Hey JD Blues,

I have been amazed all of these last two weeks all of your Breaststrokes have improved so much! Good job on all of our best times this weekend at the Super 7 Swim Meet and at the North Delta JD Meet! Let’s make sure we are getting to all of the practices this week. The more we come to practice the more best times we will all be seeing at the meets. We have spent most of this last week working on our Breaststrokes, so we will try a bit of Butterfly this coming up week. I can’t wait to see you all at the pool. Don’t forget to come to the Movie Night this Thursday!

Hey JD Blues,

Sorry I haven’t been sending out too many blogs I will try to send one out each week from now on.
As we approach the Icebreaker we will be working on our dives and our turns. Make sure now that we are getting into our racing season that we are trying to come out to as many swim practices as possible. I am so happy to see how much you guys have improved since the start of this season I am so proud of all of you. I know you guys will do so well at the Icebreaker. Please be sure to come and see me to check in when you get to the meet. Also I’d like to talk to each of you prior to and after your races. Please come out for Posters and Cheers this Friday! Can’t wait to see all of my amazing swimmers.
I know that this will be the first official race for many of you guys, so here is a clip from my very first swim race:

Hello JD Blues and JD parents,

Welcome to Kigoo Summer 2015, I am Jacob (Jake) Lee and I will be coaching the JD Blue group for this summer. I have been a part of Kigoos since 2007 and this year I have been given the chance to coach my own group. I am very excited and know this season is going to be so much fun just from these first couple practices. Some of my accomplishments from last year would be the winning of 5 gold medals at last year’s regional competition, and then competing at the Provincial Championships. I have been a volunteer with the Kigoos Tater Tot program and a CIT/Assistant Coach for many years.

A few rules that I have for the season for my swimmers are:

-Listening when I am talking

-Working as hard as we can

-Have fun

These are three easy rules that if we all listen to and follow, I know we will all have a fun and fast swimming filled season. Welcome to JD Blue!
