Training

 

The group has had a solid block of training this past week. I am encouraged by the support among teammates each practice session. Pushing and encouraging teammates to be the best they can be continues to be touchstone of the success of the group. The group has responded well to the January addition of morning practices and an increase in intensity. I appreciate the effort! Your teammates appreciate the effort!

 

Exams

 

Exams will be in full effect over the next week. We have the weekend off aside from a short Saturday morning practice. Plan accordingly and take advantage of the weekend to get some quality studying in. Budgeting your time to include academics and athletics is a key skill. It is possible to do both and excel in both areas. It does take effort and planning. Excellence in the classroom and the pool deck is a hallmark of the Elmbrook athlete.

February Competitions

 

SST – February 4th – 7th

 

All qualifiers have been entered. There are some minor changes to the format limiting swimmers to 2 events per day. Also bonus events MAY be offered.
