2018 Summer Practice Schedule

Hey everyone, we’re finally able to do some off-season training this summer to give every athlete a better shot at success in the coming seasons. All LHS athletes current or incoming are welcome and encouraged to attend summer practices.

We will focus a ton on technique, drills, strategy, race specific training, and lot of other super important stuff we just don’t have the time for during our short season. Don’t worry, athletes will get a solid workout in too.

Practices will take place at the Loveland High School Pool.

If you want a super easy way to keep track of whats going on with LHS Swim & Dive, subscribe to the team calendar and all team events (meets, practices, camps, other fun things) will magically show up on your phone!

See you on deck!

Team Dinners
Team dinners are a HUGE part of building a strong and bonded team! These take place the evening prior to every meet. We do our team dinners potluck style so the host family isn’t completely overwhelmed. If you choose to host a team dinner you will be responsible for the main dish only! You can sign up to host a dinner here. Thank you for opening your home to the team!

Ladies Team News: State Week!

This weekend was one of the best swim meets I’ve ever seen. All of our athletes competed hard, many of them were rewarded with personal best times and two more athletes qualified for state. I watched as the team supported one another, cheered each other on, talked strategy, and enjoyed every single second of this final regular-season meet.

I’m so proud of this team.

Thank you, Athletes, for being so dedicated throughout the season, for being kind and supportive teammates, for being coachable and constantly looking for ways to improve. Each member of this team has contributed to the overall success of the season, and I hope that everyone feels a strong sense of accomplishment as we bring the regular season to a close. You are the best set of athletes a coach could ever ask for!

Thank you parents and supporters, the girls (and myself!) wouldn’t have been even half as successful without your support outside of the water!

We will be having a team banquet in the coming weeks, details and information on location and date will be sent via email. If anyone has fun photos from this season that want included in a slideshow, please send them to me!
