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

TPC Weekly Update 12/10

Posted by North Bay Aquatics at Dec 11, 2019 11:02AM PST

Hello

PRACTICE Normal schedule this week. There are 2 more weeks in the Fall session. A reminder that Fridays we will combine Groups 1 and 2 from 3:30-4:30 and Group 3, 4:15-5:45.

JO RECAP This past weekend was one of the fastest 14-un meets in California, the Pacific Swimming Junior Olympics. The Tuna were in fine form in San Jose; and, despite the wintry weather, we had many standout swims!

  • The relays were awesome with many swimmers getting their first taste of Junior Olympic racing. Congrats Storm, Dylan, Blake, Lily, Marina, and Zara!
  • William Canori had a stellar meet, winning the 500 Free in comeback fashion while setting a new NBA Team Record, 5:44.26. He also ranked Tuna all-time top 3 in the 200 Free, 2:12.33 (3rd)
  • Piper Morrell made a Final at her first JO’s, smoking a 38.2 in her 50 Breast
  • Cameron Forbes won the 50 Back! and narrowly missed breaking 30 in her 50 Fly (30.04—knocking off one of the oldest record on the Board (Suzannah Miller from 1978!)
  • Esme Palmer made Finals in her 50 Free and was a critical component to the successful 11-12 Girls Relays
  • Fiona Bell broke 6min. in her 500 Free, almost cracked a minute in her 100 Free (00.7), and brought the Free Relay home in style.
  • Overall it was a great weekend for the TUNA!

HUSKY INVITE Our Senior team was in action up in Seattle, with many best times and Team Records—and set a new Pacific Swimming Record in the 15-16 Boys 200 Medley Relay 1:24.45 (Luca Gissendaner, Justin Wong, Nicky Glenn, and Bryce Roberts)—3 of those boys spent many hours in the TPC pools honing their craft when they were younger! Hopefully, many of you will be a part of our team to experience the fun travel meets your swimmers can experience as they progress through the program!

ARIZONA please get on this google doc if you are planning to attend the meet!

HOLIDAY TRAINING as mentioned above, the Fall season ends Dec. 20th, but we will have some workouts available for our young swimmers over the break. Details are still being hammered out but last year they were at Redwood High in the mornings. Stay tuned for more details!

*WINTER 2020 — * Winter goes from 1/7 – 3/13. There will be a separate informational email out soon, so please hold your Winter questions until after that goes out.
