Swim Club Room Gets a Welcome and Extreme Makeover
We commenced our work on the morning of April 9th as the senior squad began their early session, the drab walls of our club room are more likened to a prison cell rather than a centre for smiling faces, sweaty brows and a gathering of teammates and friends.
Swim Meet update, please note. We’ve adjusted the timing of Saturday evening’s event May 3rd to commence warm ups at 15.00 instead of the original 17.30.
We’re delighted to welcome a guest blog from Julia Galan, Director of Swimspire. Some of you already know Julia from the team’s successful participation at a previous meet in Neuchatel, Switzerland in 2010.
Swimmers Training Juice
Finding the motivation to go to swim training on a daily basis can be difficult. This goes for competitive swimmers at any age or level.
All too often swimmers will begin to burn out and start to consider the sport in terms of a burden or a ticket through college. Perhaps just a means to an end.
