will be practicing at! Sorry for the late notice and I hope you have a great rest of your Memorial Day weekend! Thanks! Coach Blake

Sea Dogs Weekly News Week 6 (May 18 - 24) This Week This is the final week of our second three-week dryland cycle. Thanks to all of our athletes who have been working so hard over the past two months - I truly believe those who have approached dryland with enthusiasm and consistency will be stronger and more resilient as a result. Practices Hang in there! We are actively working towards a plan to begin offering swim practices in the near future. I am hoping the coaching staff will be...

Bluefin News May 11 It takes a village to run a great team. And villages are made up of families. And our families have the best moms around! Happy (belated) mothers day! This week won't look fundamentally different than the other weeks. I was contemplating a new dryland regimen, but given our possible proximity to return to live water workouts, we'll stay the current course. More on that below. Spring 202o Tab Full Bluefin workout details under the Spring 2020 tab on the website. In addition to the standard weekly...

This Week I hope with the great Indiana weather we had this past weekend that all of my Stingrays got out and had some fun in the yard, got on a bike for a ride, or went out for a walk! Any way you got out this weekend and hopefully during the sunny times this week I hope you are getting out there to be healthy! This week I would love for you all to think of 2 things you can do a great job at and work on them!...

Sea Dogs Weekly News Week 4 (May 4 - 10) This Week This week, we are beginning our second three-week dryland cycle. Athletes, please work at being consistent with these workouts - they build on each other and include a testing component, so my hope is that will add a level of personal challenge for each of you. Great work so far, those I have talked to are working hard and it's awesome to see our Sea Dogs taking ownership of what they can control during this time. A few...

Bluefin News May 4 Hope you had a great weekend and enjoyed some great Indiana spring weather! This week's plan is similar to last week with the addition of a live workout that I hope you all will join. Details on that below. Otherwise I really want you to focus on being healthy, setting a few weekly goals, and finding a new learning source (book, journal, documentary). Spring 202o Tab As I noted last week, all workout plans have migrated to their own location on the website, simply labeled Spring...

Sea Dogs Weekly News Week 3 (April 27 - May 3) This Week This is the final week of our first three-week dryland cycle. In speaking with our athletes last week during PAC meetings and our team Zoom, it sounds like these workouts are going smoothly. I strongly encourage all Sea Dogs to make these workouts a part of their normal daily routine. That being said, feel free to make modifications to incorporate other activities. A few examples from these conversations: Long bike rides with family - if you go...
