Coach Cokie

The workouts that follow are guidelines, primarily listed for our satellite swimmers who work out on their own. For actual team practices, each of our coaches has free reign to deviate and bring their own workout to the pool. So don’t let a workout you see below be your guide to whether or not you come to practice. Heck, you may not even see that workout. Just come swim! Any way you slice it, it will be good for you!

  • Tuesday, Aug 19: #153 200 Pull Free - Coach Cokie 
  • Wednesday, Aug 20: #152 Freestyle Mix - Coach Susie
  • Thursday, Aug 21: #156 Sprint with Fins!- Coach Cokie
  • Friday, Aug 22: #158 Long Axis -  Coach Susie. Those going to Modesto Sat should do a meet warm up only!
  • Saturday, Aug 23: #297 3-5-7  Middle Distance - Coach Susie

i-coach-219192617_std1Ever thought about coaching? Want to learn more about what it takes to be a Masters coach? We are blessed to have local opportunities for just such training this fall/winter 2014.

First up we have the USMS Level 1 & 2 Coaches Certification training. That will be held at Rolling Hills Club in Novato on Saturday, October 4th from 9-5pm (show up at 8:30 for check in). The following day the instructors and coaches in the class will host a 3-hour stroke clinic for swimmers (covering all 4 strokes). That will be held at Rolling Hills Club as well and runs from 9am-noon (again, show up at 8:30 for check-in).

Then, on Saturday, December 5th, USMS is returning to Novato (again at Rolling Hills Club) to bring us USMS Level 3 Coaches Certification training.

If you think there is a chance in the future you might want to coach a Masters team, then seize this opportunity to catch this training close to home!

Cokie will be teaching the Level 1 & 2 class in October, and normally teaches the Level 3 course but will be in Cuba in December.

Here are the team records for the women of Swymnut Masters in a long course meters pool. Since we are a young team, there are oodles of opportunities to set a team record. If a category is blank, that means no Swymnut woman has participated in that event in that venue (50 meter pool).

Kate Eby was in Oregon this past weekend for some open water swimming. Turns out not just the State of CA, OR and WA are on fire, so was Kate. She drives up to Cascade Lakes Oregon to compete in some open water events. Some you say? How about 4 swims?!? Saturday was the 500 meter and 1500 meter swim. Sunday was the 5K and 1000 meter swim. How’d she do? Holy smokes! First, second, second, third in the individual swims and FIRST overall for her age group.

She definitely fits as a NUT! Way to go Kate, we are all proud of you!

Oh yeah, by the way, on her return home, they closed the freeway she had used to travel from Sacramento to Oregon. That led to a 200 mile detour to get home. All the more time to savor those incredible swims. Kate Eby Cascade Lake OR
