Welcome back to swimming in 2017! Tomorrow we begin our March Stroke Clinic at Schaal and on Thursday we return to DSF.
March is the start of the Summer Swim Season. Yes I realize March can fall under Winter or Spring and why would one start summer swim team now? The practices in March start building the foundation for the swimmers for the summer season.
In March we focus on stroke technique for all of our groups. While this will continue to be a primary focus throughout our entire program as we are very technique dominated program, as season approaches we shift into more training the body's energy systems for the older kids (BLACK and HIGH SCHOOL) and the RED group starts to learn to use the pace clock and do interval training in addition to the technique aspect of the program.
Our summer meets begin May 7th at the Rio Invite and our League Champs are July 15th & 16th. With the Summer Classic during Labor Day weekend.We are finalizing a few more meets and will have the meet schedule out soon.
Another benefit of starting in March, the size of groups are much smaller than in the Fall session so there is nice additional time with the swimmer and coach. While we offer great swimmer to coach ratios throughout the year, March is a good time to have a bit more space in the pool.
See you all soon. We are looking forward to seeing all the AquaMonsters returning for another fun swim season!
