For those interested in the Richmond BC Kigoos Summer Swim Club

Update from Head Coach Emmy

August 2nd, 2017 | Posted by kigooswm in Coaches Corner

Hi Kigoos!

This season has flown by and it’s hard to believe Regionals is already this weekend!

I would first like to acknowledge the Intermediate and Senior red swimmers for their hard work over the last two weeks! I am so proud of the training they put in and it was great to see everyone working hard, encouraging their teammates, and pushing themselves to new limits. Congratulations to the green team (senior) and the yellow team (intermediate) for winning the Amazing Race!

With regionals approaching this weekend, we are now in the taper phase of our training cycle. This means we are resting up for the weekend and our focus is on fine-tuning our races with special attention to starts, turns and finishes. Everyone is looking sharp in the pool and I am excited to see all of the work the swimmers have put in over the last fourteen weeks pay off! I am happy to hear many positive comments on the pool deck. I would like to advise everyone to trust their training and enter into the weekend with a confident mind set, as a strong mental attitude is necessary for fast swimming!

Some announcements…

  • We have 64 relays entered and very few alternates. If your swimmer is on a relay please ensure they are available. Relays with less than 8 teams go straight to finals. Please make sure to check the relay teams and check in with your coach before leaving the pool this weekend.
  • If you know you are not planning on attending provincials and think you may be a qualifier, please let me know ASAP.
  • Be safe this week! Rest up, eat well and sleep well!

I can’t wait to see the Kigoos swim fast and have fun this weekend!
