I started swimming two years ago. All I can say that it has changed my life. I don't know what I would do without it. I am twelve years old and have had 18 junior Olympic cuts a 1 zone. I push myself and my team everyday to do our best. I swim for O.H.Y.A, Oak Hills Youth Athletics. We have over 70 kids on the team with four coaches. The head coach in Sean Caroll, the other three coaches are Brad Heines, Sandy Caroll, and Laura. We swim at Oak Hills high school and we are a U.S.A team. I hope you get a chance to read this. Swimming is my life and I'm glad I have it there.
I am A swim parent from holyoke Massachusetts. Our team has grown and has become quite competitive nationally. Our team would really benefit from an Olympian coming in and talking to our kids. They listen and take all comments to the pool. Live USA Swimming and all swimming stands for. Go USA!!!!!
My son and daughter (18 and 15) have been swimming for the Buenaventura Swim Club for the past 5 to 6 years now. Jason York, our head coach has taken this team from the bare bones to a high quality, competitive team. I have told him, "If you build it, they will come," for some time now. And build it he has. And up and coming they are. For the kids who work hard two to three times a day, and the kids that are on their way up the swim ladder, what a joy and honor this would be. Bring it on Swim Outlet!!
I am a parent board member of the Bexley Marlins Swim Team! Our team underwent a complete restructuring this year with new coaches, several new parent board members, a new logo and many new swimmers! This year we have 157 team members!!! All of our swimmers are giving it their all this summer and are working hard to improve their strokes and times all while still having lots of fun with their friends! We want kids to have fun swimming so they will continue to swim. It is a fantastic sport!!! The team even embraces community service with a fun meet that benefits a local charitable effort in memory of a former swim team member. Our team would be so inspiredl by a visit!
The Andrew & Walter Young YMCA, USA swim and triathlon competitors are an inner city youth team out of Atlanta, GA. Our athletes are beating the odds and embracing "Diversity in Aquatics". Our coach, Kraig Jennings, has taken these athletes to a new level in competitive swim. Meeting a swim Olympian is only a dream for these athletes who are driven, eager and successful in all things competitive swim. Make us your choice, it will be a great day for both the swimmers and the Olympian!
I AM A SWIM MASTER COACH . I´M FROM CHILE, SOUTHMERICA. I HAVE A 50 SWIMMERS IN MY TEAM , THE AGE OF THE ATHLETES ARE IN 20 TO 72 YEARS OLD. I LIKE TOO MUCH THE DELIVERY IDEA, BUT I KNOW IS VERY DIFFICULT TO VISIT US A SWIMMER LIKE A RYAN LOCHTE OR OTHER OLIMPIC CHAMPION. I WILL LIKE TO HAVE MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE DELIVERY FOR OUR COUNTRY. MY ENGLISH IS NOT SO GOOD, BUT I TRY TO WRITE IN THE BEST WAY . I WILL WAIT FOR YOUR E MAIL. THANKS.
My kids swim with Forest Area Swim Team ages 8 and 10. This is their fifth year swimming with the team. We have a lot of dedicated swimmers on the team. We could use some inspiration from Ryan Lochte or any other Olympian who would like to visit the area. We have close to 100 kids participating on the team this year and this would be such a special treat for them.
A Gold Medal Delivery to the Coto Coyotes Swim Team would just be off the charts amazing. What an awe inspiring day that would be for our hard working coaches and swimmers. A dream come true for sure. Thank you Swim Outlet for your fabulous products and for Gold Medal Deliveries.
Sparta Mermaids are ladies/gentleman who need continued water therapy so we've formed a water aerobic group to keep us walking. We have knee replacement, hip replacements, Arthritis, back problems, fibromyalgia, etc. We get in good shape for the shape we are in.
HI, I do not swim with a team as of this date. I retired in October and started swimming at my gym, I am up to one hour which is just over a mile...I am slow. I love swimming and I believe that with Swim Outlets help we could bring quite a large group of people to the world of swimming. I bought the G2 underwater swim MP3 and since have had at least 15 people as where I bought it. I even turned my teeth cleaning hygienist onto it. Please come to Bakersfield and inspire more to join the wonderful world of swimming.
My both sons, Ned and Burt, swim for Team Genesis Swim Club and Love Swimming, a Sport Ministry of Trinity Fellowship Church. They have been swimming since they were 4 years old and they love it. As a team, we swim in four different places, and most of us have to drive more than an hour. There are some talents in this little team who wouldn't mind sacrificing anything to become as good as you. We don't mind driving because our coaches are very dedicated to teach our swimmers with properly technique and respect for each other. All swimmers work very hard to improve themselves even though during the winter the practices are cancelled often based on the decision the other organizations make. I would love that coach Rudi, coach Alice, and all swimmers have such a great surprise and support from your team. I know that meeting with you guys, it will be just a dream come true event. I pray to make this happen. Please, please consider Team Genesis! Thank you for serving all over the country. You are a great inspiration for all of us!
We swim with the Razorback Aquatic Club AquaHawgs in NW Arkansas. We have a great group of swimmers who would greatly enjoy a delivery from y'all. Our team has regular "All Team" practices where our Senior swimmers work with our two younger groups. At combined meets it is fun to watch the little kids hang out with the big kids. The little girls on the team hug or ^5 each other right before races and are often found wishing each other "good luck".
After being disbanded our club restarted a little over a year ago, we have a dedicated small group of core swimmers whom would love a surprise visit by your gold team. During our shutdown these swimmers managed to stay active in swimming even though they were at different organizations. We now have a dedicated coach who is bringing out the best in our swimmers. Our swimmers have increased not only in numbers but also in accomplishments. Bixby Swim Club would love to see you at our pool.
How inspiring for the swimmers would this be to a smaller club who normally would not be given the opportunity like this. I know we are in Airdrie, Canada but if there was a chance of having someone visit our team that would be beyond amazing to our group of very dedicated swimmers. Our coach is amazing and our team has won the banner for 6 yrs in a row at provincials for most points for a small team. This would be so exciting!!
Wow, love that these wonderful swimmers give of their time to come to local pools and inspire. We all know that just a drop of inspiration can grow into something great. Fantastic job on promoting and executing this idea, SwimOutlet!
A small island (Jamaica) with a few running tract and only one 50M competition pool with lots of aspirants for competition. Competitive swimming in Jamaica is experiencing a re-birth, with enrollments steadily increasing and long standing age group records being erased. This dramatic enrollment growth necessitates an appearance or two from a role model to further increase the interest in the sports.
This will go a far way in "Building champions in the pool and in life."
All three of my children are swimmers and have been swimming since a very young age. My two oldest swim now in High School and I would love to surprise their swim coach with a visit from Ryan Lochte, or any role model swimmer. Never have my kids enjoyed the sport more so than now with such an awesome role model. Coach Bart is considering retiring soon and it would be a special honor to him and so cool to have this opportunity, he truly deserves it. Thank you!!
One competitive swimming pool 25 yards long with 6 lanes. One competitive swimming pool for a 160,000 city population. One competitive swimming pool used by 4 high schools. One competitive swimming pool with a waiting list for kids to join the swim club.
One competitive group of young children who work hard, rarely complain and compete at their highest level.
Having an Olympian deliver the goods to our pool would be news worthy. This could open the eyes of the city council and could be the tipping point needed to start looking into developing a proper swimming pool that could accommodate the needs of these kids. It's not easy telling a child who wants to swim that he can't because there it not enough room.
