After a week of evening practices, Coach John changed the evening practices as follow:
JR 1 swimmers will have stroke instruction (stroke school) from 4:45 pm to 5:30 pm Monday to Thursday. The focus will be on learning breast and fly, letting me focus on teaching those strokes to just the Junior I swimmers. This new time gives me 15 more minutes with them each day.
Please note this time will only be for JR 1 swimmers. There is no change to the morning practice times, where the focus is on improving free and back plus starts, turns, and finishes but no breast or fly stroke work as that will be done in the evening
JR 2 & PreSenior swimmers’ evening practices will be from 5:30 pm to 6:15 pm Monday to Thursday with the focus on aerobic conditioning. Longer sets / more distance will be the norm. The purpose of this practice time is designed for those swimmers already registered with USA Swimming who want to swim the USA Swimming long course meet on Jul 7&8 in Nashville
5:30 pm - 6:45 pm Senior
