As I have posted previously, I have taken a small group of kids (6-8) & used the summer to implement USRPT. Our head coach just resigned so our team will now be 100% USRPT across the board…..I’M PUMPED (now what to do about that pesky high school training).
We are about 8 weeks into our training. We went to 3 LC meets this summer (including champs). The first one was about 3 weeks into training…..it was NOT good. Second was about 5 weeks into training…..it was better.
Our 3rd was last wknd, I took 2 14yo (1 boy, 1 girl) to Champs. They had a total of 6 swims (3 each) and dropped a combined 13.73 seconds!!! Made finals, got AAA cuts, etc…
The best part wasn’t even the times, it was watching their bodies “compete like we train.” They held pace, technique, etc. Our warmup was almost identical to our practice warmup & they were mentally ready. It was great to see. The girl (my daughter) had pretty close swims on Sat. 50 free (got the AAA cut), then not too long to 100bak (dropped 6 seconds).
pretty cool to see & just wanted to share
