Coach's Message

Hi DAM Swimmers,

What a wonderful weekend it was!!!   Cool weather on Saturday and Sunday made for some refreshing time outside.  

I wanted to take this time to let you know that starting Saturday, October 2nd,  DAM will host a Coach’s Hour from 9-10AM on Saturday mornings.  This will be a great time to get some individualized stroke work on the themed stroke for that Saturday.  More detail on specifics in next Monday's message!

In the past, DAM members arriving at the pool signed in. It was a regular part of workout for some - make your way to the podium and sign in on the sheet. During the pandemic, this practice was curtailed. I would like to bring back this practice - for my own benefit.  There are a lot of DAM swimmers here, and I want to be able to place names, faces, and the associated swimming lane.  This will help me tremendously in getting to know you as a swimmer and make the best swim experience possible. Starting on Monday, September 28 we will have a sign-in sheet available for members -- it would be greatly appreciated (but not required) if you sign in for practice.

I have had the opportunity to meet many of you, and I look forward to getting to know each and every DAM swimmer. I appreciate everyone’s historical, institutional, and personal knowledge/stories. This is one of the many things that makes DAM so great.  

See you on the pool deck!

Coach Steve
