Junior Waves 2022/23 – Week 3

Brockville Swim Meet Some more details are coming in about the meet. We have close to 60 swimmers participating in this meet -- this will be WAVE's largest contingent in our short history as a dual-sport club. Thank you for your commitment to the meet, to your athlete, and to completing all the paperwork. I will be doing the entries today or tomorrow. Once the entries are in, you are committed to the event financially as well as spiritually. One common misconception is that athletes (and sometimes parents) chose the events to be swum. This [...]

Nepean Sportsplex Entry

The main lobby of the Nepean Sportsplex is still under construction. Please use the following instructions to enter the pool: Use the emergency exit located between Physio and the Lawn Bowling Club. Please respect the following from the Facility Manager: We are asking all clubs to exit no later than 15 minutes after their booking end time.  The luxury of waiting in the lobby for a ride home is no longer an option.  Therefore, all parents should be at the Sportsplex ready to drive their child(ren) home as soon as your club’s practice is done.

Junior Waves 2022/23 – Week 2

Boys Changing Room Some boys are insisting on changing in toilet stalls. This is most unsanitary. Have your athlete practice the "deck change". The pace clock More and more you will hear me instructing the athletes on the use of the pace clock. I keep things simple for the Junior Waves by trying to keep stop/start times to the Top, 15, Bottom, and 45. Have your Junior Wave A athlete go through this quiz. It may be a little advanced but now that most athletes have a year of swimming under their belt, [...]

Junior Waves 2022/23 – Week 1

The first week, always the hardest, is in the books. The reality of Ottawa U's construction was a bit of a shocker, but it is getting better. I was there yesterday and more of the changing rooms are open now which is a positive sign. Thanks to Lisa for helping to organize everyone with a meeting point to safely get everyone to the pool. In swimming we worked on streamline and pushing off the wall. This will be old news to some of our swimmers and new to others. Streamline is vital to swimming. Creating [...]
