To All FAST Families,
On Monday Septemebr 15 the High School Will be removing the pump at the pool; last week the motor was removed and taken to a shop for repairs. The pump however looks to be more serious. As a
result we will still be out of the pool for swimmig. I am hoping to know by the end of the week what the extent of the damage is to the pump and how long it will take to fix. In the mean time we will
still be doing dryland activities and you will still have the option to swim with Renagade Aquatis in Escondido; see below for the address.
Thank you for your patience and suport.
Hello FAST Families,
As many of you have heard and seen, the pump at the pool is not working. The school is working on a trying to get it fixed as soon as possible. As a result we have not been able to get in the
water this week. After talking to the Facility Director yesterday evening, the plan is to have the pool up and running by next Friday.
This week and for next week we will be doing dry land training. I have heard some of the comments that we are not a dry land activity and should "always be in the water." Swimming is a
physical activity that works the whole body. As coaches we strive to provide our swimmers a high level of fitness. Part of that fitness is being a complete athlete. In looking back at this past year
I have been evaluating our performance as a team and trying to determine what we can do to help improve our program and help our swimmers become better and faster swimmers. One of the areas that I
have seen that need improvement is the strength of our swimmers, that can be accomplished through dry land.
Ask yourself how many sit-ups, push-ups and pull-ups can you do? What is the your cardiovascular level, how well can you maintain a specific pace when swimming and racing? What is your fitness
level as an athlete? We have a great opportunity to start improving that fitness level as a team. Dry land training is not exclusive to only the land or dry sports. It is also essential for the water
It would be great to see as many of our swimmers at practice doing the dry land portion that we do when we are in the water. That being said, if you feel the need to also be in the water, we do
have an opportunity to swim. John McGlynn who is the coach for Renegade Aquatics has offered our swimmers to come over and practice with his team. Some of you may know some of their swimmers
when they have come to our practices when their pool was down. They practice at the boys and girls club in Escondido at 835 15th, it is at the corner of 15th and Tulip. If you go please park on the
street since the parking lot is for their staff and members. Go in the front door and let them know you are there for swim practice and ask how to get to the pool.
Water polo players and divers are always welcome to come and participate in our dry land.
Please continue to check swimfast.com and Facebook for updates.
