Swimming & Diving
Take responsibility for your own actions and become a
model that others can follow.
"FIND A PLACE WITHIN YOURSELF WHERE SUCCESS AND FAILURE DON'T MATTER, A PLACE WHERE YOU CAN ENGAGE IN BATTLE WITHOUT COMPROMISE." - Coach Jim Steen, Kenyon College Ohio
Trojan Swimming: The Way We Do Things
Our Mission or Goal- To be the Best Team we can be at any given point in time
Our Motto- I will not allow anyone to work harder than myself
- Each member of the Team is an important part of the whole Team
- You must be willing to take yourself where you've never been before
- The word "can't" doesn't exist (can't never did anything)
- You must have the Courage to fail- never be afraid to try (reset)
- You must take Pride in your Self, your Lane, your Team
Encourage, Support, Lead, Commit!
Appreciate your Teammates
Learn the Principles of swimming
The longer you make yourself in the water, the faster you'll swim
The more streamline you are, the faster you'll move thru the water
Reduce drag; increase lift
Balanced body- head in position
Learn the Fundamentals of swimming
Catch, Pull, Accelerate
Steady fluent kick
Obey the Law
Start at the wall; finish at the wall
Backstrokers- know your stroke count
Accelerate at the flags
No breath flags to wall
Good turns every time
Learn to read the clock
Streamline every start and turn
Trust the Coach
Develop a pre-race ritual
Take personal Responsibility for your own success. Ask:
Ø Is this my best?
Ø Would I put my signature on it?
Ø Am I practicing for meet performance?
Ø Am I thinking about the team?
