Go Go! Go! to Racer X!
Keep plugging and doing it your way with gusto!
Incredible level of training for high school kids.
Many of these kids are younger then you would think… there are two elite 10 year olds and an amazing group of 12-14 year olds alongside the high schoolers!! Imagine what these kids will be like by the time they are in high school!!
Likely too bulked up to swim fast.
I had him at 18.9…
Jim’s #1 Fan
Great Program, Great Coach. Plenty of hard work and smiles.
Coach Jim does need some new coaching shorts.
Way to go Racer X
