2018 SWIM TEAM COACHING STAFF 

 

We are looking forward to another great season of swimming competition.  Nomahegan is excited to announce that Tyler Lessner will be returning as Head Coach after a great 2017 season. Meghan Myers will join Tyler as a Co-Head Coach in an effort to enrich the teaching program at Nomahegan. We are also delighted to announce that Assistant Coaches Aidan Donadio, Nick Youssef and Emily McGann will be back to share their swim experience and technique with our Nomahegan swimmers.  

 

 

REGISTRATION AND SWIMMER PROFILE FORM 

 

All parents must return the registration form for their children if they will be participating on the teams.  Please send the form with payment to Mike Linenberg (can be dropped off at the Nomahegan gatehouse or mailed to his home -- address provided on the form) as soon as possible but no later than June 12, 2018.  Please complete and sign the waiver on the form.  This waiver assures your child’s fitness to participate and is required by the management of the club in order to comply with current insurance requirements. Also, a Swimmer Profile form should be completed for all participants on the swim team.  Please submit both forms together.  Changes to this form can be e-mailed to Coach Tyler throughout the season. 

 

OFFICIALS' TRAINING

 

As each new season begins, we find ourselves in need of officials to run our meets.  A swim team cannot exist without officials.  The training course for a summer swim team only lasts approximately 1 1/2 hours.  The course this season is scheduled for Wednesday, June 28 at 7:30 pm at the First United Methodist Church, 130 Ferris Place, Westfield (across from the Westfield YMCA).  This is a great opportunity to help out our swim team as well as gain a better understanding of the sport.  Please contact Mike Linenberg or Monica Morin to sign-up for this course.

 

NEW TO THE SWIM TEAM

 

Nomahegan swim team is a great way for your child to meet other pool members, get some exercise, and enjoy a little competitive racing.  Any child 5 or over who can swim two laps of freestyle in the deep lap pool and is comfortable in practice can join the team.  All new members to the swim team should plan to meet with Coach Tyler or Coach Meghan on Monday, June 11 at 4:00 pm at the lap pool.

Practice is from Monday through Friday.  Swim team practice is scheduled according to age and swimming ability.  Coach Tyler and Coach Meghan will have a swim team practice schedule posted to let you know which time slot each swimmer has been assigned.  Furthermore, the schedule is set so that each swimmer can also participate in the Club’s tennis program as well as sign-up for swim lessons (which is suggested for our younger swimmers who are still developing their strokes).

 

Please feel free to e-mail Coach Tyler or Coach Meghan if you have any concerns regarding your child’s practice.  Swimmers should plan to practice daily.  If a swimmer also practices elsewhere, please make Coach Tyler and Coach Meghan aware.
