A message from Simon Burnett
Congratulations to the whole team. Everyone contributes to the competition and the team spirit which produces the trophy winners.
Commitment got these winners their results. Not just coming to practice, but committing to the ideas, techniques and skills that their coach has been teaching them. The difference between an average swimmer and a great swimmer is the focus one has on the details EVERY SINGLE stroke in practice, from W/U to swim down. They don't just focus when their coach is watching, or when they're doing a drill, they remember what their coach has said, high-elbow, head position, kick, rotation, etc. They focus on it the second they touch the water to the second they get the touch. This is what great athletes do. Good luck this year, focus on the little things and remember, everyone can be a winner in their own way, by perfecting their stroke, doing a PB or attending practice regularly. It's good to win but it's also about taking part and having fun.
Many congratulations to all who make Thame Swimming Club so vibrant and friendly.
