Friday – Starts, Turns, and Relays – Exhibition Swims – Friday Fun Day

GregWe start our Friday morning like every other day, with a review of previous days.
We also spend some time working on start technique, finishing a race, continue working on turns,  and spend a little time on relay starts and finishes.

At 10:00 each of our groups has a chance to show off a little at our Exhibition Swims. All our swimmers will do one or two laps of freestyle and one or two laps of their favorite strokes. A few of our swimmers may even opt to do an individual medley. We end our exhibition swims with a perennial favorite – the coaches relay. All our campers get a chance to cheer for their favorite coaches.

After the relays, we move over to the lunch area for our pizza party where pizza, watermelon, and Gatorade are all on the menu.

After our lunch break, we head back to the pool for Friday Fun Day.
The campers are allowed to swim anywhere in the pool, including use of the diving boards.
We also have games in the shallow end for those who wish, and plenty of time to practice on the starting blocks.
For those who are too tired to swim another lap, we have an age appropriate video, such as Finding Nemo or Shrek in the team room.  We’re ready to go at 4:00, as always, but Friday pickup is flexible. If you are planning an out-of-town weekend and want to leave early, you can come by any time after lunch. Just let your coach know if you are planning an early pickup.
