Hi JD Blue swimmers and parents,
My name is Erika and I am very excited to be coaching JD Blue this summer! I have been swimming with Kigoos for the past 11 years, and this will be my second year coaching.
This season we will cover the basics of all 4 strokes, as well as learn turns and dives. My hope is that everyone comes to at least 4 practices a week, but the more you can make the faster you can improve! As the season progresses, I want everyone to try to make it to a few JD meets, as they are a great place to practice races, and everything we’ve learned in practice.
This week we have been working on the basics of freestyle, remembering to kick with straight legs, and roll to side glide position to breathe. Next week we will be focusing on the basics of backstroke, and flip turns.
If you have any questions, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or find me at the pool before and after practice.
Looking forward to a great season,
