Hello Junior Bs…
Congratulations on a great season! You did it! We have come so far since the beginning of May and I am very proud of all of you. I had an enjoyable time coaching and getting to know each and every one of you, so I am very happy with how our summer went and I hope you are too! Lots of time was taken off in our races, and all of our strokes and technique has improved A LOT. We even managed to have a little fun too ;) Some of us were even starting to make finals in swim meets, and we also have two provincial qualifiers which is awesome! Thank you for the gifts I received as well. I will see your smiling faces at the final banquet held at the beginning of fall, so for now enjoy the rest of your summer, and thanks again for a blast of a season!
I cannot believe that Regionals has come and gone! For many of you the swim season has come to an end, so I would like to congratulate all of you on an excellent summer! You were a wonderful group to coach. We had a lot of fun together and everyone’s swimming has improved tremendously, which to me is a goal well achieved.
To those of you not continuing on to provincials, I hope that the rest of your summer is spent relaxing. Remember to keep yourself active throughout the year, whether it be through Tsumani or by means of other sports!
To my Tater Tots,
Way to go guys! You were a fantastic group of up and coming swimmers. I cannot believe how much you all improved. Many of you could not put your head under water on day 1, and by our last lesson you were swimming like fish! I hope that you all keep swimming, and that many of you will be ready to go for JD, or more Tater Tots next summer!
A special thank you is due to Coach Elizabeth and Coach Roselyn who are brand-new to the coaching scene. These girls did a great job of helping the Tater Tots with their swimming!
I hope to see all of you- Senior Bs and Tater Tots at the End of Year Picnic on Wednesday August 6, at 6pm in the field behind the pool!
Hi Intermediate B’s,
I hope you had a wonderful season with me this summer. Everyone has worked extremely hard since May and I am very fortunate to have the opportunity to coach you. I am very happy that all of you have achieved best times. Remember that the strongest opponent in swimming is always your own time, so you should be proud of your achievements. Again, it is my pleasure to coach you this season. I hope that you will always remember our 5 keywords because swimming fast requires your strokes to be Efficient, and you do so with a tight Streamline, kicking off the Walls as hard as you can, doing your Underwater dolphin kick and having a strong Breakout (S.W.U.B). Doing these once is not enough, you must beConsistent whenever you swim! Remember that the nature of your strokes must also be Powerful and with high Intensity! The most important keyword though is Confidence. No matter when or where you are swimming, I hope you will always swim with Confidence because through practice, you can always improve your technique and reach limitless goals.
I hope to see all of you again at the Awards Banquet in September/October!
Thank you Int B Swimmers and Parents,
