Silver Summer Coaching Staff

Due to some coaching changes and schedule conflicts, we have had to adjust the coaching schedules for the Silver 1 & 2 groups. An impromptu meeting was held with Silver parents at practice this morning to explain some of the changes.  Please, if you have a question or concern, address me directly.  Here are the coaching assignments for the remainder of the summer:

Mondays 5-6:30 Coach Denise
Tuesdays & Thursdays - small groups - Coach Angie
Tuesday, Thursday & Friday long course and Wednesdays 5-6:30  - Coach Laurie

I am very excited to have the opportunity to work with our younger swimmers this summer!  Here are some of the tidbits that I passed along to the parents this morning:

  • While it has been a few years, I do have loads of experience working with younger swimmers.  Please be patient while I resurrect my 10 & under mojo :)  I need to rework my communication skills a bit for the group and am working hard on pulling up my old skill set there.
  • If you feel that I am not communicating well with your child, please do not hesitate to let me know.  
  • I would like you to send your children to me 5-10 minutes before practice starts (even if it appears that I am busy with another group). This gives me an opportunity to talk to them, get to know them outside of the pool, and put my 10 & under hat on for the day. 
  • I have planned the next 5 weeks of training for the kids and will be coordinating closely with Denise and Angie on their development.
Unfortunately, Coach JJ has handed in his resignation to seek other opportunities.  We did not want to see Coach JJ go and will miss him.

I have already begun to interview coaches inside and outside of the club for the position of Head Silver Coach beginning this fall.
