Four days out of the big meet

Departure for the Northwest Conference Championship: 4 Days.

The moment is almost here where the hard work culminates in fast swimming and the best team meet of the season. The competition where you are lifted up to great performances by your teammates and the team chemistry reaches its highest point of support and enthusiasm. Each race seems less contested by the individual and more by an entire team.
These next few days we spend honing the skills and capacities we built all season. This is an exciting time! It is a time of more sleep and an opportunity to finish up some school projects, take a deep breath, and prepare for a big weekend. Our workouts this week see great focus on the fundamentals with a little time to cut loose and practice such integral actions as relay exchanges, bubble rings and the goggle toss.
