Coach’s Corner

Here’s some tips and reminders from the coaching staff:

  1. Please remind your swimmers to rinse off before entering the pool
  2. If your swimmer has long hair, they may want a hair tie or a swim cap.  We do have red swim caps for sale in the office for $5 each
  3. A spare pair of goggles is never a bad idea.  We do not have any loaners available in the office and they inevitably break or get lost.

Practices Start Tonight!

Well, it’s finally here, NCST Winter Season starts tonight.

Welcome back returning swimmers, hello to new swimmers!  See you tonight!

Practice Times for this season:

  • Gold Group – 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM
  • Silver Group – 6:00 PM – 7:15 PM
  • Bronze Group – 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM

Note: Every season we have to balance the training groups depending on who signs up. It’s possible you trained with a different group last season and will be moved up or down this season. We won’t know until everyone has registered, but please be flexible. We want to keep similar ability and ages together.

First Week & Bronze Group Coaches

Please bear with us this first week or two.  It’s always a little crazy until everyone settles into a routine.  Also our Bronze coaches are training this week for their State Swim meet.  We’ll have some substitute coaches this first week and will settle in next week.

Looking for something a little extra?  Jenison Aquatics is offering a Fitter Faster clinic.  See below for details.

Fitter and Faster Clinic at Jenison Aquatics – 11/24 & 11/25

Jenison is proud to announce that we have partnered with the Fitter and Faster Swim Tour to bring you all a  two-day swim camp  focused on the fastest parts of every race: the starts and turns!

This event will be at the Jenison High School Aquatics Center on November 24th and 25th.  We have a short week of practices this week, so here’s a chance to get some more pool time.
