See and learn of creative concepts on exercises to improve swimming performances and joint balance between practices. Steve can help you help swimmers make a habit of doing specific things between practices that help them help themselves, going from good to great!
• Teach swimmers to apply the S.A.I.D. principle to their dryland training.
• Interact with Steve, live, in the most specific dryland swim environment.
• Build a plan for your swimmers to come back to swimming with better strokes and more specific strength and a HABIT of doing the right exercises between team practices.

We were to have a middle school meet on Thursday, Feb 6, 2020, and it is off for whatever reason. But, we'll hold a time trail with our swimmers. To make it more meaningful, let's open this up to share our results and make it a postal meet.
Do your times in your pool. We'll compare results and rank the swimmers' times.
The form below seeks coaches to sign up. We'll confirm events later with an email discussion. Then set up a form, again, or use a Google Document, to post results from the kids we coach.
Easy. Fun. No charge. If you have additional comments that you'd like others to see, post below on this page in the comments' section.
The Ellis School has four swimmers in grades 7 and 8 attending this meet.
Ellis swimmers have a warm-up time of 11:15 am and Google says it is a 2-hour-15-minute drive. Let's depart at 9 am. Try to arrive at the vans by 8:50 am so we can roll by 9 am. One parent is attending on the van with us so far.
Bring a snack for the van ride. After the meet we are invited to stay at the host school for pizza and salads. Sounds like a good offer to me.
The info below just arrived with final meet details.
