USA Swimming has a lot of great information for parents.  Check out educational articles and information for parents on the USA Swimming Website!

Nutrition Information from USA Swimming:  Nutrition Expert in 60 Minutes
                                                               What should I eat after practice?

Why should I warm down?  After a race or intense practice lactate acid continues to build in your muscles.  We, the coaches, tell you the importance of cooling/warming down all the time, but now you can see through the charts below just how important cooling down is for muscle recovery.
Below is a list of DVD's for our swimmers to watch in the comfort of home. They are all recently done and filled with excellent information.  If you would like to borrow one, please email Coach Kaeley. Swimmers will be able to borrow the DVD's for one week at a time.
  1. Core Body Strength Training,USA Swimming
  2. Outside the Box: Open Water Swimming, USA Swimming
  3. Posture, Line, & Balance: The Foundation of Championship Winning Swimming, Richard Quick and Milt Nelms
