Modesto Sharks

Saturday the Modesto Sharks had another swim meet and was it long. We got the kids there at 6am and got home just before 7pm. They did well and had fun. With a little harder training they’ll be awesome.

What I don’t get is why the parents of the swimmers don’t participate in volunteering in the meet. I had to pull a double shift because none of the parents got involved. This is a great disappointment to all. For three years the I’ve seen very poor participation with most of the parents.

I blame a lot of it on the organizers of the team. I accept the poor coaching but not the disorganization. It should be required for everyone to participate or pay extra for not getting involved. Team members must mandate involvement. I spent a good part of Saturday watching other teams and there is a significant difference. Let’s get our act together.
