The Mullins Park program at the Coral Springs Swim Club serves children ages 6 to 12 in three different groups: the Red, the Green and the Gold. Led by coaches Jessica Nugent Long and Emma Volz, young swimmers at Mullins Park get introduced to the swim team experience, begin technique drills and interval training, and participate in their first USA Swimming sanctioned meets. Every month, the coaching team highlights the performance and commitment to improvement of a swimmer from each group. “We want to recognize their hard work, discipline and dedication to the sport,” said Nugent Long.
Here are the Swimmers of the Month for November/December 2016:
