It was nice to meet you at the ASCA World Coaches Club in San Diego, CA. As spurred by our conversation I thought it would be good to follow up with a letter of appreciation of the product Super Swim.
We are a dual YMCA/USS team with novice to national level swimmers. There are the typical pool space problems that seem to plague all swimming teams, but with our program we also have the problem of competing long course with only training in yards. This was a “deal with it” situation before the use and implementation of the Super Swim. I planned our training preparations for long course with a great emphasis on the use of super swims as the “tool” to carry us over the barrier of “yards”. The Super Swims gave my athletes the confidence they needed to compete in long course because of the continuous swimming without the turns. I fashioned sets like those used in long course based on times/intervals appropriate to long course times. It was an invaluable tool that will be used even smarter the next time around.
Thank you for the ability to better prepare my athletes for the competition they face in whatever course they are in. I highly recommend the “tool” to anyone serious about long course training in short course facilities.
