Test yourself

Swim competition provides an opportunity to test yourself against yourself, meaning you have a chance to race the clock and see how you have improved.  Each time you race is a chance to see if your time spent at practice and working on your abilities in the pool is progressing. 

Dive competition allows for you to demonstrate the skills learned during practice. While you may not be racing against a clock, at each meet you get an overall calculated score. The more difficult the dive (measured as degree of difficulty, or DD), the higher the score. The higher the DD and skills you learn in practice, the more you are able to grow as a diver. You’ll see how well you are doing as your score begins to rise at each meet. 

Competing against anyone is a test. We must always do our best to prepare and focus on the things we can control.  You cannot control the temperature of the pool, the weather, the timer, the officials, or any equipment at the meet. You can only control what you do in the pool and your attitude. Stay focused on what you can control, and you will be successful in the pool. 

Building character

The LJCC Swim and Dive Club has the responsibility to train staff, volunteers, and participants to model and promote appropriate values through sport, and to create an environment conducive to character development and safety.

Thank you for choosing the LJCC. We look forward to having your swimmer on the team.
