Missing (Some of) You
In March we had ninety-three swimmers. As of today, we have sixty-two
swimmers. We are missing thirty-one of you. Many of you are concerned about COVID and it is a serious
health concern. Our program has done a very good job with social distancing in the lanes. If you are
wanting to get back to the water, but not sure come check out a practice! If there are other reasons keeping you
away, please call/ text/ email me. You are missed.
Twitter and Facebook
This is a perfect time to dabble in social media – twitter and facebook. The
past two weeks our practices have been posted on these platforms. By getting a preview, this will allow you to
get a feel for what is coming and better understand practice. For further assistance, the practices are printed
and posted at the end of the lane – which has helped keep people on the same page. For those not swimming
with us, you can print off the practice and keep up with your swimming! Spread the word – share and retweet
so others can enjoy the practice!
Back to School Season
this time of year the family schedules change. In order to accommodate your schedule better, would you like to
change your practice time slot? Text or email me the new time slot you would like to move to: if a spot is available,
I will make the move. Our new back to school schedule will go into effect on August 17. Once you move
to that new time slot you will need to stay in it until the end of September.

Slot 2 – Kroc 5:30-6:30 am
Monday & Thursday (limited to 24 swimmers)
Slot 3 – Kroc 5:30-6:30 am
Tuesday & Friday (limited to 24 swimmers)
Slot 4 – Kroc 5:30-6:30 am
Wednesday & 8-9 am Saturday (limited to 24 swimmers)
Be EARLY to Practice
Because our practices are formatted in a station set up, it very helpful to have swimmers 5-10 minutes early
on deck! Coming in early also allows the coach to make lane adjustments. If you are late you may
be asked to come back to practice another day. Kroc swimmers need to arrive with plenty of time for Covid entry procedures.
Get Lower in the Water
When you are resting, stay low in the water. Specifically, do not stand
up all the way. It is best to have swimmers low with shoulders in the water. Here is the reason: exercise
increases respiration rate and increases respiration force; by keeping low your exhaled droplets won’t travel as far.
