Hello All,
The long awaited report from Springs. I am very sorry that it is a couple of weeks late as I went to Russia and then jet lag got the best of me. We had a long time to prepare for Spring meet, almost 5 months. My focus during this time was to prepare the squad to make all their finals and also to beat their personal bests and I was very proud at everyone’s performance.
There is not much more to say as I have already highlighted the swimmers after Springs. I am sure many of you remember my laser. Next time keep it away from me or I get carried away. There are some mistakes, which is good because it gives us something to work on and improve for next time. For those who do not know, I would like to say I am very proud that our club got placed 4th overall, we are a small club and competition was tough.
We have already started our new swimming season and getting ready to prepare for competition in March. This season I will be concentrating mainly on dryland training so that we get fitter and stronger, so be prepared. Please do check your emails regularly for new timetables as in November many swimmers are on exams and trainings will be more flexible and then our timetable will be a little bit different during December and January, so please keep checking up on that. If you have any problems or you have forgotten when training is, send us a text or call on 021 078 4100.
Finally, I would like to say good luck to all the open swimmers and Auckland Juniors, I hope you all do well and break your personal bests. Please come and support the swimmers when you can, I am sure they would like the encouragement.
Group updates will be sent shortly.

Coach's Report

From October to November we started our program, it was pretty flexible with training as many swimmers had exams around this time, I do not think this affected anyone’s progress in their main competitions either as we had plenty of time during school holidays to prepare.

In the Auckland Swimming Association region the Level 3 meets have been divided into three regions, Waitakere Zone which covers West Auckland, Northern Zone which covers the North Shore and Central Zone which covers Central Auckland. The minimum age band for Level 2 swimmers is 11 and under, so even if a swimmer is a 9 year old he or she will need to achieve the minimum 11 and under qualifying time for male or female swimmers.
