Well obviously it's PARTLY his fault but the kids Will take their time to learn so cut the man some slack.

Hi, I'm a horrible coach who can't teach 11 year olds how to float, so I'm going to take out my failure on you guys. but seriously, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger everyday.

Sounds like my swim coach. "2500 breast stroke. If you don't complete it by the end of practice, your going to do an extra 1000 butterfly." For those who don't know, a 2500 is 104 laps nonstop. Or 102, not quite sure. I'm quite used to it though, and I don't mind, he switched around the strokes, so...

37, a 2500 is a max of 100 laps, assuming you're swimming 25m lengths. Although, my practices consist of 50m laps, so that would be a total of 50 laps. I know the feeling, our coach makes us swim a 3000 free for time.

116 it's really nothing. My practices consist of 4-6 miles each (2 hours) which I do back to back after school with dryland inbetween. 50 laps really isn't much.

I feel your pain completely. One time when one kid was one minute late for practice, my coach made us all swim 12x200 fly on 2:55. It was so bad that after the 10th it didn't bother me because my body felt numb :/

Also, #24 you have no idea what you're talking about. If you don't swim you can't say that. Doing that much swimming continuously as punishment probably took away from time of their main set, which is prepared everyday to a certain goal. So it was probably really just a waste of time and probably just tired them out.

I've been swimming for 10+ years and I have had amazing coaches and terrible ones. I just call op a pussy. This is how you get great. Regardless of who's "fault" it was stop complaining and do it. Isn't that why you are there? To get better.

154- don't believe everything you read. Selection for the Olympics is a few months before the start of the games.. This guy could be any old chump claiming to go the Olympics. It would be interesting to see his profile in 4 years time.. Good luck to him anyway

105- which swim team are you on? I am 14 and I swim in the senior group ( with 17-18 year olds) for my club because I'm pretty good too if I do say so myself. Also 105, have you made senior nats?

I didn't know penises could coach swim teams, let alone swim.

For future reference, #83, you're supposed to say "I didn't know penises could swim, let alone teach swim class". The harder activity goes after.
