California Wildfires Causing Air Quality Concerns For Swim Practices
SWIMSWAM
Sept. 10, 2020— For a second straight year, California wildfires are bringing up air quality concerns that could affect swim practices and competitions. Wildfires are tearing across the West Coast, killing seven people and destroying buildings across California, Oregon and Washington.

The Positive Effects of Swimming On the Brain
SWIMMING WORLD NEWS
July 17, 2020— The Positive Effects of Swimming On the Brain By Alice Reeves-Turner, Swimming World College Intern. If there is one thing all swimmers (and ex-swimmers) can agree on, it is the addictive nature of swimming. We all crave the smell of chlorine on our skin, the pain of a long, hard set and the adrenaline rush that comes from every race regardless of its result. The fact that so many find it so hard to hang up the goggles is proof enough of this addiction. However, very few know why we feel this way. The answer is in science and hormones. Endorphins, the hormone which quite simply makes ...

Why You Should Always Finish Strong
SWIMSWAM
July 11, 2020— Probably sounds familiar. This is one of the classic coach-isms that swimmers receive in the moments before stepping up on the blocks. But this outlook is something you should bring with you to the practice pool, too. Here’s why you should finish strong.

Legs are cement, lungs are burning, and you are questioning your choice of sport. As you begin the head-first fall into Ouchietown, your technique begins to crack, you slow ...
