As the weather changes make sure that your swimmer has warm clothing, including a hat to put on as they leave the pool. They lose a lot of heat through their head and they are still warm from working out. Keep that head warm!
NO SENIOR PRACTICE THIS SATURDAY!
Senior Practice on Saturday, Nov 7 is cancelled due to the large number of swimmers either attending the Rays IMX meet or their own high school meets. Any SENIOR group swimmers not swimming in a meet are welcome to attend the GOLD group practice from 11:15 am-12:45 pm. All other practices will be held as usual.
Bronze Group: Max # of practices available was 13- Tyler Godoy and Katelyn Hua attended all 13
Silver Group: Max # of practices available was 17- Ryan Fogel and Avi Daftari attended 15
Gold Group: Max # of practices available was 17- Sonali Iyer attended 16
Senior Group: Max # of practices available was 21- Hannah Drilling attended 19
We keep track of attendance so we can look back at it to see the swimmer's progress and the correlation to the number of practices. We are seeing a huge connection between those swimmers who are at practice consistently and their meet/practice performance. As we move into the hard part of the season ( we will be increasing how much they swim and the intensity) it is important for your swimmer to attend practice regularly. With the holiday season coming up it is really important to get to practice. If you are going out of town and would like help in finding a place for your swimmer to swim, Coach Owen will help with that.
