We are about 3 weeks away from hosting a Fitter and Faster swim clinic at Jenison. A 4-time Olympian and Olympic Gold medalist will be focusing on Freestyle and Backstroke at the clinic at Jenison High School on November 2 & 3!
Session sizes are limited. Please feel free to send along to your teams! Info is below.
Gather round everyone! Yes, you too. It’s time we talk about NCST Winter Season. NCST Swim Season will be here before you know it. Just imagine cold, snowy January and you can sweat it out in the warm humid pool! Good times.
Practices start November 11th.
Same practice times as last year.
Back by popular demand – Early Bird Sign Ups get personalized swim caps.
NEW: We’re capping the team at no more than 165 swimmers.
First time swimmers must attend New Swimmer Evaluation (see below)
Please note: We won’t know the actual meet and championships schedule until the end of this month when we have the league meeting. We’ve published our best guesses, but consider them all tentative.
Session sizes are limited and our whole team could really use help with our starts and turns! We cannot wait for this event and we strongly recommend everyone click the link below to register ASAP! We want all of our swimmers to learn from an Olympic medalist the techniques necessary to improve.
Because they include so many teams, the conference meets are run differently than regular dual meets. We will be competing with many other teams in our half of the West Michigan Swim League. This also means they run a little longer – so be prepared.
At the B meet, there is no medley relay, only a freestyle relay. Swimmers are allowed to swim 1 relay and 2 individual events. However, each team may only enter 1 relay, so only 4 swimmers in each age/gender group will swim in a relay.
Everyone will be entered in their 2 individual events.
Swimmers may only swim events for which they have a seed time.
Because there are several officials at conference meets, disqualifications will be called on the technical aspects of each stroke, i.e., illegal kicks (common in breaststroke and butterfly). Therefore, most swimmers will be entered in freestyle and backstroke events.
Generally, the Championship Meet signals the end of practices for your athlete.
