Reply To: Location and USRPT Status
Brad from NY.
Used the USRPT format last summer with some good results.
Did a bit of a hybrid system this year. Results were decent but issues with pool time and attendance made the season less successful than it could have been.
As someone alluded to before I think the biggest challenge is the lack of variety and predictability in the sets. I worked in more Salo type sets this season for that reason.
Was that wise? I don’t know, but I think if you do it in a way that allows the swimmers to stay on pace or faster a little novelty can go a long way.
