Welcome Junior B
Hey Juniors Bs!
For those who haven’t met me, My name is Sophia or Coach Soph as the swimmers call me. This is my seventh season with the Kigoos and my second summer coaching. I’m beyond excited to be working with the Junior B group this season, this was the first group I ever swam with when it comes to Kigoos, and it truly holds a special place in my heart.
Things look a little different this year with covid and all the new procedures we have implemented at the pool, but with such an eager and fast adapting group of kids, we have had no problems whatsoever. My overall goals for this season are to improve proficiency and technique with all our swimming skills, work on our fitness and endurance, gain confidence in the water, make some friends, and most importantly, have fun.
The first week of practice went by fast, and I’m thrilled to be working with such a positive and motivated group of junior swimmers. Our focus this past week was just getting back into the pool; we reviewed freestyle, underwaters, dolphin kick, backstroke and even did a butterfly practice this morning. I do hope to improve speed this summer, but my number one focus is the fundamentals as they are the most essential aspects of enhancing success in later years of swimming.
I’m very impressed by what I’ve seen of our group’s skill level so far and see so much potential in each and every swimmer. We want to make as much progress and possible this summer, so please try your best to attend as many practices as you can. I’m so excited for what this summer has in store and hope all of you are to see you on the pool deck
