Only thing ah didn't like is how he was 'Flexing' when he recieve he medal and they ask him to take ah group photo with the other medalist....  :-[  ..then they all start flexing too...we have to have ah humility chat again..cause he was flexing for the photo, not the win, but ppl won't know that....not necessary to draw attention to yuhself, some might be negative, and as little of that is preferable, even "if Lebron does it"...ent ? Seems today, it all about publicity, even if it's slightly 'loud' doh not deemed bad....I was never comfortable with  the spotlight, but it's a different time, I guess !

Curious...What would be your interpretation of big things, other than a state of the art Olympic size swimming/diving pool
ps: slighty of east of center of the city, is used as a community sports centre, as well as a National training centre for sychro, Waterpolo & platform & scuba Diving, 1 hr 1/2 froom the west Island, 15 mins by public transport from the centre of the city..
http://www.rio.gouv.qc.ca/pub/centre/centre_visiter.jsp

probably the best school run centre  - again open to the general public -  as well as Sport-Etude program

http://www.college-em.qc.ca/?CDAAFAF5-4745-4EDC-87BC-89E8B68A0E45


organized inhouse intra/extramural community programs, all ages, Badminton, volleyball, soccer, Badminton and Tennis, as well as 50 metre pool, they even have an indoor putting room, Karate,Judo, of course adjacent to Hockey rinks..built in the heart of communites, run and staffed by the community, organized by the community, on the school grounds, everyone benefits......many like that, within an hour from each other....a few a run by the city, and use of those are usually a minimal charge...also depending on the region of the city yo live..The city of pOinte Claire is completing it's 6 Million dollar 10 lane 50 Metre pool with diving pool, as well there is already a 50 metre and 25 yard pool, adjacent to of course Hockey Arena.....they are striving to be #1 swim club in Canada, as residents we swim for 50 $ for 6 mths or something ridiculous so.....,,,these are the type of encoragement these ppl have here....when I hear, bout 500 Million TT(100 Million Can) stadium, in the bush, I does wonder...but ah not going there...as a swimming coach, I am interested to hear what would be you wish list, as well as developmental plans/dreams...cause seriously, I spoil, I only used the football fields and indoor gyms here...but here have bout 6 mths of Winter...so what would be ideal for TT from a swim coach perspective ?

Where to begin???

State of the art pools with spectator facilities to host international meets

Full time paid positions for all involved from learn to swim come up

Full laborotory facilities for scientific testing

Proper weight/strength/power training facilities attached to the pools

Research libraries attached to the pool

Lewwe start with dat nah!

Where to begin???
My thoughts

State of the art pools with spectator facilities to host international meets
(At Least 2 pool(50,25) National training complex - shared Government/ swim association/ Swim companies and other interested parties sponsorship)
Full time paid positions for all involved from learn to swim come up
(This is usually covered by the local clubs and their booster programs, though a lump sum assistance is granted as per how many registered swimmers as well as amount of elite swimmers produced - Not really a government program, but some measure of assistance, based on results...On the National level, 3 to 4 Association subsidized positions outside of the club salary - determined by the club's board of directors - based on level of experience and area/level/age of athletes )
Full laborotory facilities for scientific testing
(This can be an all sport Facility- could be an all-Caribbean built/utilized facility- associated with an Exercise Science University program, students essentially do the testing, under the guidance of the already paid academic advisors)

Proper weight/strength/power training facilities attached to the pools
(usually included as part & parcel of Training complex - as well as staffed by volunteers from the student body completing their stages, supervised by 1 or 2 qualified athletic personnel....Here they are maintained by the local community as an open membership clubs - with set hours for Provincial teams, with membership dues used to offset maintenance and professional salaries - Half/Half government built)
Research libraries attached to the pool
(Part of the University educational or swim Association facilty - Govt assisted, but not Govt run)

Government interaction should be based on Number of participants, Initiative of associations, and National & International results..

Lewwe start with dat nah!

 ;D Couple years ago ah just show lilman a picture and is like he go roar and take off like he get the scent,  :rotfl:, but these days as he start facing real competition, he does just say, "we'll see whats up head to head"... just a few mths older, and 3 secs faster than ah Angel, dah must be are ArchAngel boy!...ah show the Angel, he went to church by heself this morning   :devil: ah woulda go, but ah wake up too late...ah ask lilman how come he didn't go..he say "Dad, I can pray at home, can't I"...I guess it really not all about swimming only....what's happeninnggg to meeee   :rotfl:

lilman had day 1 of his last meet today, his closest comp. was his teammate, and that wasn't to close...he tried his best...Mammy vex, they made a mistake in his 200 IM, he did 2:44 by her watch, by Video camera...they post 2:47, closest boy was 3 someting, which I say still good - he still drop 3 secs, mammy say that 3 sec difference, means 2 boys from the pool down the road still #1 in quebec, and we pool down at 6 th...I say "So", next time we meet dem dey go be in for a big surprise, she say as this is his last meet, and he moving up, he not seeing them boys for 2 years....ah still doh get it...ah think is because one of those boys is the boy who tell lilman (3 yrs ago) when we just started, "You not so good", from that day lilman start to train hard...like mammy still ent taking dat.. ::)
200 bk : ah think he drop 3,4 secs too...did bout 2:4T sumting , an he kinda slowed down,
50 br: he drop 2 sec: did 45 sumting
 he said too bad he couldn't swim with the P1/P2 kids, he think he could go faster...Tomorrow, 100 Im(8th), 50 Bk(1), 200 Fr(11), he say he going an try for #1 in Canada, not just quebec...ah say "Yeah ? but ent yuh #1 in back ahready", he say " so... I'm going to try to beat myself dad" ....sometimes he doh mean nutten eh, but the tone does get to meh...ah watch mammy, ah watch he, ah watch mammy..mammy still vex...ah close meh mind, an just say "Oh Good"   :-\  8)


add: Mzting did only the 200 IM in the P1/P2 meet in an attempt to get the P2 designation...she needed to get 2:40, in Feb, she did 2:40.33...yuh know today she did 2:40.75......she come out the pool all sad an ting...the coach went over , he tell her something, she cheer up , and then 2 minutes later all of ah sudden ah sad face again....apparently when she ask, the timer said 2 forty SEVEN, so she thought 2:47, and was all down, then the coach tell her "No, it was very good 2:40.75", and she feel better, till she realize she miss the P2 by .75, and couldn't beat he Feb time....She wasn't overly down doh, cause it means she will swim 'P1 Champs', where she would probably be near top of the group, but Angel has the P2 (P2 Champs), so means 1 xtraswim weekend tieup..oh well...they doing well, we thankfull..... how that sayin go..
water, water everywhere, an not ah drop for ah decent drink  ?  :devil:

Last meet (Angel) start this Thursday...P2s, the top in the province, even some Nationals..as last time, if the boy make any finals is an accomplishment, doh he has good chances in the 50 fr & back...Medal worth ah blocko for sure.. ...eh wha..."no, I nuh lookin fo any excuse to party"..."badges, Badges, we doh need no stinkin badges"  :devil:


Day 1: Qualify 50 fr, and place 3 rd(28:43) in the final....I was sure he win..get out touch..ammm Backyard by fridge nextweek saturday   :beermug:
Day2: Qualify 9th 200 fr, 3rd 50 Bk..  :wavetowel: :wavetowel: Final tonight, gw... final postponed to Day 4 due to Thunder showers
Day 3: 400 fr 15th (5:08) ,200 Br 21 st (3:18) not even close to finals....good swims for him anyway, won both heats...Started of 4x50 relay for 11-12, did 28.32, then did 3rd leg of 13-14, have him clocked at 27.91  :o
found out if they count the relay, he would break the club LC record(28.35)...if they don't, he still have a whole year...

Day 4: 200 bk, 50 fly in dah mawnin, 200 fr, 50 bk finals in afternoon, plus he might be close in the 2 morning events, plus he doing 50 bk in the IM relay (11-12)...and maybe helping out the 13-14 boys too.. ah tired just thinking bout it

 :applause: :cheers: :party: :wavetowel: :chilling: :beermug: :beermug: :puking: :sleepy:

K..ah lil sober now

the boy make finals in 5 of 8 events..improve time in all 7...medal(bronze) in 1.. Move onto the Canada top 50 list for his year in 7, Free: 50 - 3 rd, 200 - 12th, 400 -34th; Back: 50 - 5 th, 200 - 26 th; Breast : 50 - 5th, 200  -48 th; Fly :50 - 9 th ... :thumbsup:
50 fr - 28.43, (28.32 1st leg relay, 27.91 3 rd leg of 13-14 relay)
 we were very proud, and doh he was dead tired, he still manage to be in good spirits...
He brother completely playing he ignoring the successes, an we leaving it just so. His only question : "Am I swimming that meet next year ?" Me: Yes ..He: "Will my brother be at the same meet ?" Me: Yes ...He : "Ooh, Good"...end of talk


Day 4 : had to do a swim off and 5 finals,plus 2 relays (11-12(bk) & 13-14(fr))..although he started with the swimoff for 10 th pl for the breast final, by dropping another 2 sec from the prelims (where he dropped 3 secs), I think this, his normally weakest stoke, took a toll on him, and he struggled through the rest of the day....In many of his finals he was the only boy of the lower age group (11 yr old)..although the boy who won the 50 fr(28.27) & Fl(29.81), was also 11. He normally lives & swims in Hawaii, but comes back for the summer..we saw him last year as well....Hopefully next year we go haveall 3 in this top final meet..daiz it for Winter swimming....YYEeeeaaaahhhhh   :wavetowel: :wavetowel: :wavetowel: :party:

lil bachanal was...in the same park as the swim meet had "Week-ends du Monde" and Saturday was Jamaica day, Cambodian day, Arab day amongst others (big parc, actually it's an island), and Sunday was Dominican Republic day and I stop right dey (didn't care bout what else)...an ah nearly miss some races gaping..buh each time ah ketch mehself just in time an run back quick quick (after Mammy text meh to see whey ah is)...didn't see no show doh...well except at a Brazilian dance school booth.....lawd have mussy....1 or 2 spectators going to the DR show area, went #1 in Canada for me doh   :-* :rotfl: :devil:

Doh know who swimming what tonight, but lilman, ask meh to drive by the pool last Sunday to check with the coach what they go register him for in the Big meet Saturday....and he brudda...ah say wha, yuh wha see if yuh going up against him, he say "No Dad, U doh understand"- (ah does fuhget dem know more than me)- "It because we will get maximum points if we both swim the back, he does the free, I do the fly, and the other boys fight up for the breast, which doh he(angel) probably can beat our teammates, he would lose in the final, and they could get same points as him".......huh....Wheyyy..Meh boy growing up... :'(
"that very good, how yuh work that out", He hit meh "Easy..it only makes sense"....Wow

when we get home...  :) ah rush to tell mammy, how we boy maturing an ting....She say, really, why ? ah explain the logistics...She yeah, ah had a lil time trying to convince him how it would work out better for the team, he was hoping he didn't have to go up against he bro ( who kinda hot right now), but then she show him how it will best serve the other boys supporting them and strengthen the team, and he finally agreed.....
 :o >:(
ah say "oh"....ah couldn't go through how he pull ah nex one on meh ....nice one

We lorse 540 to 520 las nite, had we won we would have picked up the all-season trophy, Lost it in the last 2 relays (Snrs and we had we national swimmers)....Mzting, won the free, placed 3 rd in breast, Angel won the free and back beating Lilman...who wasn't to happy,cause he didn't beat his time either (did 35.53), buh he come over breathing hard, chest heaving an ting, ah feel he wha cry, buh actin like he juust out-ah breath...because ah yesterday, ah wanted to hit him with "Ah see the Emergency backstroke let yuh down", cause he DID try and bring it , but he too sensitive, and it woulda mash him up, and he still had the fly to do, so ah concientiously hold meh tongue...well he went out and do his best time of the summer in the fly, 33.sumting....and come over no big high-five no puff chess, humble humble...He really growing up...ah say "Good job, guy"....he look up and meh mind start to race...Oh Gorm, he go spoil it....He say "Thanks dad, we will see how I'm gonna do on Saturday at semis....Especially in the back"....I say "it's ok, just do yuh best, yuh still have another year at this level"..He say, "Oh, I will "....Me thinks race ON, buh ah feelin d Angel feelin it....who takin bets

Saturday semis...they all won there individual heats...When the sections results were compiliated to determine the finalist for next Saturday..
Angel : 1st 50 free (28.64), 1st 50 back (33.87) (updated)
Lilman : 3rd 50 back(36.33), 1st 50 fly (34.07)
MzTing : 1st 50 free(28.74), 1st 50 fly (32.27)

Needless to say, fight break out Sunday, with lilman "confiscating" the Angel bed & pillow   ???  all just before he give me some mouth, ah say that is inappropiate and uncalled for he sayin "I'm just enjoying myself, what's your problem", and as ah step  he dash to he bedroom, that is when he confiscate he brother stuff, Mammy end up havin to share some licks and everything was seemingly back to normal this morning, with him apolegizing to he mudda & me, we think we know what cause the whole scene(he hasn't beaten his time all summer in back), buh we decide not to go there...I just point out to him, both he and he sis have another year at that age group, so doh dig....an we leave it at that...
I said "Saturday we will see if you guys can hold on to those rankings, good luck", he say, "Thanks dad, they will need it"   ::)  ah say, "wha. yuh mean u doh need it ?" he say, "uh huh" and buss it  ???

he usually well behaved eh, buh sometimes ah feel the boy does lose it, either that r I does lose it

What ah weekend...Finals Saturday, then rush off to Angel U12-football Tournament, then off to my game against Braves from TO, lime after, lime some more..then Sunday morning 9 am game for Angel, then his team make finals 3:30, then off to Summer pool presentation, then reach home and pass out...TV on ManU-Fulham...wake up dis mornin real beabea...
Was a good weekend, except ah twist meh good knee in the Braves game  (lasted ah whole 20 minutes doh, setup 2), we lorse 3-2.....ah not even standing up on ah artificial field again....ah didn't even feel when ah do the twist, juss so,juss so, meh foot went numb...buh ah follow that numbness up(head) at the lime, then this morning all that wear off...pressure...Now for the real news
Angel: 1st 50 free(28.09) & 50 Back(33.39)...Went #2 on all-regional list in 50 free, just missed the record - 28.00 - but broke our pool record, 28.43. Went #6 on alltime list, and broke our pool record as well. Collected most outstanding swimmer at our pool presentation.
MzTing :  2nd 50 free (28.69), 2nd 50 fly (32.15). Didn't make regional all-time top 10 in either, and missed our pool record (free: 28.37), and although she did break the fly record, her 2nd place was to her teamate, who got it (31.93).and she gets to repeat next year..
Lilman, also repeating next year: 3rd 50 back(34.85- didn't make top 10 list), 2nd 50 fly(32.66- 7 th alltime), and he was so happy he beat his times, he didn't even consider Angel winning...an saying can't wait for next year..Both he & MzTing won MVP for their respective age groups...Fight only breakout Sunday after the pool presentation, when we get home...ah didn't expect it, buh when ah think about it, ah think when he get MVP, and realize Angel get best overall boy, that mustbe do it...

Angel team win the football, 5-0, 3-0, 8-0, Final 3-1..Angel (played Stopper) keep going on how, he wha switch to intercity football next summer, cause he does have more fun playing that....or saying maybe we(he & Mzting) could switch pools into another region where most of his winter swimming friends are...we go have to work that out next year, especially as Lilman dun set sights on, next year records, and that Overall boy trophy....Cross that bridge, when we come to it yes... 

Summer swimming DUN !.   :wavetowel:  no swimming for 2 weeks, till we start back winter swimming and driving all over the place and pick up from school, and drop 1 home, and go back get the next 2 and.....well nothing for ah whole week, cause school start next week...ah go settle for that....ah ain't tell Mammy yet, buh ah going an try & play next Wednesday, last O45 game....it might be for life, cause it have no waiting to get better nah...

well training start back..since our pool under repairs for the next 3 months, winter snowstorms included, mzting will be training at a college ONLY half hour down the highway, and 1/2 hr later the boys training only 15 minutes in the other direction...so far this 1st week everyone make it on time (not cold yet)..1st meet, all 3 will be together, is the end of October...basically the boys will depend on competition from each other and the other clubs, although lilman does try to push himself in practice, angel don't, and usually about 2 back in a different lane..so lilman not feeling it, until the last set, where they race...and of course Angel doing a different leg in the relay...anyway, so far, 1st week...no fight, there coach is the Canadian waterpolo coach, and would only be back next week, so once he start we will see...
Overheard from one of Mzting friends who just move up to seniors
"This training is Hell"
2nd yr senior:"Not really, this is only the morning warmup"
 :rotfl:

ah glad me in try dis sport nah  :beermug:

good news: the 2nd fastest boy is returning next week..our boys 11-12 relay team is back to full strength..
 
Mzting relay team that broke the provincial record 2 years ago, is re-united this year, and could potentially break the 13-14 free & Medley record again

We would be looking good for the provincials, even if we are in Tier 1 because of us winning Tier 2 last year and moving up to swim against the big clubs.

The bad news : Politics rears it ugly head, once again. The Provincial federation has decalred our clubs amongst 2 others as only able to swim exhibition relays, as we are a union of 2 or more different pools forming 1 club, even though we have always been, as our 2nd pool is 10 km away and has a membership of bout less than 50 kids, they just wanted to be associated with a club, they can go meets with, and not travel far to practice, and our total club membership still does not equal any of the other top Tier clubs. Since relays count for double points, chances are we would come last and be demoted back to Tier 2, due to this ruling.....Lot of ppl pissed, mammy dun send email to our head coach to ask him wha he go do bout dat...she not happy.. :-\ real bad news for me, when mammy not happy  ::)

MzTing & Lilman selected to be awarded Regional awards for last year.
Have been observing a few of the early meets this season, and noticed very few ppl doing best times, maybe 1st meet ppl are just kicking in again, better we start adjusting everyone expectations before everybody gets disappointed, doh with lilman, he cyah help taking on.. so far in practice everybody lookin faster doh...Angel leading the 50 sets by 3_4 secs, followed by lilman 2 secs ahead ah the stronger girls, then the other boys.. Angel grow bout 5 '' (bout 5'7'' now) over the summer, and he have a quiet confidence now(he strong like rass too, I make ah joke an dip for the belt, he know ah was joking, but more than dat, he wrestle meh, and almost take whey the belt from meh yes.....ah had to give him 2 bodyslam, dodge he drop kick, an buss the drunken master/ snake style to win it back, before ah get him to run off. - mammy say , How yuh breathin so, yuh better stop playin with him so rough, otherwise yuh go kill yuhself :D ;D jus kidding we does mostly juss graple lil bit, buh he lil ripped for ah 12 yr old, and now with all the training an my lack of,dey doh bun at all, make an ah realize how ah ole like rass for real -, lilman still pushin him doh, buh lil yellin an chuckin break out in the dressing room - doh lilman only reachin he chest, cause Angel tell lilman to keep the shouting down in the dressing room....well ah straighten dat out, with talk, and everybody apologised, and everyone tight again...Lilman not getting upset at all over trailing him in swimming, cause he figures once he grow, he will be beating him. 'no problem'...Right now, he is the shortest of the 3, and sure that is why they beating him..

Goin to ah Mzting practice for the 1st time tonight, she dun tell meh, "no comments please dad"  >:(
wha she mean by that...supposed ah have good comments or something good to say...*steups*
14 yrs girls Nikiminajes is something else yes...doh remember so much chat from meh older ones when dey was that age, dem in ey late 20s early 30s an dey still doh give meh mouth like these 3...the older girl say, "Dad all you had to do was 'the look', these guys think the look is the funniest monkey face ever"...."good luck with that, I'm out"   Me: "oh Gorm, help meh nah" :'( :'( ;D   She: " :rotfl: , I never saw that look on you before"
