Dear Parents and Prospective Swimmers,
My name is Kristin Demski and I am the head coach for the girls’ swim team. I teach Biology and Physics and this will be my second year as the girls swim coach at JTHS. Before this I coached at Lincoln Way Central High School and for the LWSA Gators. I have a strong passion for swimming and have been swimming since I was 5. My goals for the team are to promote and encourage leadership, dedication, and enthusiasm for swimming. I would like all of the girls to understand that each individual plays a valuable role on the team. Swimming involves individual races and personal best times, but it also is scored as a team and girls must work together to compete as a successful team. I am not all about winning and losing, but what I would like to see is each of the girls reaching their goals and getting their personal bests. I encourage all girls interested in swimming to pursue out of season club teams. The first day of practice will be August 14th from 4-6 pm at Inwood Athletic Club. A one-piece suit, swim cap and goggles are needed for the season. A limited supply of suits ($20), caps ($3) and goggles ($8 or $13 depending on the brand) will be for sale during the season. Feel free to e-mail me with any questions or concerns. I look forward to seeing everyone the first day of practice!
