Coaches Corner


Cuda Nation is on fire Great win yesterday! We kept our winning streak alive and now are 3-0! We, the coaching staff are so proud of all your hard work and dedication! It has been paying off! Keep up the great work!

This week we face off against the Deerfield Dolphins at home. I have no doubt that we defeat them as well!

This upcoming week is a shortened week for some and a longer week for the brave! Please remember we do not have practice on Monday for Memorial Day. Our first morning practice is Tuesday. Please check the summer schedule for correct age group times.

This week we will spend Tuesday and Wednesday on drills and stroke technique. Thursday will be our meet prep day, where we will focus on starts, finishes, diving and relays.

This upcoming weekend, some of our swimmers will be competing in Summer Thunder on Sunday and Monday. Let's wish them all good luck as they take on all other NWAL swim teams and swimmers at Klein High School. So far our invitations streak is 1-0 with Splash Depot under our belts, let's come home this weekend with two W's!

A huge thanks again to our board members, parents, and volunteers for all of your hard work and commitment to the team! None of it is possible without you! Let's make this each week even better than the last! Go Cudas!

Stay safe and swim happy,

Coach Jennie

Candy from your coaches

The Cuda Coaches want to see the swimmers after they swim each time at the meet!

When your Cuda gets out of the water after swimming in each event, have them go see the coaches. After giving them constructive feedback, the coaches will give your Cuda some candy!

This is a great time for your swimmer to ask about a DQ (disqualification) or to find out what to do better.

It doesn't matter if your Cuda is a 6 & under or an 18 year old, the coaches want to give them a high five and candy for their awesome swimming! Don't miss out!
