Don’t Forget – You Must Remember!
last day of practice will be Monday, December 23. Next year, we will start practices on Monday, January 6th . I will
be away with the UNO team when we start back and need two coaches to help out. Thank you Gary for volunteering to coach
on Jan 3rd. Who can coach on Jan 7th?
Everyone needs to be a 2014 USMS members before they come to
swim practice on January 6th . If you signed up for USMS after November (2013) then your membership is good for 2014.
This is not a suggestion - this is a MUST. USMS is the
insurance leg of our program in which everyone in the pool and on the deck must have either USMS or USA Swimming membership
in order for all to be covered. (Our club is the Omaha Masters option on the USMS registration form.)

program means many things to many people: a weight loss or weight maintenance program, stress release, or a choice of fitness.
You might be a person that has the competitive itch: swimming or triathlons. Just as goals are varied, so are individual
personalities. Remember that the way you approach your swimming is not always the same way your lane mates approach
their swimming. These varied and individual styles can lead to little frustration popping up every once in awhile.
Since we are adults, most differences can be sorted out within the lane. Please approach each other with open minds
and appreciation for differences in ourindividual goals. Every once in awhile differences may be difficult to resolve.
It is at this point that you should get me involved so we can find common ground and we can determine the best solution.
We have a great program that tries to make room for anyone who wants to participate in a structured workout and I would like
to keep that philosophy. - Todd
