After the cancellation of the 2020 SEISA season, we were unsure what this season would be. We didn’t know how many swimmers would come out, our initial estimates were around 60-65 swimmers.  We didn’t know what COVID protocols would stand, or what we would need to do to keep our kids safe. Nor did we...

Phew. What a whirlwind. Over the past four weeks, we’ve been working so hard to get our swimmers ready for this moment, the SESIA Conference Championship. We have worked on improving starts, turns, strokes, and so much more in such a short period of time. And while summer swim is wrapping up this weekend, I’ve...

Third week is, nearly, complete and we had another great two-meet week. Hidden Valley is a lot like us, they train outdoors, and have a limited number of “year-round” athletes. Madison, on the other hand offers a year-round program (similar to JCSC, MA, SCY and DCTS). Regardless, we moved through the water with great effort...

Each season, we hold a SEISA Conference Championship. While the location may change, the format does not. Typically we’re all up early (and the coaches are sufficiently caffeinated) to run the meet in two separate sessions, beginning at 8am with our 6U, 8U, and 10U crews. Occasionally this splits families between both sessions, and we...

Week two has come with a fury. With rain at nearly every practice and with the potential of being rained out of both meets, we made it through. Scoring wise, we were able to come away with two wins and had a great outing at both meets! Thank you to our volunteers who have made...

Wow. What a day of racing. Full Mock Meet Results. Early last week, I was day dreaming about how the mock meet would go. It was before the chaos of weather cancellations, writing practices and being on deck actively coaching. But here we are, meet day and it went off extremely well! First, I want...

Practice Cancelled

Wow, what a first day of practice. We’ve officially hit 100 swimmers registered for the Batesville Swim Team and you could see the excitement on deck today. Yes, it was mainly from Coach Greg, Kat and Sydney, but we could all tell how excited and nervous our swimmers were. Rainy Day Procedures As we head...

Every year I’ve coached, I’ve had brand new swim families come up to me with questions like, “how does this work?” “What should I expect?” or even stating “I have no idea what we’re doing.” And that’s okay. Each year, we work with new athletes to get them comfortable in the water and prepare them...

SEISA boards and coaches met previously to discuss the upcoming 2021 summer season. As we move closer to the season start these are some of the items that we felt important to share with the community at-large. 2021 Season Dates Practice begins on June 1, 2021 at Batesville Memorial Pool. (See the training groups for...
