Editors Note: This is delayed in getting out because Coach had not packed anything for his speaking engagement at the 2016 ASCA Clinic in Fort Lauderdale.
Meet started a little slow with a group missing their first swim. Learning opportunity all around for everyone. Line up was posted on Tuesday. We should all look at it. Heat Sheets/Meet Program was available for us to look at. We should all look at it. Same line up was posted on the wall at the pool. We should all look at it.
We encompasses everyone – those swimming, those not swimming, coaches. We must ALL be helping each other. We are together. If you are not sure, please ask.
After that little bump, we swam well.
We would like to see a better transition between doing things correct at practice and the executing them at the meet. Example: we put the orange cone on the bottom of the pool for breakouts at practice and we all execute very well. Then last night we had individuals not carry that forward.
We have had a great week of practice this week with the intensity getting stronger. We had a fair amount of swims yesterday that were representative of the hard work showing up.
We must keep the mindset of continuing to improve each day.
