you Erin Sullivan, Amber-Sky Green, and Sue Nutty for taking an active roll in coaching our program J
Volunteer Coaches Needed
Coming up (October 14
– 18) the UNO Women’s swim/ dive team will be going to Colorado for a few meets
and some altitude training. Two volunteers are needed to coach. One coach will be needed for Saturday, October
15 (7 am) and another coach will be needed for Tuesday, October 18 (6 am). It would be nice to have someone other than
Erin, Amber-Sky, or Sue to enjoy this powerful position on the deck – the joy of being a supreme dictator. The
workouts will be written up but you have the power to change the practice to give it your own twist. Let me know if
you can volunteer.
Results of the Changes
program is doing well considering the changes we are experiencing. Over the past 5 years we have averaged 72 swimmers
for September, this year we have 57 swimmers – it would be nice to reach above 60 again. In past years we average
23 plus swimmers per practice, this year we average 22.0. The 5 am time slot on Wednesday and Friday has averaged 18.1
people per practice, the 6 am time slot on Tuesday and Thursday has averaged 23.5 people per practice, and Saturday (7 am)
has averaged 17 people per practice. So we do have a little more room for some members (past and new) to join us in
The final quarter has arrived; October,
November, December. The fee is $35 per month and $90 per quarter.
Since we are a good size program with 3 to 6 swimmers per
lane on a regular basis, it might be time to offer some lane etiquette.
brush your teeth before you come to swim practice!!
- Get is the water safely by
getting in feet first – do not dive in the water.
- If you need to rest, then
rest in the corner, preferably the right hand corner. By resting in the right hand corner it allows for a better flow
of people swimming into the wall. Do not rest in the middle of the wall, do not cross from one side of the wall to the
other, and do not stop in the middle of the pool.
- When leaving on the interval,
give the person ahead of you a 5 second lead (not three seconds and not ten seconds – it must be FIVE).
- If you accidentally contact (hit or kick) someone, use good manners by apologizing (even if it didn’t
hurt you or if it was the other person’s fault).
- Talk with your lane mates
to determine who should go first, and the first person should let the rest of the lane know when they are leaving.
- Help each other and enjoy the company of each other, you are part of an incredible group
- Brush your teeth!
you have other lane etiquette suggestions, then please drop me a line.
