2019 West Dual Results

bb0d20e4ec0d57eee707be392e62689f

I think I like who WE are Becoming!

We talked about 3 things at our team meeting before we got started tonight.  We wanted to focus on:

  • Tight Streamlines with great turns and breakouts
  • Swim passionately in our events with energy and get after it to race to the wall
  • Support everyone in every race

It appeared from where we the coaches stood we did all three of those things in a way that makes swimming fun.  There were 39 season best times.

The coaches know you are sore and tired, and this is the part of the season where you need to be all in and Trust the Process. It is painful but fighting through this like we did tonight will pay off at the end of the season!!

Swim-A-Pooloza 8 Wrap Up

There are hours and hours of planning the occur to make the 24 hours run smoothly.  If you brought food, donated money, helped drive, cooked on the grill, picked up extra groceries, checked in with your daughter (once or twice), stopped in to say HI, came to the Famly Night portion, or even came to rip the diving guard rails out…THANKS.

It is support all around that make us who we are and who we will become.  The coaching staff is extremely grateful for all your help.

There is still time to donate as well. Our first purchase will be meet shirts to wear on deck for meets to keep our branding process going.

If you did not get a chance to meet with Coach Jordon or Coach Bri for your goal sheets, please make time to do so after practice before Wednesday.

Here are the final takeaways:

  • The addition of family night that was added 3 years ago to the event has turned out better than expected.  We connected families together, coaches got to meet and talk to new families.  That is always a bonus
  • Make sure the equipment bags are hung up at the end of each practice.  Coach Bri is making it her personal mission to make sure the office stays clean.  It is funny to a degree, but she is 100 percent correct in that it is a reflection of who we are and if our office is sloppy that carries over to over parts of our approach to our training and racing.
  • Looked like at last calculation we went about 58K meters.  Might think about moving away from all kicking for sessions but that can be discussed.
  • The diving boards and guard rails are gone.  Please be careful around the concrete block and the pedestal that still remain.  We have the corners protected but please be careful.

Early Morning Check In

IMG-4915Cinnamon Rolls are in the oven.  Some have slept.  Some have elected to not sleep.  A couple of movies have been watched.  Friendship bracelets have been made. A scavenger hunt was had.

The Captains did an excellent jump planning and organizing this for the team.

We are close to our 24-hour swimming fundraiser.  There is still time to make a donation to the team.

Sun should be up soon and it will be time for our wake up swim.
