Your Princeton Kokanee swimmers have been working extra hard this past week in preparation for Survivor week July 21 to 25.
One of the coaching techniques used by coaching staff is where they continually make practices harder and stronger for the entire season leading up to survivor week. Then, during Survivor week our coaches will be working to completely tire out the swimmers and their muscles.
The following week, Taper week, the coaches do a different style of training to build our swimmers muscles back up, so we can return to Regionals stronger than ever.
The coaches have a fun-filled week planned this week, with crazy practices, special guests, and extra team fun events! Some of the optional extra team events for Survivor week, on top of the regular swimming schedule, include things like; a team trip to the Splash Park, hike up at China Ridge with a picnic lunch, a Wii party held at the coaches home, regional team cheer and costume work party, and last but not least, a team celebration with a movie and pizza to congratulate members for making it through Survivor week.
This weeks events should be a lot of fun, please feel free to join us in the stands and watch our amazing kids perfecting their craft.
Swimmers of the week for July 9 to16 are as follows; Turtles swimmer Paisley Wessel, who has been full of smiles all week. She has started jumping in and submerging her whole head! She even jumped in unassisted and swam back to the wall this week. Way to go Paisley!
Development swimmer Mathew Williams has been doing a fabulous job of kicking this week. He has learned to point his toes in flutter kick. He also started jumping in the deep end unassisted and swimming to the wall. Super swimming this week Mathew!
Junior/Senior swimmer Norm – The Machine Anderson never stops. He does every set with enthusiasm and “Yes Coach.” He has been working really hard on his breathing in his butterfly this week and our coaches know it is going to show in his next swim meet. Go get that club record Norm!
Once again our team is off to Salmon Arm Invitational on the weekend of July 19 and 20. We are very excited to participate in this meet, as it is our last invitational before Regionals.
Keep your eyes posted for our swimming results next week, and once again thank you for your ongoing support Princeton.
