Reply To: Do you think USRPT is same as HIT or HIIT?
We have 5-7 coaches on deck. We had 31 state qualifiers, 12 of those were summer swim league girls. We had 68 percent personal bests at our league meet on top of 75 percent at a mini-taper meet 3 weeks earlier. We had numerous girls with substantial drops. For example, a young lady came into a mid-season week at 108 in fly. Swam 105 on Thurs, then 103 on Sat. She bought in, worked hard and it paid off.
All practices are tailored to specific races and strokes so, no, we do not all swim the same thing. Our HC is a master organizer during warm-up depending on who is swimming that day. We also shuffle as needed to make lane management less insane. We will swim 11 in a lane for 50s. It may be a mix of freestylers and backstrokers, all lined up by their goal time. It’s insane but we make it work.
Our girls love it. Hope that answers your questions.
