The Coaches’ 10 Great Expectations
10. Respect The Clock
Everyone's time is valuable. Show up promptly.
Be ready to start practice.
9. Don't be a Rude Dog
This is a pet peeve. If you schedule an
appointment for a private lesson — show up.
(Please refer to Great Expectation #10.)
8. Standards: Set, Raise, Repeat
Have clear goals in mind and discuss them with
the coaches, and work hard to reach them.
Once done repeat.
7. Do Ask and Do Tell
Give feedback to your coach.
Call, email, text, etc. split times from all workouts.
We need to track your progress (or lack of) and make
modifications as necessary for you to succeed.
6. Save the Drama For Your Mama
No whining. Ask questions but don’t complain
because you think things are too hard.
Yeah it was a good idea at the time, right?
5. Take Advantage of Quality Alone Time
Do your homework (weekly workouts) before
we meet as a group. Triathlon and open water
swimming are individual sports and you have
to be able to motivate yourself too.
4. Be a Sore Winner
Expect to hurt, feel the "good pain", be sore,
be tired, have self doubt and maybe even cry a bit.
All athletes go through this – EVERYONE.
3. Get Real
If you think things are unreasonable,
you may need to revisit your goals.
2. Enjoy Wetting Yourself
Relax and have fun in the water.
