Congratulations to our Swimmers of the Meet from our November Meets!  We recognize one girl and one boy swimmer of the meet based on time drops, attitude and the work the swimmer put in leading up to the meet.  At our first two meets our swimmers that achieved this honor all trained with us this summer and were consistent this fall in their efforts to improve.

Chase went 8 for 8 in best times and completed his first 100 IM & 200 free.  He had 3 third place finishes and a win in the 25 back.  Chase has worked hard to improve his stroke length which has really helped him in all of his races. Congrats Chase!
Macey also went 8 for 8 in best times and started the meet with a stellar 200 IM, dropping 7 seconds and finishing 2nd.  Macey has been working hard at improving her timing in her strokes and ability to use streamlining to her advantage.  She proves over and over that technique beats brawn any day.  Congrats Macey!

Coach of the Year

Dear Coach, Hope this email finds you well and enjoying the summer. We are writing today on behalf of the upcoming feature film COACH OF THE YEAR: an independent, kid-friendly sports comedy feature film based on the inspiring true story of a rag tag swim team that tries to win a state championship…without a pool to practice in. Director Dave Stott, who has coached swimming for twenty years, hopes that with this film, we will entertain and inspire kids all over the country to learn to swim. Another goal of this film is to raise awareness about drowning as the leading cause of accidental deaths and to help kids all over the country learn to swim safely. The underdog story has been told before, but not for our sport. This is a movie for swimmers (and would-be swimmers), made by people who know the sport intimately and love it passionately, and we’d love for you to be involved. We wanted to ask you and your team to help spread the word about COACH OF THE YEAR, and get you & you

Is my child ready to swim meets?

We had a coaches discussion on this  - and yes, all of our Elite group swimmers are ready for meets.  Please look at the meet calendar and sign up for the days that you are available.  We will pick events that are appropriate for your swimmer.  We pick events that your child can do well and will build their confidence.  We also believe strongly in placing your child in events that will challenge them.  While we strive for excellence, making a mistake in an event is OK and can be a great learning experience.  Trying and failing is teaches a lot more  about your abilities than not trying at all.
