The Trainer of the Week is another new Swimming Waikato initiative. It’s about acknowledging a swimmer at each Club who has put in an awesome week of training. They’ve turned up on time, carried out their dryland warm up and have had plenty of food to fuel their training. They’re focused and they’ve given 110% at each session.
The weekly recipient of the Award is chosen by the Club Coach and is presented with a “Trainer of the Week” kick board which he/she gets to train with until the next award ceremony. But first, the deserved swimmer gets to write their name, in permanent marker, on the kick board – so it’s like a floating honours board. By the end of the year, it’ll carry the names of all the swimmers who have received this Award.
We’ve sent information about this initiative to our Coaches and we’re hoping to see our “Trainer of the Week” initiative being used extensively throughout our Clubs during 2018.
