TPC Weekly Update 1/1

Posted by North Bay Aquatics at Jan 3, 2020 12:45PM PST

Hello

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

WINTER 2020 - Starts Tuesday, Jan. 7th.

2019 - was a great year for the Tuna! I have updated the record board (should be up soon!) and there are a lot of 2019’s on it now. I can’t wait to see what 2020 brings!

HOLIDAY TRAINING - We had to make a couple changes to this weeks workouts (please note below). Over the Holidays we typically have some workouts with our Pre-Sr and Sr team at Redwood High School. These workouts are for swimmers training in the Winter session. There will be TPC coaches to ensure that younger swimmers are not smashed—and, GP1 and 2 swimmers will not be required to swim the full 2 hours. We have:

1/2 Th. 7-9 am. At Redwood
1/3 Fr. 7-9 am. At Redwood
1/4 Sat. 10-noon. At Redwood

MEETS -
1/18,19 ZONE 3 CHAMPIONSHIPS in SANTA ROSA NOW OPEN FOR ONLINE SIGN-UP . This meet does have qualifying times for many of the events (listed on the meet sheet). I will enter relays! Email me with any questions!
2/7-9 VALLEJO C/B/A+ No qualification standards—a great meet for those not doing Zone 3’s or Arizona! Not online yet…
2/15-17 ARIZONA!!!

QUOTE - “I planned out our whole day. First we make snow angels for two hours, and then we’ll go ice skating, and then we’ll eat a whole roll of Tollhouse Cookie Dough as fast as we can, and then to finish, we’ll snuggle.” – Buddy the Elf

See you at the pool!—Happy New Year!, Coach Mike

TPC Weekly Update 12/23

Posted by North Bay Aquatics at Dec 26, 2019 11:07AM PST

Hello-

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

THANKS!!! – A heartfelt thanks from the coaches for the Holiday Gift. Thank you for your generosity! We feel grateful to be a part of such a great community! It was also great to see so many people participating in this season’s cookie exchange—nice work Tuna!

HOLIDAY TRAINING – Over the Holidays we typically have some workouts with our Pre-Sr and Sr team at Redwood High School. These workouts are for swimmers training in the Winter session. There will be TPC coaches to ensure that younger swimmers are not smashed—and, GP1 and 2 swimmers will not be required to swim the full 2 hours. This year, we have:

12/26 Th. 7-9 am.
12/27 Fr. 7-9 am.
12/28 Sat. 10-noon
12/30 Mon. 7-9am.
1/2 Th. 2:30-4:30 pm.
1/3 Fr. 2:30-4:30 pm.
1/4 Sat. 10-noon

MEETS -
1/18,19 ZONE 3 CHAMPIONSHIPS in SANTA ROSA NOW OPEN FOR ONLINE SIGN-UP This meet does have qualifying times for many of the events (listed on the meet sheet). I will enter relays! Email me with any questions!
2/7-9 VALLEJO C/B/A+ No qualification standards—a great meet for those not doing Zone 3’s or Arizona! Not online yet…
2/15-17 ARIZONA!!! If you are going, make sure you are on the online doc

QUOTE - If I am training on a holiday, most likely nobody else is – and that gives me the edge. If I’m supposed to run for 20 minutes and I get back and it’s only been 19:34, I’m going to jog in a circle for 26 more seconds. I’m never going to cut it short. –
Carli Lloyd

See you at the pool!—Happy Holidays!, Coach Mike
