Two dual meets left until the Conference Meet. Homecoming is over. It is time to start turning all attention to swimming and diving. No more distractions. Time to make sure that we use our time wisely to get our home work completed and to allow for a little extra sleep. Laser like FOCUS will be a common theme this week.
It will also be vital to stay healthy as the weather changes on a daily basis. Change out of suits after practice. Dress warm. Bring a winter cap.
Also, until the end of the season, all swimmers will swim down after meets. No changing clothes early and getting out. There is substantial evidence that swimming down is beneficial. Here is one such article.
Monday and Tuesday will include Dry Land for the late practice group this week from 4:15 to 5:15. Captains need to lead the first 15 minutes.
Monday and Tuesday will have the early group and the divers practicing at the same time of 3:30 to 5:30PM, while the late group swims from 5:30 to 7:30PM
Wednesday the divers will dive from 3:30 to 5:30. ALL Swimmers will practice from 4:45 to 6:45 and will have a Captains Practice. This is something we have done in the past and it serves as a little rewards for the hard work and efforts up to this point.
Thursday is the dual at Waukesha West starting at 6 PM. Please arrive at 4:45 and be ready to start the warm up at 5 PM. ((Side note — there have been a couple of complaints that the Secret Buddies are not all bringing things to meets. Please remember this week))
Friday off again.
Saturday will be a swim for the entire team from 8 AM to 10 AM
