Sorry just had to share a video of my daughter, this is my younger daughter doing a swim test for placement on the swim team.
Emma had not done any swim lessons last year when she said she would like to try the swim team here in town. That was about 9 months ago and since then she has worked so hard and grown so much. She started in the lowest level not knowing how to do any of the strokes and it looks like after this test she will move up one or two levels to the top levels on the team and will be ready to do some swim meets soon.
The test was FOURTEEN separate races and took from 5:30pm to 9:40pm, but she did not skip any of the tests. I just put the shortest races ons the video to give a taste of her swimming. Last Saturday they did a fund raiser and Emma was able to swim 208 laps without stopping to raise money, it makes me tired just thinking of it!
Check out the turns she does, that is just a trip to me! I am just so proud of Emma and how she has taken responsibility for all her training and stuck with it even when she was swimming outdoors in the snow at night, and has not missed more then one or two practices in this entire time. Just so cool to see your kid find something they like and are good at and are willing to work hard to do!
