  3. What's your gift?

    by , December 18th, 2018 at 04:34 PM (Questions from Coaches)
    The holiday season is a wonderful time of year to celebrate the joy of giving to and sharing with others. Coaches give of themselves throughout the year striving to make the experience of swimming the best it can be for those they lead.

    What gift do you have that you share with your swimmers? Donít confuse giving with gifting. You give your time. You gift what you do with that time. You give a workout. You gift the promise of hope. You give the swimmers feedback on stroke technique. You gift the swimmers self-confidence and pride of accomplishment.

    This holiday, realize what gift you have that you can share now and into the future. Resolve to be better tomorrow than you were today. In sharing your gifts and enriching others, both giver and receiver benefit. Wishing you and your swimmers a happy and healthy new year.
