Coaches’ Corner: Throughout this three week program, our coaches will foster the importance of technique helping the swimmers to become faster, and more efficient in the water. This three week program will be similar to regular a practice but will be different. We will not use equipment and will be practicing social distancing. Swimmers are not allowed to gather at the end of the lane so continuous swimming will be enforced. For this reason, all swimmers must be able to swim 150 meters without stopping and be willing to follow all guidelines set out by the coaches. We thank you for supporting us through this modified season and hope that you and your swimmers will benefit from our technique focused program.

Thank you! We look forward to a return to swim to many of our swimmers!
