Coach Mike's Corner - May 31

Hello Kigoos’ Family!
We made it past the May and we did it in style. All groups worked really hard, focused on improving their swimming, accept for the master swimmers… they need to pick it up, IM JOKING OF COURSE.

During the final week of May, every group swam a time trial and I got to say, we have some pretty fast swimmers in the club. Swimmers, keep up the great work, improvements will come and please view your times as a benchmark for future time trials so you can keep track of your progress. Your times will be compared to other Fraser South swimmers to see how you \rank against swimmers in other clubs within our BCSSA region.

What’s going on in June and July?
Going into June Seniors and Intermediates swimmers will be partaking in the Kigoos Swim League. The foundation of this league is going against convention, proving people wrong and saying why not to any challenge. This league is constructed to facilitate a fun competitive environment that combats the obstacles COVID-19 has placed in front of the sporting world. The KSL starts June first and ends July 31st with the Playoffs. So, there is a lot of time to sharpen your racing skills and put your hard hats because we are getting to work. The intermediate coaches and I have assigned our swimmers to teams where they will compete for the KSL cup! The teams are: Cobra Koi, Olympic Orcas, Record Breakers, Power Houses, Team Zero, and the Kiwis (the bird not the fruit). Teams and individual swimmers ought to develop a goal to strive for, because that’s when real progress starts. I wish all the teams the best of luck for the KSL season. Who’s going to be the champs? That is up to you.

Juniors, don’t worry! The Jr coaches have something special planned for you which they will announce shortly.
