Yorkshire Sprints & Teams & Training Changes

Hi All,

This weekend is the second round of the Yorkshire's and it's time to get ready to Sprint!!!!!  Remember, in sprints it is vital to get all the elements of the race right.  If you get your start, transition and finish spot on this can be the milliseconds needed to move up a few places in the results.  Also in the 50m sprints it is your chance to shine and earn your place in selection for relays.
 
Training Changes
Regional Development & Regional Performance
Friday 10th February - 19:00 - 20:00 (1 hour only - no land training)
Saturday 11th February - No Training (Squad Competing at Sheffield)
Monday 13th February - No AM Training (Recovery)
 
The schedule for the weekend can be viewed by using the link below:
Yorkshire's Schedule
 
If there is anyone down in the programme who cannot compete can you please let the coaches know before the weekend so we can pass on the information to the team managers.  Please remember it is City of Leeds policy to arrive 30 minutes before the warm up and check in with the team manager.  Team managers have the right to pull swimmers out if they arrive late as the Club can be fined if a swimmer does not show for their race.
 
Saturday Am
Arrive: 07:30
Warm Up: 08:00
Start: 09:00
 
Saturday Pm
Arrive: 13:00
Warm Up: 13:30
Start: 14:30
 
Sunday Am Teams
Arrive: 08.00
Warm Up: 08.30
Start:  09.30
 
Sunday Pm Teams
Arrive: 12:30
Warm Up: 13:00
Start: 14:00

Please see the blog post on 24/01/2017 which has the squad list for the relays so you know which session you are swimming in.

We are looking forward to seeing some fast swimming this weekend as some of you have achieved a PB in training within the last 2 weeks.  Get down that first 25m hard and keep picking up the effort every 10 metres.  Don't slow down into the finish, smash through the wall.  When swimming in the relays be careful on the takeovers, block out the background noise and concentrate on your team mate swimming in.  It is better to go late than early and get your team disqualified.
 
'Before the (Olympic) trials I was doing a lot of relaxing exercises and visualisation.  And I think that that helped me to get a feel of what it was gonna be like when I got there.  I knew that I had done everything that I could to get ready for that meet, both physically and mentally.'  Michael Phelps, 6 Gold medals, 2004 Olympic games
Good Luck Everyone! http://tracking.technodesignip.com/?action=count&projectid=642&contentid=6535&referrer=-&urlaction=r...

Harrogate & BOK Entries 2017

Hi All,

 
Entries for the Harrogate Spa Town Meet and BOK Spring Open Meet will be taken on Monday 13th February.  Swimmers are advised to enter events they have not just swum at the Yorkshires.  

The Harrogate meet will be a great opportunity for swimmers to try events they have never swum before such as the 100 Fly, 200 Fly, 400 FS and 400 IM.  

Harrogate Meet we advise you to update your 200m short course times.  

BOK Spring Meet we advise you to update your 200m Fs and your 100's.

Please speak to your coaches if you are unsure.  We would also suggest entering the 50m FS and your best 50m form stroke between these two meets to keep your times up to date for Junior League selection.  
 
Please note the Harrogate Spa Town Meet is limited to 400 entries per club.  So we can give everyone an opportunity to race we ask that swimmers do not enter more than 5 events.
 
Swimmers must not have swum faster than the Upper Limit Time in the previous 12 months but must have swum faster than the Lower Limit Time in the same period.  Upper and Lower Qualifying times can be seen by using the link below.  Swimmers who are wanting to try new events can use the standard times formula to work out an estimated entry time based on your PB's.  However if you do use this please make sure your estimate is within the upper and lower qualifying times Harrogate have published.

Standard Times Formula
 
We will start signing forms now.  Please remember we will be unavailable to sign forms and discuss entries on Monday evenings as we will be coaching from 4.30pm onwards.
