PIERRE LAFONTAINE - BUILDING A CLUB, COMMUNITY &
TEAM FOR SUCCESS

Thank you for making time. You've been involved in coaching for five decades. In that time, you've gone from corner to corner of the globe. You've impacted thousands of people. I want to dive into the thick of you and your coaching to get as much out of this as we can.


So what has a lifetime of coaching taught you? That's a big question, and I got to get you to boil it down to some key points, 

I think the number one is we can't make people do things. We have to empower people to do something.


I also believe that I'm not in the swimming business; I'm in the people business. I always felt a lot of the work was to inspire the best out of people and help them dream big. It all fits within the bigger picture; it's not just about swimming better. It's about being a better teammate, being a better person, being a better son and daughter, and, hopefully, being a better world leader tomorrow. We coach kids that you hope to want to get involved in the sports and complete the circle when they are adults, as a volunteer or as a coach or as an official. It's all about the bigger picture, not just the swimming aspect.

RICHARD PADY - TRIATHLETE, COACH & MASTER OF FINDING YOUR TRIBE

I've learned that the training part, the day-to-day time and mileage, that's easy. That's truly the easiest part, but the mental game of it all, especially when we talk about Iron Man, I explained to everyone, whether you are the first person or whether you are dead last, everyone is suffering. And if you're not suffering, something's wrong with you; and you should probably quit after that race because you had the perfect day. It is a huge challenge. And even down to half iron man, and a sprint even down to an Olympic distance. You know, even we can talk about swimming even in a 400, there's always that question of whether you can do it, at that three-quarter distance your brain will always want to tell you, you can't do it.

So to me, it's always about training the athlete, working with the athletes to make sure that they're ready to handle that moment because the rest of it's pretty straightforward.

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.

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.

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.

Find a swimming or triathlon program around you

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".

There are so many organizations big and small across Canada that provide programs for people of all ages. We have compiled information for swimming, triathlon and multisport programs below.

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.
