News and Announcements

Level 1 did an amazing job at their first time trial and for a few, their first time racing competitively. We saw a number of awesome races and the kids did great with learning about how a swim meet works. At practice, we will continue to work on technique and diving, and we will be starting flip turns within the next week! We are so proud of Level 1 for their hard work and racing for the first time.

Level 2 had a great first showing, especially as their first-time racing in a long, long time! This was a very different meet with social distancing and everyone did great and I couldn’t be prouder of everyone. Level 2 not only had a fun time being at a meet again but knew to listen carefully to the new rules, to be apart in the stands before and after races and, of course, go fast when they were in the pool! Great races were swam for the 50 and 25 yard events and although we have some things to work on, I’m very happy with how everyone did. Can’t wait to keep working on making our strokes better and getting stronger with each practice. Let’s keep going Level 2!

Level 3 Titans had 11 swimmers race on Friday in their first meet of this season. There were outstanding swims from each of our swimmers showing us they were ready to race! Ameika Paris raced very well, placing first in all 3 of her events. Vivienne Cabin bravely tried out her newly learned backstroke flipturn and came in 1st in her heat for the 50 back. Maximus Carter,Gretchen Cenczyk, Marco D’Angelo, and Mackenzie Vetter-Higgins all scored best times in events they swam. We are proud of everyone from level 3, keep up the good work.

Level 7-8 Finished up our 3rd time trial with some more great swims and over 40 more personal best swims. We have approached the meets as an opportunity to race. We have seen some great improvement as well as seeing things we can work on or have forgotten over the long lay off. As we get into the next set of time trials in Nov we want to be working on race strategy and get back to our underwater work.

Titans Time Trial Success!

Posted by Scott Vanderzell at Oct 12, 2020 8:10AM PDT ( 0 Comments )

The Titans are truly happy to be able to return to swimming and finally RACING! Last week the Senior group was able to open up our time trial format with some tremendous swims with over 60 personal best times coming off an 8 month lay off of racing. Then they followed up in the second time time trails session with nearing 50 more personal best times. It is awesome to see the kids racing again and working towards something.
What an amazing display the level 4, 5, & 6 Swimmers put on at the TTSC Time Trial #2 on Friday 10/09/2020! Some amazing races, times drops, stroke improvements, and actual cheering!

Level 4 had amazing swims by all in attendance and a few disqualifications to work on eliminating. Having the opportunity to race again was fantastic! So many Level 4 swimmers made great improvements from last season it is great to see hard work paying off!
Level 5 did an awesome job at their first time trial. There were a number of best times and only a few DQs, which shows we are focusing on the important things within our strokes, turns and walls. We are proud of all the hard work level 5 has been putting into practice over the last couple months and are excited to see how we continue to improve over the next few weeks. Great job Level 5, keep up the good work!

Level 6 also had some amazing swims as well as some areas needing attention, like 2 hand touches and continuous motion into our backstroke turns. The Challenges of swimming without flags for months has shown us how practice matters! Overall amazing job for ALL OF LEVEL 6!

Special thanks for the amazing job by all who pitched in and helped!We are fortunate to have the ability to run these time trials and we all need to now look hard at what we can do better in practice to continue to improve and grow!
