Hi JD White swimmers and parents,
My name is Sophia Kostiuk and I am SO excited to be coaching JD white this summer season!
I have been lucky enough to be a part of Kigoos for 9 years. This is my second season coaching and I am very pleased to be working with such an enthusiastic and motivated group of swimmers.
The first and second weeks have been going great. Within the first week we reviewed all the basics of freestyle including flutter kick, pull and proper body positioning. During the second week, we worked on backstroke. I was very impressed with JD White’s backstroke skills. Everyone has straight legs and can keep their tummy up for two lengths. For the next two weeks, we will focus on breaststroke, as this is a challenging stroke. I’m amazed at everyone’s enthusiasm at every practice. Something everyone can work on is having their eyes and ears above the water to be able to hear the next set.
My overall goal for this season is to have every member of JD White not only being able to swim all four strokes, but to be able to swim them strongly with proper technique. For me this means things like turns, touches and stroke execution as these are all things that will prevent you from getting DQ’ed at meets. So far we have had amazing attendance and I want all swimmers to keep this up and come to 4-5 practices every week.
If you have any questions feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or come talk to me before or after practice. I’m Looking forward to working with everyone and an exciting and fun filled season.
