I have just returned from four days working with the Women’s swim coach, Jim Richardson and the Women’s Tennis coach Bitsy Ritt. I worked with them on designing their Athletic Development programs. It is always a pleasure to work with professionals who are interested in improving their knowledge to make their teams better. They both have been successful and are sincerely interested in getting better.
This is my third year with Michigan Women’s swimming. Jim has embraced a very different approach to dry land training that we instituted three years ago. There is a direct correlation with what is being done in Dryland to what is being done in the water. The results have significantly improve performance and significantly reduce should injures. I want to wish both coaches and their teams the best of luck this year.
