First off, thank you to those who woke up bright and early for morning practices!
This past week we have done lots of long distance sets, 100m freestyle, 100 IM and long kick sets. The endurance skills you are building will improve your breathing patterns. Keep up the great work JD Silvers I can see that it has already paid off because already our endurance has really picked up!
Reminder: Cash in your Kigoo bucks every Friday afternoon practice
We are going to be practicing lots of dive 25 sprints.
We will be using the IPad this week to switch things up. It will mainly be used to focus on correcting dives, turns, and underwater pullouts. Expect to be doing lots of breastroke corrections this week!
See you at the first JD Meet today!
I have entered 20 medley relays and 20 freestyle relays. If you’d like to swim a relay with your friends, parents, siblings, etc., please talk to me at the pool or email me your relays (with the names of the relay members, and whether it will be a free or medley relay) and your estimate time by Thursday at 5pm. If you and your team want to do both a medley and a free, give me your first preference, and if there is space left for your team to do a second relay I will let you know.
*note: parents wanting to swim on a relay must be registered with the club already.
Get your relays in soon!
Hi Sr. Bs,
Now that weekend meets are in full swing, it is more important than ever that you are attending as many practices as you can, getting good sleeps, and hydrating.
I think that the Ice Breaker was good for you guys to get a feel for where you stand compared to your competition. Now that you have a starting point, we can start to focus on specific races and times that you want to improve upon.
As a group we seem to be having some stamina troubles in the 100m and 200m races. This week we will be focusing on longer distances in order to shave time off the second half of our 100m free, fly, back, breast, and 200 IM races.
I believe that two swimmers of the week are in order seeing as I am a bit behind with my blog posts.
The first is Sophia K. Soph has been practicing with intensity in recent weeks and it has been paying off in her races. Her consistently positive and inclusive attitude makes her a valuable team member and keeps Senior B ‘spicy’, as some would say.
Next is Brian C. Brian has shaved off minutes in time over the past two meets- very impressive! He has also exemplified good spirit by always trying his best in his races regardless of whether he was having a good or bad day.
Way to go guys! Stay posted for information about the upcoming club movie night!
