View Full Version : Do you train with a USA-S Team?

July 25th, 2003, 04:15 PM

I will be making a presentation at the ASCA World Convention in September 2003. Part of the focus of the talk will be about masters swimmers who train with a USA-S team.

If you swim with a USA-S team, could you please take the time to complete this survey? I am especially interested in how you interact with the kids and coaching staff, funny/interesting stories about your experiences, as well as advice/suggestions about how you would like to be coached.

Any input would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you,

Karlyn Pipes-Neilsen
