Word from Coach Mark

Summer is here!  Just a few reminders for our new and seasoned swimmers.

Getting Started

Start Slowly, and Build

When starting your swimming routine, as with any other physical fitness activity, make sure to consult with your physician. Start slowly, be consistent and build up to increase the limits. Try to keep track of your distance and time in a logbook. Remember, the speed and distance is not as important as the amount of time you swim.

Set realistic goals

Aim for the attainable and you won't get discouraged. There are many ways to set goals in swimming. It could be as simple as learning to do the stroke better or counting your laps. The most important thing is to have fun with it.


Swimming is far more technical than most other activities. Even the best swimmers continue to improve by refining their technique.  When you feel your stroke out of balance, slow down and use a catch-up drill to get your balance and rhythm back.

Lane Etiquette

Make sure you know the pool's rules about how to share a lane with other swimmers. When three or more swimmers are sharing a lane, do "circle-swimming". When you are circle-swimming, you go up on one side of the lane and return on the other. If you are not sure about it, ask the coach, who is there to assist. Watching the traffic patterns is always a good idea before entering a lane with other swimmers.
