Swimming for the Soul

Posted on April 19, 2012 at 7:14pm 0 Comments

From the WashingtonPost.com, by Lynn Sherr:

To call swimming a religious experience might sound like sacrilege.

But for many of us, every time we slip into a bikini, or plunge into the ocean, or pound out our laps, we’re actually taking part in a spiritual rite. Swimming is an ancient activity, combining the mystical properties of waters with the pure joy of…

USRowing Diversity Invitational Recap

Posted on August 5, 2011 at 12:55pm 0 Comments

On July 30 my wife and I had the honor and privilege to attend the First Annual USRowing Diversity Invitational. For those of you who have never been to Rochester, I highly suggest you make a visit. I honestly felt as if Rochester is the friendliest city I have ever been to. Upon arriving to city limits, we…

Hi Jayson, how can I get in touch with you?

Thanks Jayson.  Thaddeus Gamory sent me an invitation.

Hello Jayson!
Sorry I didn't see your comment until today since I haven't been logging in since I started the profile! >_br/>I don't even remember how I found this site! I think it was because I was trying to find a particular Black sailor (Either HE Ross or Paul Mixon) and a link to his profile on this page came up. ^_^

Hi Jayson!

Thanks for the warm welcome!  I found your link on DC Wave Swimming page.

Hi Jayson,

One of my supervisors actually sent me the most recent newsletter and mentioned I could get on the mailing list. 

Thanks for reaching out!

Hey Jayson,

I have known about the group for a while, guess my membership on this site somehow lapsed, attended a USMS ALTS Swim Instructor Certification Course over the weekend and Thaddeus Gamory reminded me to renew.

Lots of googling. I started looking for my old boss, Newt Jackson, and found him here. I'm feeling really anxious about wanting to get my son better and ready to compete. He was doing the developmental program at UMAC here at University of Maryland, but I didn't necessarily feel it was the best fit as there were dozens of kids in his program and there was so much talking and playing and not much focus on getting him better. Then I had back surgery and he stopped going altogether. Now he is 10, he's 5'3 with a 61.5 inch wingspan. I want him (and he wants) to be swimming. I have him working with a stroke coach at Trinity pool here in DC 2 days a week. My goal is to have him ready to compete by summer league. But I am wondering if there is something more, or something different I can be doing now to help accelerate him.
