Thanks Nadine!!!

I am hoping to make your clinic this year!!!

So Nadine, this year the clinic is freestyle and backstroke? Or something else?

It can be long axis swimming, since last year it was short axis swimming. I have had the request to focus on starts and turns, transitions for all strokes. Sorry, I won't be proficient in the New Breastroke (cheating) pull-out.

I am up for suggestions...

E-mail me at NDAYPT@aol.com.

The swim camp will be on Saturday afternoon, with the meet on Sunday.

Keep on swimming...Swimming for Life.

does anyone know if this is the same week end as girl's basketball state. If it is, it is impossible to get a hotel room.

For everyone in down state. Is anyone going over to Indy for their big meet the week end of Oct 21-23?

September 26th, 2005, 01:44 PM
The 3rd and 4th are the Girls AA State Finals. If you can't find or get a room let me know and we will find someone's house you can stay at. I have 2 extra rooms and 3 couches scattered around the house, so just let me know.

It is also the same weekend as Y-district for the Illini district, which will be held at Normal West HS.

Would like to go to Indy, but between U of I marching band contest the weekend before and Bands of America in Indy the weekend after, I really, really need that weekend free. Sad though because I enjoyed the Indy meet the last two years.

I think it would be great if the camp focused on transition turns for IM. or long axis. I've never done the camp because the lack of hotel rooms.
