PASA Alpine Update #11

Hi Team,

Happy Thanksgiving Week!

After a dark and gloomy week things are starting to look up! We will hopefully have normal air by tomorrow or Wednesday. Given that, we will cancel PS, Gold, Silver, Bronze practices today and keep our fingers crossed for tomorrow.

I just spent three days at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs with 45 other coaches from around the country. The focus was on age group swimming and how to make it better so our sport continues to thrive. USA Swimming recognizes programs like ours are critical to the success of swimming at all levels so they want to invest. I learned a lot and will share the most valuable things with our community.
