The book is a celebration of being in the water, the benefits that we take from the experience of being submerged, and wanting to share that joy with others. This past summer as I started my morning swim in the [...]

A weekly update from Coach Rodrigo and Coach Fraser Another week in the books and we're already seeing great improvements from our dual-sport athletes. Swimming You've probably heard from your athlete that the fins have come out for practice. A lot of the drills that we do require core and leg strength that just isn't there yet, so the fins provide that extra lift in the water. The bonus for the kids is that fins are fun. A belated Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! We hope it was a pleasant break for your family. Water Polo [...]
