Have a nice day,
Great week of tough training. Lots of challenging sets, many best personal times, and fantastic team effort! Keep up your hard work, AG1!
The AG1 practice schedule is posted on our website: https://www.longislandswimming.com/practices.html.
Monday through Friday, AG1 will have a regular practice schedule with dryland included. We have a slight change for Sunday, 4/23. The AG1 will have practice from 9:45 to 11:45 am that day.
I attached the updated AG1 entry report and LI Challenge meet announcement to my email. Please review the entries with your athletes and let me know if you have any requests for changes by the end of today.
I also attached preliminary entries and meet info for the Spring Kickoff meet. Feel free to email me if you have any questions or concerns.
As the weather gets warmer, I want to remind your swimmers of the importance of hydration. Proper hydration is critical for athletes that want to feel and perform their best. Water is the easiest and most affordable way to hydrate, and it:
• Improves athletic performance and reduces recovery time
• Helps every system in the body function better
• Minimizes risk of injury and muscle cramping
• Better regulates the body’s temperature
I also suggest a sports drink like Gatorade for long swim practice that runs over 45 minutes. Sipping a sports drink throughout the practice will help maintain proper electrolyte balance, which will help athletes avoid things like cramping, fatigue, and loss of coordination that come from mild dehydration. The carbohydrate in sports drinks also helps refill swimmers' glycogen stores, which rapidly deplete during these longer, more sustained efforts. Please remind your kids to mark their water bottles and sports drinks to avoid confusion on the pool deck.
Have a lovely week,
I hope you had a wonderful Easter & Passover weekend with your family.

I still need to include many of your responses on whether your athlete will participate at the ISCA meet in August. If you are not sure if your athlete qualified for this meet, please email me, and I will get back to you.
Enjoy this beautiful day,
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
