Raymond Snyder IV

Dear Super Bronze/Super Squad Families,

 

            Welcome to the 2021-2022 Wilton Wahoos Fall/Winter Swim Season! The Wahoo coaching staff is ready to get back to work and looking forward to a season full of fun with our returning members and of course our new faces of the team!

 

Practice Changes: IMPORTANT!

 

  • Saturday (9/11) will be in the Indoor 25-yard pool from 10:00-11:00AM
    • There will be a Motorcycle Parade traveling down Route 7 in Wilton from 11:45-12:30. The road will be CLOSED, which will impact pick-up for Super Squad Super Bronze Practice
  • Practice will return as scheduled next weekend, Saturday (9/18) 

 

Reminders: 

  1. Be sure to get the equipment for your specific group
    1. Super Bronze--> Short blade speedo fins and kickboard (optional)
    2. Super Squad-->Short blade speedo fins, speedo training snorkel, and kick board (optional)
    3. We will not use fins or snorkels until the 3rd week of practice in order to give all swimmers time to receive their gear
  2. Be on the lookout for a Coaches/Parent zoom meeting to introduce the coaches, along with answer any questions you may have for us. 

 

Practice Updates:

  • For the first week, Super Bronze and Super Squad will be working on freestyle technique, drills, and kick. We will also be going over rules of practice, practice etiquette, and basics of reading the pace clock. 

 

If anyone has any questions, comments, or concerns. Please, feel free to reach out to Coach Eric or I at any time!

 

Enjoy!

Coach Ray
