With the current shutdown in NYS due to COVID-19, all pools are currently closed in Albany, NY. That being said, there is no reason why Excel swimmers cannot continue to hone their skills and learn more about the different aspects of swimming, even from home. We are very excited to announce that moving forward, we will be posting videos online highlighting two aspects of training!
Types of swim videos:
- Instructional videos: prior to the shutdown, a couple of our coaches were able to get some underwater and above water videos of Freestyle. We are going to use these clips to create content on some of the drills, progressions, and key points that swimmers can use to learn a bit more of not just the how, but the WHY in their stroke development and Freestyle training.
- Technical analysis: Coach Kevin will be providing analysis on any swim videos submitted to [email protected]. These can be underwater, above water, or a mix, and will be a great way to not only get some feedback on your own swimming, but learn from what others do as well! Collaborative education is a powerful tool, and we fully intend to take advantage of it.
While the timeline for this shutdown is still unclear, we will continue to educate our Excel swimmers remotely, which will allow us to be well prepared for the Summer season once it arrives. Stay safe, be well, and we look forward to seeing everyone again soon!
