Dear Parents and Swimmers,
Welcome to what is without a doubt the home stretch of the season. At this point our sectional and Conference rosters are set and we are ready for a great conference meet next Saturday. I will send out more information about the conference meet at DGS next Sunday/Monday but I wanted to take a moment to remind everyone to look into tech suits if you are interested. There is no doubt that there is a huge advantage to wearing a technical suit at a taper meet and all are encouraged to wear one. They may be purchased through our team website, the swimoutlet.com, or at Swimmer’s edge. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
Also, it is imperative that everyone is taking care of themselves over this last bit of the season. I do not mean to be Mr. No Fun, but other events and activities should be held to a minimum in order to stay healthy and rest up. Further, if you have not been taking any sort of recovery drink after practice please read this article and try to adapt one for the last portion of the year. There are great gains that can be made just by making sure you are putting good protein and carbs into your body. While it advocates for steel cut oats as well a simple powder and shake can help a great deal.
Lastly, it is my pleasure to announce that we have guaranteed at least a second place finish in the WSC Gold Conference for a 5th straight season. We graduated a number of very talented swimmers last year and the way these girls stepped up was incredible. I am very proud of all that the girls have accomplished and cannot wait to see what they do over the next few meets. As always, please contact me with any concerns or questions.
