MAY INTRASQUAD MEET WED, MAY 18TH

I want to thank all who participated in the Intrasquad meet yesterday.  It was a great success.  I really enjoyed watching everyone race and cheer each other on.  There were a lot of great swims and I thought the team was spirited and excited.  Thank you to all the parents who came to volunteer and to watch.  Results have been posted on the summer meet schedule page so check them out!

EVENTS:

SWIM ACROSS AMERICA with Olympians Elisabeth Beisel and Craig Beardsley, April 23rd
The lucky Piranhas who attended the clinic, led by Elisabeth and Craig, had a lot of fun and learned so much from such experienced swimmers.  For their part, the swimmers did very well – great swims, plenty of attention to improvement techniques, and a true sense of respect for their Olympian guests (who were also lots of fun).  Questions, autographs and photos followed the pool clinic.
Thanks to all the families for supporting Swim Across America Fairfield County and thank you to the SAA FC for putting on this wonderful event.

Olympic (2020 Tokyo) Silver medal winner Paige Madden visited the Piranhas on Sat 3/5!

           11/under swimmers 

Paige Madden was our guest on Friday and Saturday, March 4th and 5th.  On Friday night Paige visited with swimmers informally after a later practice, then she had dinner with all the coaches at the Y.  At 10:45 sharp on Saturday, Paige suited up and led off with questions for the 7-11 year old swimmers, then dove in the pool and invited the swimmers to join her.  They all were so attentive and followed Paige’s instructions very specifically and enthusiastically.  The session ended at noon, the swimmers got changed and Paige met them (and the newly arrived 12/Overs) in the Y lobby for comments and tips about growing up a swimmer and of course, swimming in college and the Olympics. After signing caps and photocards, and having photos taken, Paige was back on the pool deck with the 12/Over swimmers.  The afternoon session was a real treat to witness.  The swimmers really had some fun and learned so much!  Paige’s comments and instruction were very relatable to this age group, and the swimmers really connected with her.  We all hope we can invite her back again in the future.
