Coach Cokie

Aug 302014
 

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!

  • Wednesday, Sept 3: #69 Leg Work - Coach Susie
  • Thursday, Sept 4: #259 Breast & Free - Coach Cokie

  • Senior Games held Sunday, November 16th in SF at the Martin Luther King Pool (indoor). This meet is needed if you want to attend the 2015 National Senior Games in Minneapolis and have not yet done one of the Senior Games qualifying meets. Even if you don’t plan to go to next year’s Nat’l Senior Games, this is a great low key meet to give competition a try. Strong likelihood that you’ll walk away with a medal or two!

Relay Relay Swimmer Age Group Stroke Split Relay Time Place Date Meet

 

Aug 252014
 

Two meets to tell you about. First, HUGE congratulations to Diana Peroni. She was our lone representative this month at the USMS Long Course Nationals in College Park, Maryland, where she competed in 100 and 200 fly in the 40-44 age group. She did fantastic, best times in the past 5 years for both events. In the 100 fly, she took third and in the 200 fly, second place. This is an astounding accomplishment at Nationals where there were many in her age group and about 1,000 swimmers total at the meet.

Next up is the Modesto Short Course meet on August 23rd that six Swymnut women attended. We saw lots of new team records, some lifetime bests, and some personal bests in the age group from all six swimmers.  All the results for the year can be found in the embedded PDF here.

2014 All Meet Results

Aug 232014
 

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 26: #505 Middle Distance Free - Coach Cokie 
  • Wednesday, Aug 27: #284 Sprint - Coach Susie

Even if you don’t plan to go to next year’s Nat’l Senior Games, this is a great low key meet to give competition a try. Strong likelihood that you’ll walk away with a medal or two!

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.

  • For further information on the Level 1 & 2 Coaching class October 4th, click here.
  • For signing up for the Stroke Clinic October 4th, click here. Cost is $40.
  • For further information on the Level 3 Coaching class December 5th, click here.
