Machine Aquatics Team Update 09.06.2017

Welcome to the 2017-2018 Season with Machine Aquatics!

We wanted to take a moment to thank you for choosing MachineAquatics and allowing us the opportunity to work with your children. It is privilege for us to be able to get to know them, strengthen their love of swimming and encourage their dreams.  

Over the coming weeks you will receive a good amount of information from Machine. We will do our best to condense all the information into a weekly update email. Email Communication is the main form of communication to parents from Machine. The TeamUpdate is typically sent on a Wednesday. You will also be receiving site specific emails from your head site coach and group emails from your child’s primary coaching team. If you are not receiving messages from the team, please contact the office so that we can determine if there is a software reason for not receiving our communications.  

Please make sure you read all communications sent to you.  

If you have any questions regarding information sent out, please do not hesitate to contact us. Our team administrators are Alison (alison@machineaquatics.com) and Becky (becky@machineaquatics.com). A full list of the coaches and their email addresses is also available on the team website under the Coaches and Staff tab.

We look forward to the coming season and can’t wait to see you all at the Machine Parent Day this weekend.

Moving from Another Team? You Need the Transfer Form

If you are new to Machine and coming from another team, you’ll need to complete an athlete transfer form with PVS. There is a form on their website that must be completed by the swimmer/family.

You will need the club code for your previous team. The club code for Machine is MACH. We are in the PVS LSC. Your swimmer’s USA Swimming ID. The format for the ID is the first 6 digits are the swimmers birth date: mm/dd/yy; the next three letters

are the first three letters of athletes legal first name; the next letter is the middle

initial, followed by the first four letters of the swimmers last name

Example: Suzanne Eileen Nelson and born Aug 27, 1976 = 082776SUZENELS

If you do not have a middle initial or last name four letters or

longer, the missing characters are a star (*). John Chu would be mmddyyjoh*chu*.

Save the Date - Senior Swim Meeting

There will be a Mandatory Senior Swim meeting on Sunday, September 24th from 12- 3 pm. This meeting is for all 14 and over high school swimmers.  The topics covered at this meeting are relevant to all swimmers, regardless of group level.  If you are not able to attend the meeting, please make sure you are in contact with your coach.

Agenda

Senior Level Group Discussion 

    •    Expectations for the groups

    •    Responsibility and Ownership 

    •    Accountability

Balancing USA Swimming and your High School Swim Season

Nutrition Article of the Week

Top Tips for Choosing Beverages

by Chris Rosenbloom

So many beverage choices for young (and old) swimmers on the market. How do you choose? Let’s rethink the drinks that many of you are asking about.

Non-dairy milks (almond, cashew, coconut, etc.): These beverages, I hesitate to use the word milk, as these are not milk by the formal definition, are not all they seem to be. Let’s be clear…. there is little to no protein in these drinks. Cow’s milk has 8 grams of protein in an 8-ounce glass, and some ultra-filtered cow’s milk (such as Fairlife) has 13 grams. Almond milk has 1 gram, and coconut milk has none. A good article on these milk alternatives can be found at mysportscience.com.

Energy drinks: Energy means calories, but energy drinks also contain stimulants, like caffeine, guarana, or kola nut. The American Academy of Pediatrics says children should not drink energy drinks. Period. Small amounts of caffeine are not a problem, but the whopping doses in energy drinks can raise heart rate and blood pressure in young and old alike. Caffeine is found in small amounts in some beverages, like tea and hot chocolate, and swimmers might also get some caffeine from soft drinks (both regular and diet), coffee-flavored ice cream or yogurt, chocolate, and bottle teas. Caffeine is limited in cola-type beverages to 0.02% or 71 mg/12 ounces; however, over >130 energy drink products exceed that limit, some having as much as 500 mg/serving.

Alkaline water: Our kidneys and lungs to a fine job of keeping the body’s pH in a tightly regulated, healthy zone. Don’t waste your money on alkaline water and don’t believe the hype that they are healthier than plain old water from your tap, a bottle, or filtered in your fridge. Some claim to prevent disease, but don’t fall for it. Here’s a link to an article on some of the claims for alkaline water.

Protein water: I’ve never met an athlete that didn’t get enough protein through his or her diet, even non-meat eating vegetarians get plenty of protein from soy, beans, peas, nuts, seeds, and grains. Get your protein from real food, not bad-tasting, expensive protein waters.

Now that I’ve told you what not to spend your money on, what should you drink?

Water is best, but it can get boring. I have friend who makes “sparkling ginger water” to keep things interesting. Cut fresh ginger into slices and simmer in water with stevia leaves; strain and add to club soda or fizzy, sparkling water. If you live in an area where the tap water doesn’t taste good to you, try a pitcher filtering system to keep in your fridge.

Milk, the dairy kind. Low-fat chocolate milk is a great recovery beverage and fluid replacer. Milk, low-fat or 2%, is a protein-rich, bone-building drink for swimmers.

For hard workout days, or when exercising in hot, humid weather, use a sports drink, but alternate it with water.

And, while juice has calories and sugar, the sugar is naturally occurring in 100% fruit juice. Calcium-fortified orange juice is a good choice and, for athletes trying to gain weight, try 100% grape juice or tart cherry juice.

 

2017-2018 MACHINE WELCOME - KICK OFF!

It’s been a fast, hot summer filled with great swimming from your teammates at Machine. We see your names all over the leader-boards of the summer swim leagues. This is testament to the hard work and dedication to training that all of you bring to pool for your workouts. Also, Machine had more swimmers than ever compete on the national level this summer. 

We are proud to have you on our team and in our family as we begin Machine’s 17th season. We have created a competitive, safe and nurturing environment for our swimmers to grow and improve as athletes and individuals. Our goal each year is to be better in every aspect than we were in the previous season. We expect our swimmers and coaches to strive for greatness. 

We strongly believe that the partnership between Machine Aquatics and our families is one of the ways we excel as a community. Our lines of communication are always open and are here to we listen. We know that the best way to improve for our swimmers is to communicate with each of you, We work together to help every swimmer reach their potential. We look forward to growing and improving as a team again in the 2017-2018 season.

We have so much to look forward to this season. Machine Parent Day is only a few short weeks away on Sunday, September 10, 2017. There will be a chance to see old faces and hear all of the exciting things we have planned for you this year. We’ve also got some new cool gear that we know you are going to love - hoodies, shorts, parent shirts and more!   If you are interested in helping out at Parent Day, the link below to sign up.

The team PRELIMINARY meet schedule is posted on Google Calendar on the team website under TEAM CALENDAR.  Please make sure to block off dates for big meets and events.   In addition, we have attached a printable version to this email.  

In the coming week you will receive communication from your head site coach and your swimmer’s primary coach.  We value the partnership between swimmers and their families. Communication is a key element of this relationship. We encourage you to reach out to your coach and share any information that you feel will support the swimmer/ coach relationship.  Our ultimate goal is for everyone in the Machine Family to be set up for success.

On behalf of the Machine coaches and staff, we thank you for the privilege to work with your children this season. It’s time to get back in the water and have some fun, Machine! Looking forward to seeing everyone in the H20 soon! GO MACHINE!

Summer Hydration Tips for Swimmers

by Chris Rosenbloom

The sun beats down on the pool deck and a dip in the water makes the summer swelter feel so much better. But, just because you are in the water doesn’t mean you don’t need water in you to perform at your best and stay healthy. Recently, several swimmers have asked about what and how much to drink, and if energy drinks should be consumed for hydration.

In the heat of summer, aim for about 1 cup of water (8-ounces) every 15-20 minutes of activity. Most sports water bottles are larger than 8-ounces, so mark your bottle at 1-cup intervals so you will know how much to drink. A less precise method is to count the number of swallows…a large swallow is about an ounce, so take 8 swallows of your drink when you get a break. Cold fluids are best, and with the advances in water bottles, keeping fluids cold is easier than ever. 

Dehydration of just 3-4% of your body weight can reduce muscle strength by about 2%. So, if you are losing power in the pool, check your hydration intake to make sure you are maintaining body fluid levels. For good information on hydration and performance, see the National Athletic Trainer’s website for young athletes.

It seems odd that dehydration can occur when you are surrounded by water, but anyone who exercises in the heat can be at risk for heat illnesses. The good news is that heat illness is 100% preventable by paying attention to the early warning signs such as dizziness, cramps, lightheadedness, and fatigue. Drink cold fluids and seek some shade until the symptoms pass.

What to drink is simple. I like the advice of my fellow USA Swimming nutrition columnist, Jill Castle, who uses the “over/under rule.” For activities over an hour, drink sports drinks, and if exercising less than an hour, drink water. (For more tips from Jill’s book, Eat Like a Champion, visit her website at jillcastle.com). A good strategy for a swimmer is to drink sports drinks and then drink water. So, it isn’t always either/or, just a bit both can be effective and your taste buds happy.

And, what about energy drinks? I do not recommend energy drinks for young swimmers, and I think they can be dangerous. Caffeine is a drug, widely consumed, but still a drug. Energy drinks deliver quite a punch of caffeine. Unlike coffee, energy drinks can be consumed quickly, so a swimmer may not know how much caffeine he or she is truly getting. Don’t be fooled by the new breed on energy drinks that claim to be “natural,” “clean,” or made with “healthy ingredients.” They still contain caffeine and sometime other stimulants that no young swimmer needs. 

 

So,

Nutrition Article of the Week

What is a Healthy Food…And Does it Matter?

When talking to young athletes, someone will always ask about a specific food or beverage and says, “is this healthy?” My answer is, “it depends.” More on the reason why it depends a little later in the column.

Food marketers have a simple goal: get you to buy more of their food. What they know is that if a food carries a health claim on the package, sales go up. (Check out this overview on the more than 1,000 public comments to the Food and Drug Administration on defining “healthy.”).

A recent survey by the International Food Information Council Foundation also found that we think a food is healthier if it is fresh versus frozen (even if the nutritional value is identical), if it costs more, if it is a brand name versus a store-brand, or if it is purchased from a natural foods store versus grocery or convenience store.

Let’s break down some of the health claims on food products that might be fooling you into believing they are healthier than they really are:

    •    Wheat bread versus white bread. Wheat bread sounds healthier than white bread, but bread is made from wheat, whether is labeled white bread or wheat bread. If you want the healthier whole wheat bread, you have look at the ingredient list for “whole wheat flour” as the first ingredient.

    •    5-grain bread versus wheat bread. The confusion here comes from the word “grain.” You might know that whole grains are healthy, but a bread touring 5-grains may not contain any whole grains. Again, the only way to know if there are whole grains is to look at the ingredient list.

    •    Sugar-free yogurt. Yogurt (and milk) contain the sugar lactose; a naturally occurring sugar. Unfortunately, the nutrition label does not separate naturally occurring sugar from added sugar. A 5.3-ounce carton of yogurt (typical single serving size) can contain 4-20 grams of sugar; less sugar for plain yogurt and more for vanilla or fruit-flavored. A good goal is to stick to yogurt with 15 grams of sugar (the equivalent of 3 teaspoons of sugar) or less.

    •    Any food labelled as “natural.” There is no defining natural; a potato chip labeled as natural is not healthier than plain old chips.

Back to the opening question: “Is it healthy?” No single food can provide you with good health. It is the total diet that is important. Swimmers require many calories to get them through training and competition, so if most of your food choices are healthful, don’t worry about a single food derailing a healthy diet.
