Sharing Session by Coach Heng

IMG_2354 IMG_2355 IMG_2356

Coach Heng held a sharing session yesterday, in the Mini Theatre, Level 4 of the Tower Block, at 2pm. Parents and swimmers alike, came to hear what he had learnt in Bangkok. He talked about being able to swim faster by using the right technique for each stroke. Then he went through what the ideal techniques for each stroke are and demonstrated various mistakes that swimmers of all ages make.

Finally, he also talked about how to calculate one’s Target Heart Rate and what are the percentages of a Target Heart Rate translated into swimming. The details of this will be added to our Swimmer’s Log, which will be given to each swimmer. This is a work in progress and the Committee hopes to have it ready by the middle of October.

Memo – Application Form for the PSC Swim Team

Swim Houses

The Swimming Section Committee has decided to create 3 Houses for our Swim Team. All swimmers have been divided into 3 Houses (please refer to the chart). We have kept families together and have tried to keep the swimmers fairly distributed according to ability. If a swimmer is not with their siblings, please let us know as soon as possible so that changes can be made.

The Houses have not been named and are currently called A, B and C. The swimmers have the option of naming their House – please note that vulgar language will not be permitted and the Committee has the right to veto a name.

The Houses will compete annually and the one with the most points will win a special prize at the end of each year. Competition starts in January and ends in December.

Points are accumulated by:

  • Time Trials – heat winners (placed 1, 2, 3) will be awarded points valued at 12, 6, 3 – hint: the more swimmers each House has, the more points you can accumulate
  • Swim Meets – each point awarded to a swimmer during the swim meet will translate into points for the House – only the recognized Club swim meets will count
  • Good behavior during training – Coaches will have the discretion to award points for the best behavior (5 points), most effort (10 points), good strokes (5 points)
  • Houses will compete against each other once a month during a special training on Friday, 4.30 pm – each Coach will be responsible for their House and this is randomly assigned – hint: the more swimmers from that House that attends the Friday 4.30pm training, the more points the House can accumulate – this training will comprise of swim games and relays
  • Points will be awarded for the annual Best Swimmer – Male and Female, in each age group

This is an ongoing idea and every one is encouraged to submit their ideas to make it work and for us all to have fun.

We will start points accumulation at this Friday’s time trial. You have been warned!
