[02/17/20] We'd like to thank the parents that helped with timing and officiating at the Mini Meet this weekend. You all helped it run a little bit smoother. The kids also loved seeing you on the deck!
Almost that time of year.
This doesn’t mean don’t try. This means the more you try in training, the more confident you will be in the competition pool.
Once you’ve done the work and it’s now time to compete, you must temporarily put that “trying harder” mentality to bed.
Trying harder is a practice approach that involves pushing yourself physically and mentally. When it’s time to perform, this kind of headset will tighten your muscles and throw off your timing. You must be loose and relaxed to perform your best under the bright lights. The headset that you must bring is a “trust and let it happen” headset. You must trust your coaching and muscle memory, and then just relax and let the performance happen.
It's a rare day that we walk in to the pool feeling 100%. Don't let that stop you from having a great day.
#mambamentality day 3. Kobe was the rare tough guy that was willing to be vulnerable and honest about how the mind works even for the absolute best of the best. We don’t ever become void of emotions - even when we’ve achieved great things - but instead we learn to be aware of them so that we can begin to work at overcoming them when we need to.
Kobe’s lesson is NOT that he was perfect, but instead in how he approached his imperfection.
Great advice for our swimmers.
You are NOT your performances. Successes and failures over the course of your career do not and should NEVER define who you are as a person.
Winning a championship or a gold medal does not make you a better person than if you lost or came in fourth. Unfortunately, coaches, the sports media and most everyone around you may define you in this way. Do NOT accept other people’s narrow definition of yourself. If you buy into their very limited and constricted way of looking at your, then you will be setting yourself up for a lot of heartache. See yourself as your performance and you will find yourself always competing with your ego on the line, with a lot to lose.
When your self-worth and identity are at stake whenever you compete, then you will tie yourself into knots and always perform way below your potential. Much of the overwhelming pre-performance stress and nervousness that brings athletes to their knees is generated by this “I am my performance and if I lose I am a lesser person” head-set.
Great meet this weekend for this crew at the IMX meet! #goblue🌊 #bluewaveohana
Bout to rock the girls session of Polar Pentathlon
Some of us got best times, some of us got "improvement slips", but what matters most is we all had fun!
This crew absolutely crushed it this morning at the IM Xtreme Games. Almost all best times and the swimmers are showing the pay off for their hard work in the training pool. Keep it up and good things will keep happening. #gobluewave
The 13& overs ready to rock it at RMSC Meet this weekend.
In today’s highly competitive world, far too many athletes get distracted by what their competition is doing. They become too preoccupied with beating a certain opponent instead of just concentrating on themselves. To these athletes, winning means being number one, coming in first and nothing else. Losing or being the runner-up is viewed as a failure. However, if you measure your level of excellence by comparing yourself with an opponent, then you are seriously limiting yourself.
The secret to success is doing the best that YOU can do. Excellence is about YOUR BEST and no one else’s, regardless of the outcome. Focusing on what your opponent is doing will only serve to knock you off center, disrupt your concentration and get you too uptight to perform to your potential. Instead, you want to stay within yourself. Forget about what your competition is doing. Do everything in YOUR power to achieve YOUR goals. Focus on YOUR training. Work on YOUR weaknesses. Practice YOUR skills and technique. And when you compete, trust yourself, know that you’ve done everything in your power to prepare, and just let the result take care of itself.
Remember, winning is about what YOU do, not what your opponent does. If you do everything possible in your training, if you leave no stone unturned, if you give it your all and truly go for it, then forget winning and losing, you are a true winner!

Had fun ringing in the new year this morning with these great kids! Thank you and we look forward to 2020! #gobluewave #bluewaveohana #goblue🌊 @ The Ashburn Village Blue Wave Swim Team
Happy holidays from the Blue Tide and Rip Tide crew that made it through the 12 Days of Christmas workout this morning. They did an awesome job!!!
#overthinking can crush performance and stifle growth. Practice intentionally “going for it”. Trust your instinct or view the error through the lens of learning and growth. The less fear you can feel from mistakes the faster you’ll grow and become more! #mentality #mindset #performance #dothework #performancepsychology #sportpsychology
The more you know...
You can't have one without the other!

Hot start to the Sport Fair Winter Classic for the Blue Wave swimmers.
All of our individual swimmers had lifetime best swims and finished top 8, with two event champions in Sebastian Nappi and Matthew Char.
We had multiple team records set tonight with Matthew breaking his own team record in the 9-10 500 and Lauren Long broke the 15-18 and Senior girls 200 free record with her relay lead off.
Lots of relay swimmers went faster than they’ve ever gone before. It’s a great start and we are only just beginning.
Sending best wishes to @g_dalessandro as he hits the pool tomorrow. Swim fast!! Do it for the duck!! @uncwswimmingdiving
Sometimes the coaches clean up real nice!
Congratulations Coach Camilla and her new husband Luis! We could not be happier for you both! 💙💚
Quick trip over to the Swim & Rock meet for the distance session and we had a great day. 100% best times for the swimmers who competed and Lauren Long broke both the 15-18 and Open 1000 yard freestyle records. Great signs of things to come in December!! #gobluewave #ohana
From Olivier Poirier-Leroy
🏊🏊 What do you want to accomplish at practice today?
Instead of waiting for your coach to tell you what to work on, go to the pool with a clear idea of what you want to do in the water.
Training goals are an endless supply of opportunities to develop self-confidence.
