USA swim rep visits Tallahatchie Tidal Wave
The Tallahatchie Tidal Wave received a very special visitor at the Baptist Heathplex in USA Swimming Club Development Consultant Dave Thomas.
Thomas stopped in New Albany on his way to attend the Mississippi long-course state championships, and spent time learning about the Tidal Wave program, head coach Joanna Manning said.
“It is quite an honor to have a USA swimming representative come see and learn about what programming we do for the community. Mr. Thomas admired our dedication to the sport of swimming and the use of nationally recognized methods of swim stroke development,” Manning said.
Thomas’ visit was in part to learn about the future plans of the Tallahatchie Aquatics program, including a hope to build a new public facility to increase pogramming and promote swimming in the community.
“Teaching your community to swim is one of the most important things we can do. With 10 people drowning every day in this country, we need to make sure all citizens know how to swim. It is a great activity for the body, mind and spirit,” Thomas said.
