National Team

In January, the National team increased the intensity of the workouts and continued to prepare for all the championship meets next month. We tweaked the dryland and competed at our first meet in 2014. The Scotty Invitational was held at the Saint Andrews pool. We used the meet to assess where we are in the season, as well as pinpoint our weaknesses. We immediately got back in the water and started working on it.
We also had a team of brazilians training with us. It was interesting to see our swimmers interact while trying to speak Portuguese and vice-versa.

On February 12, we will head to Orlando with a group of 8 swimmers to compete at the Arena Grand Prix meet.
Our upcoming training trip has been picked. We will be leaving to Arizona to train at the Northern Arizona University. Located at 7,000 feet above sea level, we look forward to working hard and do some sightseeing.
I'm excited to see how we perform at our next swim meets.

Senior I

chris-jacksonJanuary has been a month of solid training for Senior 1. We have steadily increased the yardage and intensity over the past few weeks and are in full training mode currently. My swimmers are looking very good in the water and much stronger in dry land. Senior 1 will continue to train hard the next few weeks as sectionals, Senior Champs and JO's will be here before we know it.

Senior 1 had one swim meet this month. My swimmers competed in The Scotty Invite held at St. Andrews in Boca. This was the first meet of the season so and it was a good chance for me to see what we need to work on. I saw a lot of things that can be improved and I've already started implementing them into practices. Senior 1 had good results at this meet posting a total of 27 best times! Notable results were produced by: Dylan Allen dropped 3 seconds in the 200 free and 29 in the 200 fly- Guy Bogoslavsky dropped 5 in the 100 breast, 3 in the 100 free and 9 in the 200 breast- Nick Dworet dropped 6 in the 100 breast and 6 in the 100 fly- Danny Gomez dropped 14 in the 200 fly-Kristen Sauer dropped 5 in the 200 free, 6 in the 200 im and 19 in the 500 fr- Luisa Suzuki dropped 12 in the 500 free. All in all it was a great month for Senior 1!!

See you at the pool,
Chris

Senior 2A

dave-cowmeadowThe month of January proved to be a very challenging month for Senior 2A. With all of the training adjustments we needed to make, and the pool space issues we had to deal with, we managed to come through it all with a great month of training.
The hard work put in by our swimmers was on full display in Boca January 25-26 at Saint Andrews. Alex Meyer continued to drop significant time, and swam very well despite eating the wall on EVERY turn in EVERY backstroke race he swam. I guess he didn't count his strokes in warm up? Nate Lalor, Hannah Pillado, Daria Chiarrella, Diego Sanguinetti and Lily (2 hours of sleep) Skopp also had solid swims and many best times.
The superstar of the meet was from one of our newest members; ASHLEY RUF, remember that name! This young lady has so many responsibility's its mind boggling. Whether is taking the ACT (yes as a 13 year-old), mathematics, or music she is always up to something. She puts in as much "swim" time as she can, and when she does wow look at her go! She took 7 seconds off her 100 backstroke time, and in the short time with our group has made excellent stroke adjustments. I have rarely worked with a swimmer that can make the adjustments Ashley has made in such a short amount of time, maybe its all that brain-power she has, who knows, but coach Dave loves it! Great Job Ashley!
The best part about the month of January was receiving our new teammates. A special welcome shout-out goes out to Hayley Simonson and Sadie Reese who are making the drive up from Miami everyday to train here. Combined they just may be the two nicest swimmers you will ever meet! Their positive attitude and hard work does not go unnoticed. Great month of training, lets keep it up!

Senior 2B

kayla-abramHello everyone! First I would like to start off by congratulating Noah Fratila and Darius Smith for moving up to the Senior 2A group! Great job guys! I'd also like to welcome Kalvin Hernandez, Casey Chin, Teresa Carr, Zachary Caton ,and Daniela Ortiz who moved up from gold to Senior 2B. We are excited that you are now apart of our team where you'll see some familiar faces and make some new friends.
Senior 2B had a relaxing break with a few days off for the holidays. We had our holiday party December 19th before we left and it was a great way to go. We played the "Elephant Game" where we got to steal and exchange gifts! Thank you to everyone who participated.
Now that we are back we are training harder than ever and doing more dry land and running exercises. We are getting ready for the Scotty invitational meet on January 25th and 26th, and the CSSC Invitational on February 8th and 9th. Practice times will be back to normal from now on, which is Monday thru Thursday, 5:30-7:15pm. I'm glad everyone is back and ready to swim!

Blue and White

erin-sayre-profile-photoJanuary was a great month of training and competition! We jumped back into our training regimen with heavy dry land training aimed at making the kids stronger and more explosive in the water for this upcoming year. We did not rest for our first meet of the year at Saint Andrews; however, there were still many awesome swims!
Jason Allen swam best times in all eight of his events! Many of his best times were more than 2 second improvements! He also swam the 500 freestyle for the first time with a time of 6:54.37. Great job Jason!
Rachel Botting has been working very diligently to technically improve her strokes and it really paid off with significant improvements in the 100 backstroke, 50 butterfly, 50 backstroke, 100 freestyle and a six second improvement and fourth place finish in the 200 IM.
Treasure D'Souza had an incredible meet with a seven second best time in the 100 breaststroke and a five second best time in the 100 freestyle.
Faith Fowler was among the swimmers who have been working very diligently to make stroke improvements and consequently had an outstanding meet! Faith swam a four second best time in the 100 butterfly, and best times in the 50 freestyle, 100 IM and 50 butterfly. Faith also swam the 500 freestyle for the first time and really swam awesome!
Emma Gomez is another swimmer with amazing results in some tough events. Emma swam the 200 freestyle for a five second best time, a half second improvement in the 50 freestyle, dropped a second and a half in the 100 freestyle. She also swam an almost nine second best time in the 200 IM and swam the 200 backstroke for the first time ever! To top it all off, she swam a fifty-one second best time in the 400 IM!
Meredith McDade made huge strides in the 200 freestyle with an eight second improvement, 100 IM with an almost five second improvement, and a four second improvement in the 100 freestyle, as well as other best times.
Grace Nemanic, new to white group, swam four out of four best times as well!
Gian Luca Savino took top places in most of his events as well as swam the 500 freestyle for the first time with a time of 5:59.21.
Greg Trimble had an awesome meet as well, qualifying for Jos, swimming all best times, and swimming an almost 14 second best time in the 200 freestyle and a 41 second best time in the 500 freestyle! There were many many other impressive swims as well. Blue and White groups, I am so proud of you! We will continue to train hard and make stroke improvements daily to make sure we hit many more best times at the Coral Springs Invitational in February and continue to look towards Area 2 Champs and the Junior Olympic meet!

Lastly, our diligence award winner this month is Gian Luca Savino! Gian Luca has been incredibly consistent with showing up prepared for practice and with an awesome attitude and persistence in making stroke improvements. Several of our blue and white team members have mentioned that they have noticed how hard Gian Luca has been working and have pointed out that they can see great improvement in his strokes! When fellow teammates notice a visible difference, that's really saying something! Gian Luca definitely knows how to balance having fun and working hard at the same time. While Coach Erin was out of town, the coaches mentioned how Gian Luca was a great help in leading the blue group practice and making sure everyone was on task. What great initiative! Congratulations Gian Luca! I am so proud of you!
