Coach Crosby will be running two, two hour practices. 8-10AM-This practice is for the girls who were in Coach Burch's group last year. 10AM-12PM: This practice is for the girls who were in Coach Crosby's group last year, as well as all new swimmers. Please note that this is NOT how the groups will be arranged for the entire season. There are already some girls who were in Coach Crosby's group last year who will be in Coach Burch's group this year. I also know of some freshmen who will certainly be in Coach Burch's group this year, however this is how we are organizing the first day only. This will also give us a good idea of who is ready to move up a level.

  "Persistence can change failure into extraordinary achievement." Matt Biondi  


"Being your best is not so much about overcoming the barriers other people place in front of you as it is about overcoming the barriers we place in front of ourselves. It has nothing to do with how many times you win or lose. It has no relation to where you finish in a race or whether you break world records. But it does have everything to do with having the vision to dream, the courage to recover from adversity and the determination never to be shifted from your goals." Kieren Perkins
