Hey Jr. Reds!
Welcome to Kigoos 2017!
For those who might not know, my name is Coach Jacob Lee. This is my 11th year as a Kigoo and 4th year coaching. My most recent swimming accomplishment would have to be winning a Gold Medal at High School Provincials in 50 Free this year.
Enough about me, let’s look at the season ahead. My two main ideas about swimming this summer are:
1. Technique before strength. I want our swimming technique to be as good as possible before we start ramping up the distance we swim and the speed we are swimming at.
2. There is another Jr. Red group out there, somewhere in the region or the province working hard every practice. So we must work hard to train hard and swim faster than they do.
You should all have your ‘Coach Jacob’s Ten Tips for Swimming Success’ put them in your rooms up on a wall, or somewhere you can see them before you leave for practice. These are so important if we really want to get the most out of each and every practice. You should all have filled out your Goal Sheets. If you don’t have one yet, can’t find your best times or don’t just haven’t returned it to me. Come see me at practice ASAP.
If your parents have any questions or concerns about anything in regards to swimming, training or Kigoos events please come and see me after any afternoon practice!
I look forward to an amazing season and being the top group in the province!
