    I simpley canít thank Chris Ritter enough for helping me get back on track. He has been my trainer for a couple years and has been there for me through tough times ie.. family crisis, emergency surgery, and unpredictable weather fatalities. Iíve had trainers in the past but Chris is one of a kind. With his passion and dedication to help athletes and myself reach our goals to become stronger has made me have more belief in myself. Itís like when unexpected things in life happen he has helped me become strong again, fast again, and smooth and efficient in my strokes. Iím almost 100% again in my strength and Iím definitely swimming strong!! Thanks Chris.. Although you may not ever see this blog!! LOL💪🏼🏊🏼*♀️💦

  4. Community Outreach

    by , November 14th, 2017 at 07:29 AM (Questions from Coaches)
    Q: My Masters swim club wants to get more involved with the local community and host an event. What types of community events should our Masters program consider?

    A: Being a good citizen in the community can be rewarding for your members and can build goodwill with your swimming facility. Hosting community outreach events at your pool will require varying degrees of logistical planning, depending on the size and scope of the event. It's important to assemble a support team that shares in the planning and execution of the events. Don't try to do everything yourself. Have a goal of giving ownership to many volunteers. It will add to the overall success of the event when many hands are working as one.

    Examples of community outreach events requiring pools:

    Adult learn-to-swim lessons
    Stroke development clinics
    Special Olympics
    Senior Games
    Police and Fire Games
    Wounded Warrior Project, Warrior Games

    Consider adding the USMS Fitness Series to your schedule of events. These events may be swum in your own pool during a regular practice session and may serve as a team bonding opportunity with the added benefit of fundraising for the USMS Swimming Saves Lives Foundation and the local charity of your choice.
