What is your personal goal for this season? What do you think is the key to achieve this goal?

What is the best part about swimming or diving?

“The best part about swimming is how much dedication is needed to complete the sport. A normal football player or wrestler could say how hard their practices are yet they have no idea how hard a regular swim practice is.
