Dear Swimmers and Families
A beautiful Spring week at TSS has seen everyone enjoy the warmer weather. Those early mornings are certainly a little bit easier when its warmer :) We are so lucky to be able to train outside in a beautiful environment, the Queensland Winter is not exactly tough but the Spring is just awesome. Remember as the weather heats up you will need to adjust your water intake to stay hydrated.
Thought for the Week: As we Spring into a new season, tidy away all the winter clothes and move into the next part of the swimming calendar. Remember that "your life is a reflection of your habits. If you want different results choose different habits."
Absolutely quackers: The family of ducks at the pool has expanded and we have welcomed several little ducklings this week...they have taken over the 25m pool and can be seen enjoying the midday sunshine in and around the water :)
DT's tip for the week is to maintain some balance in your life. We are all busy people and the swimmers spend a lot of the time at the pool, and equally as much time trying to organize their studies and education. Combining school and sport is tough, managing the demands of training, homework and exams. Try to make sure you have some quiet time in the week, not on your phone or computer. Maybe just 30mins reading, or relaxing, try a meditation app, chill out on the beach or doing something you enjoy...but take some time for yourself :)
TSS Meet: Thanks for your help donating time, food and raffle prizes. The two meets we hold are way above the standard of the average meet, and the visiting coaches and officials are always very complimentary about in their feedback. This couldn’t be achieved without your support!
Club Night #5: The next Club Night is Friday 15th September with racing to start at 5pm. Please see your coach for details of when you need to arrive. Club Nights this season have been fast and fun, with support from the Senior Swimmers and led by the parents from our Junior Groups. This balance allows the Juniors swimmers to practice racing but more importantly to have a good time. They can relax with their friends, smash out a couple of races, and head home via the sausage sizzle at the end. Thanks to everybody who has given up their time and effort to make the first four such a big success.
Parents’ Social Event: Thank you to those parents who attended our first social gathering of the season, at Garden Kitchen & Bar, The Star Casino. A thoroughly enjoyable afternoon! Security even dropped by to certify that all present were well behaved. A special thank you to Grant Goodison for arranging both the venue, and lucky door prizes. Tiger Sharks were well represented, but next time we would love to also see some friendly faces from our other squads too. Next social event is scheduled for January. Watch this space.
News Flash: Did you know that Liam du Feu has recently learnt to bake! Rumour has it that a Christmas cook book might be in the pipeline (only healthy recipes of course)!! Stay tuned .....
Finally, good luck to all TSS swimmers competing at our meet this weekend.
