JD Updates from Julia

May 25th, 2015 | Posted by kigooswm in Coaches Corner

Hello all JD groups… It’s been an awesome first couple weeks of the season, and it’s only going to get better! I am so impressed with the progress and technique improvements that everyone has been making, and I’ve really enjoyed getting to know you better, whether you are a swimmer or a parent.

The past two weeks I have been observing our practices and assisting certain groups when necessary, and I have also made some switches within the groups. Those who have been moved to a different group will have received an e-mail, and today (Monday), the new groups will be in effect. Since our JD program is constantly working on new skills and progressing quickly, it is likely that more changes to the groups might occur in the future.

A couple things to keep in mind:

• The Mock Meet is coming up! This Saturday the 30th is our annual Kigoos Mock Meet held at Steveston Pool. I would highly suggest you try to attend as you will gain a better understanding of how a swim meet runs, and it is also a great opportunity to make connections with other parents. Your swimmer will able to swim in a couple events, which is a great idea if you are new to the club as sometimes competing for the first time can be a little nerve-wracking. There is also a yummy breakfast, which I know I am looking forward to. I hope to see you there!

• Please bring running shoes to the 15 minutes of dryland before we get in the water. Since the weather is getting nicer out we would love to be able to do activation and some games in the backfield, but we can only do this if everyone has proper footwear. Thank you!

• Also, please consider wearing sunscreen! We saw some nasty sun burns last year, and hopefully can prevent our swimmers from suffering the uncomfortable feeling of a burn by coming prepared to practice with (waterproof) sunscreen on.

  • Keep up the great work! Parents and swimmers alike, you are doing awesome! I have really enjoyed being able to chat with a number of you, and I’m having a blast working with your swimmers. They are such an energetic bunch, and it’s great seeing how eager they are to swim. As always, if you have any questions or would just like to say hi, please feel free to e-mail me or find me on deck before or after practice.

Thanks a bunch and here’s to another great week!
