Swim Team


Question Posted Tuesday November 7 2006, 4:57 pm

Hello,

We got a new coach for my high school swim team. She is pretty tough. We have a morning practice and an afternoon practice. However, I have way too much homework to actually do all this swimming! I am very concerned about my work and it comes first. Also, I will only have twenty less minutes to change into my uniform, get to my locker and get to class after getting out of swimming. I also have no time to eat breakfast. My parents keep on saying that they will talk to her, but I don't even know if I want to be on such a demanding team. I do swimming for personal enjoyment and exercise, not to be super competitive. I don't think my mom understands that I am not a competitive person and will break down under such a high-stress regimen. Any advice? I am involved 2 clubs, but without swimming, no sports.
Thanks.

Eating breakfast is certainly important, and you won't be able to concentrate as well without it. If you enjoy swimming for recreational reasons of course you should continue swimming, but on your own schedule. Perhaps there are summer swim sports that you can join and drop the competition during the school year. The involvement in a sport is important but unless you plan to continue that sport as a career, your grades are a priority right now. If you burn the candle at both ends, you will burn out. Sports in high school should be fun, but when they become ultra demanding the fun is gone, too bad coaches don't see it that way too. Sometimes we have to know when to say "when".
