“Make the Grade” Set with Coach Gordy Westerberg

Gordy Westerberg, Clovis Swim Club

Yesterday I gave this set: 4 rounds

50 chute for feel

50 FR dive on ~50 to 55

75 stroke on ~1:30

100 FR

E175

Each swimmer had a goal time for the 50-75-100. Make the 50 goal = 2 points, 75 = 3 pts, and 100 = 4 pts. So 36 total points. 33-36 = A

29-32 = B

26-28 = C

22-25 = D

7 kids were 36/36

1 was 34/36

1 was 33/36

1 was 31/36

1 was 30/36

Then the wheels fell off and had

1 was 22/36

1 was 20/36

1 was 18/36

1 was 17/36

1 was 14/36

What I find interesting is that they were at both ends of the spectrum and NO ONE was in the middle!!!

I posted the goal times and posted the grading chart. They were looking between each round!!!

It was extremely hard for them to switch FR-STROKE-FR! An observation, the best we performed on were the 100s! The kids in the bottom group got most of their points from the 100s!

We did this in 3 heats.
