Competitive swimming CAN be boring. Families can sign-up and fix that problem of low-motivational meets!

0  comments

Monotonous, early season meets can cause motivation to wane.

Competitive swimmers face a long winter season of looking at the black line on the bottom of the pool going back and forth. If drudgery comes knocking, expel it now. 

We like relays, 50-second races, flip turns and team meets as much as anyone — but now is the time to hook up with individual triumphs in longer voyages without lane lines, away from the black line in fresh, open-air competitions with a new set of competitors and friends.

Sign-up for the ISCA Open Water Festival and inject new challenges, increase motivation and widen perspectives.

Families can sign-up and attend the events on their own, without the entire team in tow.

 

Coaches can forward this message to their squads and then watch to see who displays with new vigor and returns with the meet t-shirt!
