Hell Week Details

July 16th, 2015 | Posted by kigooswm in Coaches Corner
As Hell Week is fast approaching, we would like to lay out some ground rules so that everyone is on the same page.
Hell Week, or peak week, is the peak of our training intensity. All season, practices have been working up to this week of training where swimmers will be put through a series of grueling practices before we begin the tapering portion of their training in preparation for Regionals. We call it Hell Week because the practices for this week are extremely demanding and will challenge swimmers to go beyond what they think they are capable of.  Swimmers should come to each practice ready to work hard! The harder you work during Hell Week, the happier you will be with your swims at Regionals.
 
All swimmers are required to attend 100% of their Hell Week practices in order to be awarded their group’s Hell Week Prize. There will be absolutely no make-up practices allowed for Hell Week.
