Rising Tide summer competition season coming up

| March 13, 2014

COSHOCTON – With the wrap-up of the high school swim season, several high school swimmers have returned to Rising Tide Aquatic Club to continue competitive swim training. Summer competition season is just around the corner and the swimmers want to maintain their competitive edge. As these elite swimmers return to club swimming, they not only continue training, but they also encourage the younger swimmers.

One method Rising Tide uses to help prepare swimmers for the competition season is to hold “mock” swim meets. Club members compete with each other as if they are at an actual swim meet. Inexperienced competitive swimmers discover how they perform in a competition situation: From pre-race jitters, to dropping time in an event, to how they need to improve in specific events. Older, more seasoned swimmers, participate in the mock swim meet to help encourage the younger swimmers. They also provide role models for younger swimmers as to the level of discipline and sportsmanship required to achieve success in the pool.

Rising Tide Aquatic Club’s summer competition season begins Monday, April 21.  Registration dates are Tuesday, April 8 and Friday, April 11. Check the website calendar for specific times at cyrtswim.tripod.com
