The 13& overs ready to rock it at RMSC Meet this weekend.
In today’s highly competitive world, far too many athletes get distracted by what their competition is doing. They become too preoccupied with beating a certain opponent instead of just concentrating on themselves. To these athletes, winning means being number one, coming in first and nothing else. Losing or being the runner-up is viewed as a failure. However, if you measure your level of excellence by comparing yourself with an opponent, then you are seriously limiting yourself.
The secret to success is doing the best that YOU can do. Excellence is about YOUR BEST and no one else’s, regardless of the outcome. Focusing on what your opponent is doing will only serve to knock you off center, disrupt your concentration and get you too uptight to perform to your potential. Instead, you want to stay within yourself. Forget about what your competition is doing. Do everything in YOUR power to achieve YOUR goals. Focus on YOUR training. Work on YOUR weaknesses. Practice YOUR skills and technique. And when you compete, trust yourself, know that you’ve done everything in your power to prepare, and just let the result take care of itself.
Remember, winning is about what YOU do, not what your opponent does. If you do everything possible in your training, if you leave no stone unturned, if you give it your all and truly go for it, then forget winning and losing, you are a true winner!

[01/04/20] Great job to everyone who swam the 1000 today! Everyone did things they have been working on in practice and all swimmers had personal best times!
Had fun ringing in the new year this morning with these great kids! Thank you and we look forward to 2020! #gobluewave #bluewaveohana #goblue🌊 @ The Ashburn Village Blue Wave Swim Team
Happy holidays from the Blue Tide and Rip Tide crew that made it through the 12 Days of Christmas workout this morning. They did an awesome job!!!
#overthinking can crush performance and stifle growth. Practice intentionally “going for it”. Trust your instinct or view the error through the lens of learning and growth. The less fear you can feel from mistakes the faster you’ll grow and become more! #mentality #mindset #performance #dothework #performancepsychology #sportpsychology

That’s how you finish a Saturday night session of a meet. First Matthew Char wins the 9-10 50 free and breaks his own team record. Then, the 13-14 boys of Gavin, Chris Nathan and Andrew broke the 400 medley relay record. Awesome job tonight!!! One more day!!
Another duckworthy swim from Ella as she drops her own record from this morning in the 200 back. She went under 2:10 for the first time going 2:09.48. Awesome job, Ella!!
Double duck for Matthew Char for winning the 9-10 boys 200 free AND breaking a 14 year old meet record. He broke his own team record in the 200 free and broke his brother’s 100 breast record. Great night, Matthew!!
Everly is ready to kick some fin at finals in the 9-10 girls 200 free!
Congrats to Ella McOmber for breaking the 15-18 and Open 200 backstroke records this morning at the Sport Fair Winter Classic. She’ll be back at finals looking for more along with several other 13 & overs. #gobluewaves #kachow
Hot start to the Sport Fair Winter Classic for the Blue Wave swimmers.
All of our individual swimmers had lifetime best swims and finished top 8, with two event champions in Sebastian Nappi and Matthew Char.
We had multiple team records set tonight with Matthew breaking his own team record in the 9-10 500 and Lauren Long broke the 15-18 and Senior girls 200 free record with her relay lead off.
Lots of relay swimmers went faster than they’ve ever gone before. It’s a great start and we are only just beginning.
Sending best wishes to @g_dalessandro as he hits the pool tomorrow. Swim fast!! Do it for the duck!! @uncwswimmingdiving
Sometimes the coaches clean up real nice!
Congratulations Coach Camilla and her new husband Luis! We could not be happier for you both! 💙💚
Quick trip over to the Swim & Rock meet for the distance session and we had a great day. 100% best times for the swimmers who competed and Lauren Long broke both the 15-18 and Open 1000 yard freestyle records. Great signs of things to come in December!! #gobluewave #ohana
From Olivier Poirier-Leroy
🏊🏊 What do you want to accomplish at practice today?
Instead of waiting for your coach to tell you what to work on, go to the pool with a clear idea of what you want to do in the water.
Training goals are an endless supply of opportunities to develop self-confidence.

We all make mistakes. What do you do afterwards is key.
WORK ON YOUR MISTAKES IN PRACTICE
Too many athletes dwell on mistakes immediately after they make them. In competition, your job is to refocus your concentration on the task at hand and to leave your mistakes and errors behind you. Focusing on mistakes and giving yourself a hard time for them will only cause you to mess up even more. Think about and work on your mistakes after the competition, in practice, not during the game. "Make" a mental mistake folder where you can put all your mess-ups during the game and reassure yourself that you will take the "mistake folder" out and work on those errors later, when it's the right time. Quickly letting go of mistakes and refocusing are the two mental toughness skills that champions do best.
On our way and here we are. First day was great. Exited for the rest of the weekend. #gobluewave🌊 #bluewaveohana #travelmeets
Blue Wave 13 and overs ready to crush it today!!!!

Great thought from Olympic coach Eddie Reese
mailchi.mp “In order for your taper to work, you have to do things correctly from the BEGINNING of the year. If you have done what you need to in fall and winter, your spring taper almost can’t go wrong.” Coach Eddie Reese’s Various Talks at the ASCA World Clinics of the Past 40 Years.
Dr. Alan Goldberg- Peak Performance for Athletes, Coaches and Parents
Always focus on having the best possible performance, where you easily execute to your full potential. It may not always turn out that way, but starting with that in mind will give you far better results than focusing on past mistakes or worries!
