Young Swimmers Excel in Junior Talent Squad

Article from https://vic.swimming.org.au/article.php?group_id=8203&id=2

DVE swimmers participated on Feb 4th, at MLC Aquatic, the Junior Talent Squad met for their first workshop, lead by Platinum Coach Ian Pope and State Head Coach Rohan Taylor. The squad is made up of over 40 swimmers, aged 11-12 for girls and 12-13 for boys, were selected based on their performances at the 2017 Victorian Age Championships.

Ian Pope gave a presentation on the SECRETS of Success for Swimming, an acronym focused on seven key points – Set Goals, Excellence, Concentration, Responsibility, Effort, Team, and Self-Belief. By considering each of these points, swimmers can ensure that they are taking the right steps with their training and their attitude towards the sport, which will allow them to increase their success.

Olympian Linley Frame also gave a presentation, covering time management, and working with Swimming Victoria’s school planners. The talk covered the benefits of planning, including the ability to analyse your past schedules and identify areas where you may be wasting time, highlighting areas of conflict, and developing strategies to overcome problems with your workload.

Planning things in advance saves time and reduces stress, which leads to healthier and happier minds and bodies. Applying skills you’ve learned in swimming, like goal setting, time management and working with others, to other areas of your life can help you to keep on top of things.

The workshop also included a two-hour pool session, focused on starts, turns and underwater skills. Seven home coaches attended and assisted with these sessions, allowing each athlete the benefit of feedback and development.

The next Junior Talent Squad workshop is planned for March 5th, with the location and time still to be confirmed.
