Together Everyone Achieves More

We have just returned from the 2008 Speedo Junior National Championships in Minneapolis which were held from August 4th-8th. We had a wonderful week of racing and growing as competitors. Our North Bay Aquatics team finished 9th in the combined men’s and women’s scoring and we are taking a small amount of space this week to be grateful for our swimmers’ success. In the 400 Free Relays our Men finished 3rd and our Women finished 5th. This is a significant step forward for our team from last year and as coaches we are very proud of our team!

At the meet there were many T- Shirts walking the deck and we thought you’d enjoy a sample of what we saw. We think that 3 to 5 words are about the right number but what do we know? Anyway, for your reading pleasure this week we offer the following…and if you have a favorite we’d love to hear about it! We will add here that some of these saying/quotes were attributed to certain people. We have omitted their names here simply because we cannot verify the authenticity of each statement…have some fun with this!



You can’t put a limit on anything, the more you dream the farther you get

Building character one length at a time

Committed to excellence

We stand the test of time

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then is not an act, it is a habit

Beware to lollipop of mediocrity, one lick and you’ll suck forever

My element is water, my weapon is my body, my world is swimming

Quality not quantity

Respect all, fear none

Success comes through hard work

Coaching 4 life

Want to come in 2nd? Follow me


The harder you work the harder it is to surrender

We believe in creating the wave, not riding it

We’re not here to mess around, in fact, we’re all in

Rev- it – up

Presence is more than just being there

Simply swimming

Someone may beat me but they are going to have to bleed to do it

Losers let it happen, Winners make it happen

Dream – Believe – Achieve

In the heat of battle we’re on fire

Well oiled machine

Motivation is what gets you going, habit is what keeps you going

Ludicrous speed

One team, one goal

The will to win is important, but the will to prepare is vital

Making it happen

No time outs, no substitutions, it’s now or never
