TNT Holiday Novice Meet
December 15, 2018
Twenty two TNT swimmers competed at the TNT Holiday Novice Meet, held December 15 at the Bounds YMCA. The kids had a great time and swam well. Emphasis was on having fun, and demonstrating the four Competitive Swimming strokes and associated skills, in a competitive environment.

Time improvements, especially at the entry level of the sport can and often do fluctuate. In fact, because we do not disqualify for stroke infractions at Novice Meets, swimmer times can actually become slower due to technique improvement, as their strokes become more "legal." While this is not always the case, it is often an overlooked aspect of development at the entry level.
First Competitive Swimming Meet: David Beech, Mason Meier, Noah Palmer, and Carl Sharitt.
