HONGQIAO WATER WEEKLY: FEB. 11-17

  1. HAPPY YEAR OF THE PIG

 

Great job to all the swimmers who kept training over the Chinese New Year break, those who swam at school and those who swam on their holiday break.

A great big thank you to Marc Vliegenberg who came to help us with the seniors over his own holiday break.  The swimmers thoroughly enjoyed your sets and your presence on poolside!  Thanks again!

2. TRAINING THIS WEEK

All training as normal for all training groups.  

Varsity to confirm all trainings please go to TEAM INFORMATION – PRACTICE GROUPS and our practice schedule is posted there.  *Any mistakes or problems you can see with the website, please email myself (Coach Cheryl).

Just to confirm: YES, practice starts at 5:30am.

Aim of the week:

Trying to get to a place where the coach explains the set 1x.  Keep up the focus in the practice.  Of course if it is a new concept more time can be spent.  Please save Coach Cheryl’s vocal cords.

Dryland:

Additional to our gym session on Monday morning, I have created a few new sequences that we shall spend time perfecting and progressing from before we hit the water each evening!
