Adib Razavi and Alexander Arthur, Directors

 

Welcome to TAC Sports, Aquatics and the Lifetime Skills Academy, where students "Grow, Lead and Learn ." It is our mission to help our students achieve their maximum potential in sports, education, aquatics, and in skills and character.

We believe that each child should get the attention they deserve and the tools and system to be excited about their own development. That’s the reason why we’ve made our camps choose-your-own week programming, so that children can customize their own experience.

We teach leadership and strive to transform our student's self-identity, and students gain confidence from their change in character, mentality and habits.

We are successful when our students are ignited in their passions and have a huge desire to improve. We have excellent coach to student ratios and every student gets the attention they deserve and need to progress.

Every child deserves the best coach who believes in them and the best system for learning, growing and leading. At TAC Sports, I believe we have the best coaches and the best system.

Now, we have taken that model and brought it to our TAC Aquatics program, ensuring that students reach their full potential in swimming as well.

We would love to see you at our swimming lessons, sports camps, education programs, development sessions, tournaments, leagues and academy!

Yours in sport education,

Our best,

Adib and Alexander

Swimming Progressions: Tips for the Beginning Swimmer

Swimming is no easy task. The average student takes a minimum of 100 hours to master a basic understanding of all the unique strokes. This amount varies with each student according to their physical fitness and their ability to understand and learn. Through my own experience working with children at TAC Sports, I have come to understand some basic principles that can be applied to all swimmers to enhance learning and the swimmer’s comfort in the water.

1. Progressions are Important

The basics of swimming are divided into a series of progressions; starting with basic floats, then moving to glides, glides with kicks, and eventually full stroke development. These progressions are a necessity for beginning swimmers. They are the foundation for each and every stroke the child will learn. Swimming like many other sports is an accumulation of skills that build upon each other. These skills introduce the foundation of swimming: the importance of good body position.

A common error I see when teaching my students is a bending at the hips causing the child’s feet to sink well below the surface. This creates a “v” shaped body position, and makes for a very inefficient stroke. Although normally this is a common problem with developing swimmers (those learning back glide for the first time), I have often encountered this when teaching back crawl as well. This is often why Level 6 can be so difficult for some swimmers.

A simple fix to ensure that the body stays close to the surface of the water is to have the swimmer focus on straightening out and pushing their body up. This may need to be supplemented with vigorous kicking below the surface of the water and a slower take off. This adjustment usually only takes a few proper tries before the swimmer understands the principle on their own.

2. Kicks are Key

One of the single most important tips I have for the beginning swimmer is to execute proper kicking techniques from the start. Developing good swimming habits is key to developing strong efficient swimmers. Poor swimming habits can develop through inconsistent teaching. Once developed, these poor habits can be hard to break and often follow the swimmer well into advanced levels. This is why the development of proper swimming technique is so important.

Kicks are key! Swimmers should use the entire force of the leg, generating power from the hips. A common error is to see flexed feet and bent knees, often causing the swimmer to make little to no progress, or in some cases appear to be moving backwards. The simple fix is pointed toes and straight legs to ensure that body position remains close to the surface of the water.

3. The Importance of Water Orientation

Do not underestimate the importance of deep and shallow water orientation. Orienting each child with the water can be one of the most challenging and yet rewarding aspects of swimming. It’s where each child’s love and passion for the sport starts. This can look like fun games of collecting sinking rings, performing underwater handstands, or exploring different ways of entering the water. These skills seem like fun games and a way for the instructor to reward their class for a job well done. These skills teach students how to coordinate their breathing, and how to explore movement through the water resulting in an integral aquatics foundation.  

A common problem that swimmers encounter throughout these activities is a lack of exhalation through their nose when moving around underwater. This allows water to enter the nose causing pain, and often stops the child from completing the task. The simple solution is to have the child exhale through their nose in situations where they are upside down.

These principles are consistently developed throughout your child’s swimming lessons, and they remain important factors towards success in each lesson. The beginning swimmer must focus on developing a strong foundation, strong kicks, good body position, and coordinating breathing. This foundation will help the swimmer become successful in the next stages of technical development.

Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween! We have had a scary good year with all of our students thus far at TAC Sports. We have seen confidence soar, memories made, students making friends and crafting superstar self-images. We appreciate every single student who has taken the steps to make themselves better and discover their passion and potential! 
As we approach All Hallows Eve, we are reminded of one thing that has bound all of our training throughout the year…FUN!

It is extremely important to incorporate fun in all that you do. It is a huge part of our positive reinforcement that helps our students to become attached and enamoured with their own skill-building experiences.

Fun is why we incorporate all sports and training into our 5 Star Development Program and our Achievements into every session..to give that element of fun in all of our training. That is why we only have the most fun, passionate coaches that lead all of our session and camps. Fun is why we are so close as a TAC Sports team.

I say…those who have FUN together, STAY together.

We want to bring the fun and the appreciation in a big way to you, by inviting you to our Client Appreciation Day on December 5th at Crescent School Fieldhouse from 1:00PM-4:00PM! 

Please RSVP your ticket to the FUN. There will be tournaments, pizza and face-painting! 

The first 10 families to RSVP to the Client Appreciation Day will get a package full of TAC Sports Swag!

We will see you there! Have a Happy Halloween and have FUN!

From the directors at TAC Sports, 
Alexander Arthur and Adib Razavi

The Compound Effect

Little decisions, little actions. They shape our destiny. As sport players and as sport coaches, every little play, every little action we take to get better can end up being a huge difference at the end of the day.

“The Compound Effect is based on the principle that decisions shape your destiny. Little, every day decisions will take you either to the life you desire or to disaster by default.”

-Darren Hardy (Publisher of Success Magazine)

This is a new principle we are enacting in our training, to get our students to focus on each play, to get that much better each day, and to stay motivated.

As coaches we can also benefit, from continuing to design lesson plans to giving it 100% each and every coaching session. Every little action adds up!

It is important to continue to be consistent in our practicing, and make sure that nothing breaks the momentum! 

Our homework to both our students and the students of our parents – read The Compound Effect by Darren Hardy, it will make a huge difference in your development!
