ANTICIPATION Well, we are getting closer to a start date for practice. We are anticipating June 8th, but it is not set in stone. With that, comes many challenges for practice. The County Health Department will only let us have 1 person per lane, except siblings may be in the same lane. So this presents a very difficult challenge as to how to get swimmers in the pool. We have also been given hours of 7-9:55am. We have worked on a plan to restart our practices, hopefully on June 8th....

POSITIVE QUOTES I hope everyone is doing well in this very long, extended stay at home. I know that it is hard, especially now that the weather is nicer. We can take advantage of the nice weather now and exercise outside more than before. Please, stay safe, stay healthy and stay home.

CAN’T How many times do you say “Can’t”? To most people, it is a very prominent word in our vocabulary. When we have swim practice, I hear Coach Al saying that “can’t” is a dirty word.

Can’t is a terrible word and it needs to be taken out of your vocabulary. When someone says, “I can’t do it”...

Most of us have experienced loss that goes beyond the field or court. In the aftermath of her husband's death, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg thought she would never again experience joy. The...
