Best part of Week 7 for me as a coach, after the great practices during the week and divers being insane at the meet, is the Family Night part of the week.
It may not seen like much….a simple introduction, a flower, a picture.
But the swimmers and divers understand that Family Night is more than that. They know that without the people in the picture that none of this would be possible. The late night pick ups, the early morning drives, the last minute meals, the consoling when things go wrong, the support during the challenging times, the love and dedication during the good times.
The other part of that coin is that is what we all appreciate every single day at practice and at meets. We struggle and succeed each day. But we are the only ones that truly understand the process and things we are all going through. We support each other through all the up and downs. Our little group of 35 is a family all by itself.
Great effort this morning to end the week after a new late week day off. It was awesome to see the family function as a whole to end the week
