Cost: $210 All athletes must be registered on Fee Pay prior to the first day of practice/tryouts.
Due to the large participation in girls swimming and diving it is necessary to split the team for certain workouts. This decision is based on what is best for the team and for the individuals on the team. To maximize efficiency during workouts more room for each individual would be beneficial. By having two practice sessions the coaching staff feels all athletes will benefit.
The downside of this plan is the team will spend much of the first three weeks split in two. One of my main goals as a coach has always been to develop a unified team attitude. Therefore, this workout plan will put more pressure on the team leadership and each individual to seek and understand team goals. I do believe that with the support of everyone we can succeed with this plan and have a better experience for all the athletes.
All practices will be held at Stillwater Middle School Pool.
Starting August 14, Monday-Friday the team will be split into two practice sessions.
On Saturdays the team will practice together.
This schedule will continue until school starts.
Once school starts the team will practice together after school and on Saturdays.
PRIOR TO THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL:
Monday - Friday: Group Epsilon: practice time 7:00 am - 9:30 am Group Omega: practice time 8:45 am - 11:15 am Saturdays: All practice 7:00 am - 9:30 am
AFTER THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL: Monday - Friday: all athletes practice after school 3:15 pm - 5:45 pm Saturdays (without meets) and non-school days: all athletes 7:00 am - 9:30 am
The coaching staff has tried to divide the team into groups that will benefit the individual involved. We feel it is imperative the athlete attend the session she has been assigned to. This will help ensure she receives the maximum benefit from her time at the pool. I understand it is possible this may impact your family's schedule, but I firmly believe this is something that will benefit your daughter in the long run.
As the season proceeds the groups will continually be evaluated and altered. These groups will not be based on making a section qualifying time. The purpose of the groups is to facilitate workout efficiency. As the groups are reorganized during the season, this will be the objective.
GROUP ASSIGNMENTS ARE LISTED BELOW
Only those who participated last year are named.
All divers should attend the Epsilon practice on the first day.
All new swimmers should attend Omega practice on the first day.
