All coaches and teachers should start every session with a plan, but sticking to the plan line-by-line doesn't always make for a productive practice.


Buffalo Team Camp

By Glenn Mills to Motivational Articles | Jul 19, 2011 09:28AM

For years, it's been a dream to ride a motorcycle across the country, stopping along the way to visit teams. I figured it would be a good way to see what the real swim teams are doing, but real life has a way of getting in the way of dreams.

Swimming Question of the Week - December 8, 2010

By Glenn Mills to Question of the Week | Dec 08, 2010 12:45PM

Our friend Cullen Jones made an appearance with the Asphalt Green Unified Aquatics swim team this week. Here are a couple pictures showing how the swimmers reacted to him. Hard to look at these without smiling... at least for me.

By Barbara Hummel to Set of the Week | Oct 08, 2010 12:45AM

This week's set provides opportunities to bring the team together by having everyone go on the same sendoff. The drill/kick set is a good chance to get everyone focusing on the same technique points. The main set brings everyone together, but provides challenges for sprinters and distances swimmers alike.
