Being a swim coach can be very hard, depending on what time. If you are talking about a competitive swim coach, than I can tell you that it is very hard work. Competitive swim coaches often have to spend there time at five 'o'clock in the morning on a pool deck coaching aspiring swimmers. Also they spend their evenings coaching. They also have to spend some of their personal time talking to swim parents and having meetings with the swim team council. A swim coach is a very difficult job!
There are various websites up and running for perusal to enable one to join a local swim team. Several clubs offer competitive price lists and details of how to sign up.
It really depends on your age level and how competitive your team is.
Be sure to make this a very shallow dive. Our swim team dove from the regular side of the pool.
A swim team is a group of competitive swimmers that swim ___ laps depending on the age of the swimmer. They have different heats if there are a lot of swimmers in the same event. 4 strokes are swam, Freestyle, Backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly. There are also relays with 4 swimmers, and a IM (individual medley) which is all 4 strokes in one race. If you want to see a very competitive level of kid swimming then search USA swimming.
Yes, swimming can be competitive and fun. During swim practice you might want to do some different exercises to help every part of your body. We sometimes have scrimmages at our pool to see who would be the best swimmer from our school/college. When it comes to swim meets it is competitive. Sometimes you only think about winning. But no matter what if you win or loose you still tried your best. If you get on the starting block sometimes your adrenalin will kick in (do not do a belly flop into the pool) Try to dive in as best as you can and hopefully you will get an advantage. You will sometimes see what place you come in. Usually after all races are done you will see which school/college/team has won.
Appalachian State no longer has a varsity swim team, due to lack of funding. However they do have a competitive swim club and they are an official member of the Appalachian Club Sports on campus. They travel all around the country to compete against other collegiate swim clubs and travel to Georgia Tech every year to swim at the East Coast Championships, where over 40 swim clubs attend.
Any number of people can be on a swimming team. The number depends on the size of the pool and the times that the team is allowed to practice.
