Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all. ~ Hellen Keller
This is an awesome quote! The swimmers come in daily looking for adventure and wanting to learn. They all make me better as a coach and I am seeing a lot of great swimming by the athletes!
During the first 16 weeks of the season, the Bronze and Pre-Comp have been a very fun and rewarding experience. The opportunity to coach the training groups have allowed for me to focus on the foundation of the program and the top end within the National Team. The swimmers are ages 5-8 years of age coming to practice with so much energy. It has definitely kept me on my toes.
The main focus with the swimmers has been to make it fun! They are learning drill progression, wording taught at this level and skills that will be carried throughout the program. The other piece is how they are all learning to work as a team. The environment is so exciting and at the end of every practice swimmers are wanting to do the breakdown.
Leading into future with big successes to come for our swimmers!
