Coach Tom’s report:

Great weekend for the Riptides both young and old, a big thank you to all the parents who volunteered at the meet, they do not run without you and a big thank you to our sponsors in Subway and Good Earth for the food and beverage donations. 

Well done to my squads who showed some great demonstrations of the techniques we have been working on at the start of the year. It takes focus and concentration to put them into practice in races and I was really pleased to see so many of the swimmers thinking about this. As well as some early speed and some great times across the board from all the swimmers.

15 Club records went down over the weekend, with 3 overall Pentathlon winners. Great start all, keep up the work in training and in the gym, it will pay off! We move on towards Cascade Speed Meet for qualifiers and then onto KSC Invitational for all. Thank you for all your support.

Coach Alex’s report:

What a fantastic weekend! I am so proud of everyone who swam this weekend. We all achieved personal best’s (PB’s) in at least 1 event if not all events. We also had some first-time winter competitors such as Maddie, Parker, Heather, Finlay and Spencer. You did amazing at your first meet! We had Ella who achieved her 50 FR and BK as well as her 100 FR  Provincials standard for girls 10 and under! Wow!

What I was looking for specifically in this meet was:
  1. 1 – FUN!
  2. 2 – Our ‘little things’ as we call, such as streamlines and breakouts.
  3. 3 – KICK!

We did very well on all points, but my novice groups know that more kick is on the way 😉 This month we will be working a lot on our flip turns and breakouts, more fine tuning to be done. Today they were looking very good!
