To help accomplish this goal, SDMS is doing an Index Card Challenge all summer.
Each swimmer that swam in the first meet set goal cards with their coaches and posted the cards in the hallway outside of the pool. Following every swim meet coaches will revisit those goals and review with the swimmers the best ways to either reach those goals by end of summer, or set new goals if needed. Each card has:
- Name (on top of the card)
- Events swam at the first meet
- Times in those events from the first meet
- Goal times for those same events for the SDMS Championship Meet
- Any other goals in other events throughout season.
If your swimmer didn’t swim in the first meet but is actively practicing (and/or returning from a family vacation), please still complete this card and set goals for their main events and any other goals.
The best part? As kids reach their goals, we will have them update the cards. This means our athletes are always focused on improvement because their goals continue to adapt to their changing skills.
This Index Card Challenge may seem like a small thing, but it’s been proven to make a BIG impact. We can’t wait to see your goals!
