Intermediate White Update from Coach Hailey

May 6th, 2019 | Posted by kigooswm in Coaches Corner


Hi Intermediate Whites!

My name is Hailey Dong and I am super excited to be coaching Intermediate White again this season. I have been a swimmer with Kigoos for ten years and this will be my fourth year as a coach. From this first week of practice, I can already tell that this group is very hardworking and we will have a great season together!

This past week we worked on the basics of swimming like streamlines, push-offs and flutter kicking and have also started working on some freestyle. This week, we will continue to practice the fundamentals as well as work more on freestyle and start practicing backstroke. Try to come to as many practices as you can these upcoming weeks as reviewing the basics is really important for improvement throughout the season! This season my goal for the Intermediate Whites is to help all of you reach your personal swimming goals and have fun while you’re at it.

Please remember to bring water bottles and runners to every practice and bring back your goal sheets by the end of the week if you haven’t already. If you have any questions please feel free to come see me before or after practice or send me an email to

See you at the pool,

Coach Hailey
