May 16, 2015A couple of weeks ago we added Three Village Swim Club Long Course Team Records. The records are from the year 2000 and later, as we don't have accurate records from before that time. Coach Mike and Coach Kate still have a several Long Course records for 15-18 age groups.
TVSC Long Course Team Records Posted
At the Spring Kick-off meet last weekend, one team record was broken. Jason Louser broke the 14 year (2001) 200 breast record for 13-14 boys from Shaun Armstrong by 4 1/2 seconds to 2:31.7. Congrats!

Annual TVSC Dinner Dance
Three Village Swim Club held its annual Dinner Dance at Villa Lombardi's in Holbrook to celebrate the accomplishments of its athletes this past short course season.
This party is still the hot ticket in town: 400 party goers: swimmers, their families, TVSC coaching staff and their guests all dressed up. Many TVSC swimmers just stay with this year-round tough sport of competitive swimming all these years for the Dinner Dance alone . . . . .
Our club's yearly Dinner Dance surely beats the end-of-the-season < fill-in your youth sport > pizza party at the local pizza parlor and it surely beats the school dance in the smelly school gym.
The party had it all: food and ice-cream bar for desert, DJ, dancing (and who says swimmers are "klutzy" on land?), awards, year-books, graduating senior recognition, dancing, graduating senior video, party favors, dancing and more dancing.
One of the fun parts of the Dinner Dance is guessing who the kids are all dressed up and for several of the younger swimmers, who put their bathing caps on at home before going to practice, it is the first time we saw their hair color.
TVSC Board, thank-you for organizing another great party and TVSC swim families, thank-you for the coaches' gifts.
April 27, 2015From USA-Swimming web site: How many times have you reached for a bag of chips while studying, or guzzled a 20-ounce soft drink because you were thirsty? Swimmers burn a lot of calories and snacking is a good way to replace calories lost in exercise and replenish nutrients for the next practice or meet. However, mindless snacking when you are bored or stressed out often leads to poor choices. So next time you want a snack, ask two questions. “Am I really hungry?” and “What can I eat that will support my training?” Read more . . .

The "long" 2014-2015 short-course season concluded this past weekend with the 2015 ASCSC County Championships at the Nassau Aquatic Center. While TVSC did not win the Counties, our 119 athletes still swam great, with 282 best times (55%) and total time drop of 456 seconds (7+ minutes).
New time standards: 5 'AAAA' times, 23 'AAA' times, 36 'AA' times, 25 'A' times, and 23 'BB' times.
At the end of SC season our seniors still amazingly achieved 2 new NCSA cuts, 13 new Sectional cuts, and 8 new Sr Mets cuts, making this year's Counties one of the most succesful ones in Three Village Swim Club history.
Congrats to Long Island Express athletes for winning their first ever ASCSC County Champioships.
For several of the 13 graduating Seniors this was the bittersweet last meet of their swimming careers, as they choose not become a student athlete in college, while for the others it was the bittersweet last short course meet competing for Three Village Swim Club.
An incomplete list of high lights: one of the few great team meets each season (the others Relay Carnival and December Holiday Classic) . . . . .
