Hey Guys!!!

Welcome to early spring training with the bantam program! I hope everyone is having a good March Break. If you are getting this email it is because you have expressed interest in the early spring program. If you have not yet paid, please do so at your earliest convenience!

This winter we have elevated the level of bantam program training, and I am sure that you will be a great addition to our group. We currently have practice on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 6-8 pm, Saturdays from 8-10 am, and Sunday evenings swimming at Carleton pool from 7-8:30 pm.

Mondays: circuits in the gym, with a focus on bodyweights that work on getting the heart rate up, and on quickness. We also spend a lot of time making sure that there is proper range of motion and technique.

Wednesday: weight training, focusing on building strength, doing balanced exercises and learning the proper ways to do weights

Friday: medicine ball and balance ball work, focus on coordination and full body exercises. We often work in partners and teams, focus on proprioception and agility. This is also our paddling machine night where we do a combination of endurance on the machines, learning technique and creating a working knowledge of the technical norms in paddling so that when we get on the water we are better able to communicate.

Saturday: we try to run outside as much as possible on this day, building endurance and cardio fitness.

Sunday: swimming, cardio and technique work

Coaches are myself and Lana, and Catrin will be helping us on a volunteer basis.

Training starts on Saturday, March 16th, at 8 am!! I look forward to seeing you there!!

Please let me know fi you have any questions, Cheyanne
