News and Announcements
Hello Armada Parents & Swimmers!
Great news, we can switch our schedule one week early this year! The AHS swim season concludes a week earlier that previously anticipated so we can move our workout times ahead of the original April 29th date.
New schedule effective Monday, April 22nd!
Armada Workout Schedule Link:
Argo Swim Video will be visiting Armada for a video session for Armada swimmers on Sunday, May 19th 1:30-4:30
Argo will set up their cameras to film our swimmers at Albany pool. They have a camera rolling on a track that will follow the swimmer and get an amazing underwater image of their strokes from side and front angles. Each swimmer will be filmed doing an IM and then have access to the video to review with their coach. Coaches will review the video with each swimmer using voice over break down for direct evaluation of technique. Sign up for this great opportunity and help take your swimmer to the next level!! Our long term plan is to have Argo swim visit our team twice a year to track our swimmers form and continue to improve!
Please note this is the same day as the Terrapins swim meet. Swimmers being filmed on Sunday afternoon can just do morning events and filming in Albany after.
We will post filming appointments for this special visit on Sign Up Genius.
Cost is $50 per swimmer which will be billed on May 19th.
This is highly recommended for swimmers in Yellow, Juniors, Navy & Gold Group.
