Swim & Dive Teams MAC PENGUIN SWIM & DIVE TEAMS Penguin Swim & Dive Team registration: All interested participants MUST SIGN UP IN PERSON in the spring. Please see the MAC website, mac-stl.org, or the Cherry Diamond magazine for dates and times. Introduction Welcome to MAC’s Swimming and Diving Team! You will be asked to give your time and talent. In turn, the swimming and diving representatives (reps) welcome your questions and suggestions. We hope these pages will give you much of the information you need. TEAM GOALS: Learning. Our goal for each swimmer and diver is to learn and improve continually. A swimmer’s progress is easily measured by comparing lap times after every race. If the times are faster each week, the swimmer is improving, even though he/she may consistently finish in last place. In diving, progress is more difficult to measure. A diver’s meet performance is scored by judges, who sometimes differ. In general, however, an increase in the total points on a dive indicates improvement. Improvement, for the swimmer or the diver, is not easily achieved. Hard work and attention to instructions are required. Competition. We believe competition can be a positive learning experience. We encourage individual effort as well as team performance and good sportsmanship. Fun. The team situation provides fun for the participants as they build friendships and team spirit. There is also an awards banquet at the end of the season. Exercise. Swimming is one of the best forms of exercise. Any swimmer who conscientiously participates in practice is guaranteed to get “in shape.”

SWIM TEAM GUIDELINES Lessons v. Team In general, youngsters who do not have a good grasp of the fundamentals of the freestyle and backstroke would do better to master these skills in lessons before joining the team. Otherwise, they may quickly become discouraged if they lag far behind others in their age group. Even for many team members, refresher lessons are very helpful. These can be set up individually with the coaches. Practice Procedures Practices include two basic elements: teaching and repetition drill. A typical practice has a warm-up (usually a slow, relatively long-distance swim), stroke drills (emphasizing some specific lessons) and sprints or distance swimming (to develop speed and endurance). Parents should be aware that group practice precludes individual attention. The coach will make every effort to point out errors, give tips on improvement and teach the strokes. However, quick reminders are not always enough to change a child’s technique. If your child is having some difficulty with a stroke, feel free to discuss this with the coach. They may share some pointers with you or suggest lessons. Improvement comes with practice; regular attendance is beneficial to the child and the team. Please have your child to practice on time. Repeating instructions several times for the benefit of latecomers wastes coaching time. Notes on practicing It is important that swimmers practice the techniques they learn all the time, not just during the specific stroke drill Although the coach will remind them, you can reinforce this idea too. This means that the time to practice flip turns is every time the swimmer completes a lap, and the time to practice starts is every time a swimmer goes off the block. The best swimmers also practice on their own time to perfect starts, turns, finishes and stroke techniques.

Swim & Dive Teams DIVING TEAM GUIDELINES

Practices The MAC sponsors a COMPETITIVE dive team. The experience of the diver is not important. Novice divers are welcome and encouraged to join the team! Practices are held in the mornings and some afternoons. It is expected that all divers attend daily practice, and participate in a minimum of THREE dual meets AND conference. Private diving lessons are available for those who are unable or do not wish to participate in the meets. Practice procedure In diving, progress is less easily measured. A diver’s meet performance is scored by judges, who sometimes differ. In general, however, an increase in the total points on a dive indicates improvement. Improvement, for the swimmer or the diver, is not easily achieved. Hard work and attention to instructions are required. Parents should be aware that group practice precludes individual attention. The coach will make every effort to keep practice groups small, point out errors, give tips on improvement and teach new dives. However, quick reminders are not always enough to change a child’s technique. If your child is having some difficulty with a dive, feel free to discuss this with the coach. She/he may share some pointers with you or suggest lessons. Improvement comes with practice; regular attendance is beneficial to the child and the team. Please make every effort to have your child to practice on time. Repeating instructions several times for the benefit of the latecomers wastes coaching time.

PENGUINS DIVE COACH Lauren Brunner Head Dive Coach When younger, Lauren dove year-round for Clayton Diving Alliance and Lightning Diving. She competed nationally on both 1 and 3 meter springboards and platform. As a high school diver at Ladue Horton Watkins, Lauren placed in the top five at the Missouri High School State Diving Championship. Lauren later went on to compete as a Division I diver at the University of Denver. Lauren has coached for Clayton Diving Alliance, the City of Clayton, and MICDS, and has coached many kids who have competed in state championships.

JUNIOR TENNIS PROGRAMS

Tennis

TOTS TENNIS (Ages 5-7) These tennis classes are geared to give young kids an enthusiasm for the game as well as to develop their tennis skills! With the energy, knowledge and patience of our experienced tennis professionals, your child is certain to have fun while learning how to play. We are committed to being good coaches, imparting knowledge, and improving each child’s physical skills and tennis ability. Besides these tennis objectives, one of our main goals is to let tennis improve your child’s self-esteem. To achieve this, we ascribe to the following coach/student formula: MUTUAL RESPECT + MUTUAL EFFORT = SUCCESS & SELF-ESTEEM FUTURE STARS (Ages 8-11) QUALITY COACHING + QUALITY EFFORT + QUALITY PRACTICE = CONFIDENCE & QUALITY PLAY We have classes available for Beginner/Intermediate and Advanced players in this age group. During this age period, kids are likely to have dramatic elevations in their tennis game. Having them learn the proper techniques, advancing those techniques based on their level of play, as well as equipping them with tactical knowledge, will improve their tennis and increase their interest. Our goal is to take each student and build upon their tennis abilities in order to advance them to the next echelon of their game. The Beginner/ Intermediate and Advanced classes will vary, but all of this age group will learn how to develop their shots, learn how to hit balls in varying situations, work on core stability and gain a better understanding of tactics. And, when they are ready, they will be introduced to competitive play outside of the Club. With the above “quality” formula in use, we expect the students’ games to expand greatly during this period of their tennis development as they learn more advance techniques, and we believe they, and their parents, will be pleased! (Must be approved by a tennis pro.) MIDDLE SCHOOL JUNIOR STARS (Ages 11-14) TENNIS = A GAME FOR A LIFETIME During this age period, kids will usually play tennis because they want to be more competitive, and/or, they just like the game! Whichever the reason, THESE ARE THE BEST YEARS TO PLAY TENNIS! These are the most formative years for tennis players, and what a child learns now will stick with them later in life, even if they set aside their racquet for awhile. There is a reason tennis is called the “Game for a Lifetime!” We have classes available for both Intermediate/Beginner and Advanced players in this middle school age group. Our Intermediate/Beginner Classes will be made up those who enjoy the game, and players moving toward the Advanced class. The emphasis in these classes will be the same as those for the Future Stars Classes. However, the skills and strategies will be more advanced and the students will be asked to involve themselves in problem solving and decision making. Competitive games will be more match-pointoriented. All students will be encouraged to tryout for their school teams and to play in novice tournaments. Our Advanced Classes will also include more advanced tactical, technical, and mental skills such as developing offensive and defensive game styles, using different spins, and improving concentration. (Must be approved by a tennis pro.) PERFORMANCE TENNIS (For high school and college players and high performance competitors) These classes will be divided into two levels similar to the way in which college teams are divided into Varsity and JV. The purpose of two levels is to guarantee the best-matched competition for all players enrolled in the class. Join these classes to prepare yourself for tournament play as well as high school or college tennis. We are prepared to get you in shape, and help you become match tough and the best you can be! Our pros have the knowledge base and experience to make this program the best in the St. Louis area. If you would like to participate, please contact Kim Steinmetz, ksteinmetz@mac-stl.org.

**The Future Star and Tots classes use the new “Quick Start” tennis ball to help young players keep the ball in play, learn more easily and have more success.
