TOM PONTING - GROWTH MIND SET, FAIL FORWARD, HARD WORK,

GOALS AND PERSEVERANCE

I want to talk about leadership. Your influence as a sports director has been far-reaching for quite some time.

 Once you have the strategy, you really have to concentrate on what culture you actually want? What is that performance culture? Make sure it revolves around values and behaviors.

Our values at Swimming Australia are :

  • courage
  • unity
  • excellence

Courage that we have to be ambitious with what we have to do. We want to be innovative. We want to take risks. We have to take risks in high-performance. Otherwise, you're not going to get the results. They are calculated risks, and we're dealing with government funds.

Unity is about collaborating with purpose. I don't believe you just collaborate for the sake of collaboration, but it has to, has to be purposeful. 

Excellence is trying to be the best in the world. We want to be the best in the world.

DICK HOYT - A PARENT'S COMMITMENT TO THEIR CHILD CHANGED THEIR SON'S LIFE.

Swimmer wearing Vorgee Missile Goggles

The intentional decision to treat Rick like he was a typical child meant being committed to doing what needed to be done to ensure that Rick was just that. The ideals wrapped up in that commitment, hard word, perseverance, dedication, and not being limited by a disability clearly had an effect on Rick and helped him accomplish all he and his family have done to date.

This is a story of a family that chooses to see each other as human beings; they love unconditionally and are prepared to move mountains for each other. Their legacy is an idea that anything can be achieved with perseverance, dedication, and commitment.

TOM PONTING - GROWTH MIND SET, FAIL FORWARD, HARD WORK,

GOALS AND PERSEVERANCE

Our conversation with Tom was walk through 45 years of swimming history in and out of his history-making career, being the only Canadian swim to date that has medaled in three consecutive Olympic Games. Tom's journey to where he is now has ebbed and flowed naturally; he talks about what he's learned, challenges that he has experienced, the joys of success and the bitterness of defeat, and how that has developed the framework of a growth mindset.

On one of your pages, you have a saying, and you seem to embody it with what you just said. It reads "Better is always better. No matter the amount, fail forwards, be brave, stay in the fight."

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW WHEN CHOOSING SWIMMING GOGGLES

Swimmer wearing Vorgee Missile Goggles

Whether you're swimming laps at an indoor pool or practicing in the pool outdoors or in the open water, swim goggles are essential for seeing underwater and protecting your eyes from irritants like chlorine and saltwater. But we've all felt what it's like to swim using pairs that don't work as well as they should. How do you select the best swimming goggles? A few questions first, what type of swimmer are you?  

Do you like to swim for fun? 

Are you swimming for exercise?

Are you a competitive swimmer?

Choosing a product based on use can be important. However, it would be best if you decided based on fit. 

First, let's dispel the swim goggle suction test...it is an irrelevant test. The tension found in the material of a one-piece goggle or an adjustable noise piece creates rigidity in the goggle's horizontal flexibility that will work to retain its shape. You need to put the straps on and feel the gaskets fit when you are wearing it.

Sports bringing us together in isolation - 

Super Bowl and the people

Watching their commitment through the years of tough losing seasons, winning seasons, and being so close so often has always been inspiring. It displays a level of commitment that I deeply respect and find honorable. A commitment to a goal, ideal & principles. How is this connected to current events? Shortly after the 2020 Superbowl, lockdown measures were put into place; the months following proved difficult for so many people and disastrous for some businesses. Lockdown, what did that mean? It meant that there was an invisible threat that we were learning about as researchers and doctors themselves learned more about; it was a fluid situation. I recall the speed at which everyday life moved from ordinary to something unknown for most of us; 

it was minutes. 

Sean Baker - | Winning at all benefit & team building

Swim coach Sean Baker

We spoke with Sean Baker of the Markham Aquatic Club. Sean has been a pillar of the Canadian swimming community for the past 30 plus years. He's had the opportunity to coach from coast to coast and has always strived to make swimming better in his community. He is unapologetic about winning, his desire to win, and his performance expectation so long as it's done in the right way. He's a proponent for athletic development and is a master of team building.

Jeff Grace - | Yoga, Mindfulness 

and Mental Health Wellness Plans

In the same vein, can you separate results from experience or, better said, an exceptional result versus enjoying an extraordinary experience as an athlete? In the shoes of an athlete, um, is it worth sacrificing one for the other? Would you sacrifice the totality of an awesome experience for the result? 
I don't know why you'd have to sacrifice one for the other. One of the things that I have bought into and truly believe in is developing habits and that habits will culminate into something great. I watched a documentary on Tony Robbins; something that I love that he said is that we all overestimate what we can do in a year, but we all underestimate what we can do in a decade. If you focus on developing habits, you can't help but have greater experiences. It's a culmination of your moments that are going to wind up creating success and creating happiness.

How does Anti-fog work on swimming goggles?

The simple dos and don'ts

  1. Keep the goggle dry before use.  
  2. Avoid creating humidity in the goggle before use by wearing the goggle prior to the session start.
  3. As the human body heats up, it sweats to cool itself down (yes, even in the water)
  4. Once the antifog is saturated and the goggle needs to be cleared, dip it in the water. Repeat as necessary.
  5. When the swim session is done, rinse the goggle in freshwater leave it to dry.
  6. Never touch the inside of the lens.
  7. Use a goggle with antifog injection works.

The semi-finals of the International Swimming League wrapped up today, laying the path forward to the finals on November 21 & 22, 2020. Energy Standard, London Roar, Cali Condors & LA Current will compete for the ultimate title in the professional swimming world - The ISL Championship.


The team reigns & individuals strive for wins in a challenging format. Watching world and country records get broken and having teams rally together for relay team wins and jackpot points make this league just so exciting.

CHAMPIONSHIP SET FOR ISL SEMI-FINALS

With match ten wrapped up after four weeks, the stage is set for the International Swimming League's semi-final.  

What to watch for:

  1. Placement - where are coaches going to place there swimmers
  2. Relays - Packed with actions, there are five relays on the roster. With a win worth 18 points, five relays can yield a maximum of 90 points is a substantial chunk of the 500 some odd points that are going to be required to move to the finals
  3. The Skins - the winning teams of the medley relays for men and women determine the skins race stroke. A skins win with a maximum of 64 (32 points per gender)
  4. JackPot Points - if a swimmer finishes ahead of other swimmers by a greater margin than the jackpot time, the points of these athletes are awarded to the club of the winner of the race

Between November 1 and December 1, 2020, we are donating 5% of all sales to the Breakfast Club of Canada

GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing people and organizations' power to transform their communities and the world. We have all become accustomed to the outrageous Black Friday scenes of people getting trampled to secure the latest and hottest toy out just in time to start the holiday buying season. It seems to draw out the worst in people, and there is no virtue in a gift that comes at the expense of someone else's well being, nor is a disposable item worth the hype.

What Makes The ISL So Good?

It is a reinvention of the sport of swimming. It brings an evolution to the sport of swimming, pulling it into current times. It is a professional league that showcases the talent and ability of so many high ranking athletes. These athletes seldom have the opportunity to achieve the notoriety or benefit from the exposure that the ISL provides.

It's exciting! It has a similar feel to the NCAA, with a few distinct differences:

  1. The season is split into a regular championship and a final
  2. Matches are between 4 teams.
  3. After all of the championship matches, the four clubs with the highest number of points advance to the final.
  4. It's about whose hand gets on the wall first and the team and not just the time.
  5. Teams are gender-neutral - 12 men - 12 women
  6. There are Skins events!

The Missile goggle is a go-to product for so many because of its versatility. Imagine a cross between an old Swedish swim goggle and a traditional medium profile training and racing swim goggle, and that is the Missile. Its inner orbital eye fit and four adjustable nose pieces put the goggle in the swimmer's eye socket; the soft silicone gaskets & the adjustable nose pieces allow a narrow or wide fit depending on the size of the swimmer. The bonus is the quality of the anti-fog and how long it lasts.

We all know...anecdotally that physical activity has a positive effect on mental health and our physical health. The research and evidence show, "Regular physical activity comprised of cardiovascular and resistance exercise has many mental health benefits. The longer you stick with your exercise schedule, and the more often you exercise, the more benefits you'll see. For example, research shows that regular physical activity can help with anxiety, stress, cognitive performance, and mood".

Why Choose Kick Boards & Pull Buoys Made From EVA Foam

Ever used a slimy, grimy kickboard or pull buoy? Here's why it was and your solution. EVA foam is expanded or foam rubber. Because EVA is a buoyant material, it is used in kickboards, pull buoys, aqua fitness equipment, fishing and water sports gear, and non-traditional items like floating eyewear. EVA foam remains strong at low-temperatures, retains its resistance to UV radiation and stress-cracking, and possesses hot-melt adhesive waterproof properties.
