I'd like to take a moment to remind everyone that summer swim team is about friendship, learning to swim, improving strokes and sometimes winning a race or a meet. We have a lot of competitive young kids on our team and we need to make sure that they are encouraging one another at practice and at meets. Practice is not about trying to beat everyone in your lane; it's about focusing on your technique and improving YOUR strokes to be the best swimmer that you can be. Please resist the urge to compare your swimmer to other swimmers. Each swimmer has his or her own unique strengths that they bring to our team- please try to encourage them to build those strengths as we progress through the summer season.
See you on the deck!
