Vacations

Planning Vacations

For our age group swimmers (ages 12 and under), feel free to plan your vacations however you choose, check ahead of time with their coach if you are not sure. Avoid being gone during our BSW hosted meets to avoid paying a fine. If your swimmer is a Jr. Olympic or Far Western qualifier, avoid being gone the weeks leading to early Dec.*, the end of March*, the end of July*, Early August (WCAB End of Summer meet for everyone Age Group and Senior) just before our team break.

For our Gold/Senior swimmers (ages 13 and over), planning vacations will depend on the time standards your swimmer has achieved. As they advance from an age group emphasis (JO's and FW's) to Senior Open, Senior II and above their training schedule and focus become more demanding and vital to their success. Interruptions to their training, be it due to vacation, injury, illness, school/family conflict, will hurt their peak performance at focus meets. Some of these interruptions are controllable, others are not, they should all be minimized as much as possible. Staying healthy, good nutrition, getting 8+ hrs of sleep daily, keeping up with school demands, being smart and carful with their physical activity outside of swimming, and NOT MISSING PRACTICE all play an important part in their success.

Senior swimmer focus meets are different from age group. They are: early December (Husky, 14 & Un JO's or Senior II), Mid February (Santa Cruz Trials/Finals) or March (Jr. Nationals in Orlando), May (HS North Coast/Sr. Walk-on meet Sunday after NCS for those in high school), June (Summer Sanders T & F, Roseville), July/Early Aug. (JO's, Sectionals, Futures, US Open, FW's) - Early August (WCAB End of Summer meet for everyone Age Group and Senior) just before our team break. See Coach Carson if you are in the planning stages of a family vacation and need help.
