Coach Hana would like to give a...

PAC BRW at San Fernando Shark swimmers who participated in the first meet of the 2018 long course season did a great job! They got good experience racing in a 50 meter pool. The swimmers have been going back to basics on swim etiquette. At the beginning of the race, they have been working on when to step up on the blocks. During their swims they either focused on a tight streamline or having a good, fast finish. At the end of the race, they worked on hopping out of the...
