Notes from Paton
It's been a great short course season for those attending meets! The list of best times, improved standards, team records, and accomplishments is long. 54 swimmers have competed in at least one meet since September. 34 of those have attended 2 or more with the most of any one swimmer being 7 meets. Our coaching staff has attended 15 meets over that same period. We would love to have even more participation! 54 swimmers is only about 1/3 of our team roster.
Please familiarize yourselves with this website. You can access meet results, meet schedules, team records and time standards (found on our Team Stats website), plus all you need to know about how meets work on our meetinfo page.
Our Local Swim Committee (LSC) ( the SI website) is also very useful and has more detailed meet information under their Meets tab.
Our national governing body is USA Swimming. USA Swimming's website is http://www.usaswimming.org/. An amazing resource for parents, swimmers, and coaches. Register your swimmers for an account through the USA Swimming website and track all of their times, improvement, and what this sport is all about through Deck Pass.
For those of you using Facebook, I also push interesting article to our Wind N Sea FB group page Wind N Sea Swim Team. Join the group!
