Championship Preparation!

Championship Preparation!

As we head into the month of February, Delta coaches are preparing for Championship season. In the coming weeks, there will be Championship level meets for all abilities and age groups. We’ll begin our racing with our hosted Chase the Dream Championships; next, we’ll head to ISI Regional Championships for qualified athletes the following weekend and the ISI Age Group Championship meet for qualified athletes two weeks later. Then our Senior level swimmers will head to Lincolnshire for the ISI Senior Championship meet before Sectional qualifiers race long course meters in Iowa City in March.

Additionally, we’ll have high school boys racing at IHSA Conference, Sectional and State meets! 

Coaches will continue to use their allotted practice time to prepare athletes physically, mentally, and emotionally for the long weekends of fast racing. The practice schedule is adjusted after the Regional Meet and will be communicated and reflected on the practice calendars. 

In this last stretch of the short course season, it is extremely important that nutrition, hydration, sleep, and purposeful recovery are all emphasized at home. Great training can’t beat poor recovery at home!
