NEW SWIMMERS?   NEED SWIM LESSONS?   NS-SC CAN HELP!

NSSC Little Flippers Program
NSSC Swim Lessons Program is a group or private swim lessons taught @ 10:30 AM - 11:15 AM, Monday thru Thursday.  This is a pool water safety skill class  open to members and non-members.  Classes are now forming, and are taught every week beginning June 22nd.  There will be NO CLASSES in the week of July 20, 2015.

This swim program participants are made up of beginner swimmers ages 4 through 7 year olds, and older (in some instances) who have not mastered the swim team 25-meter course.  Kids must already be potty trained to be able to participate in this program!

Children who participate in the program may enter the Monday night B-meets and swim the deep end short course or the 25-meter long course.  This is a wonderful program and we hope you encourage your beginner swimmers to give it a try!

Summer and NSSC Swim Team Season is upon us.  Swimmer's ear is an infection of the outer ear canal.  The medical term for it is acute otitis externa (AOE).  It is associated with "swimmers" since residual water in the ear canal creates a moist environment that can lead to bacterial growth.  However, any excess moisture due to sweat, other water activities, or even high humidity can contribute.  Some people are simply more prone to it than others. 

PREVENTION OF SWIMMERS' EAR
  1. Make a mixture of 2 parts rubbing alcohol and 1 part white vinegar.  Put into a dropper bottle.
  2. After leaving water for extended period, dry each ear and put 2-3 drops of solution into each ear.  DO NOT rub ear canal with towel or Q-tip.  Allow gravity to let the water out.
  3. After last swim, when at home, re-apply drops, let dry for 2 to 3 minutes, then gently blow the ear canal dry with a hair dryer on low heat and low speed.

5 FOODS SWIMMERS SHOULD EAT
  1. Whole Grains: cereals, bagels, pasta and bread. (These provide you good long lasting energy)
  2. Proteins: Peanut butter, lean meat and dairy. (You should have protein before and after workouts)
  3. Fresh Fruits and Vegetables: Bananas are a great source of potassium and minerals. (Regulates water levels in the body and helps prevent cramping.)
  4. Calcium Rich Foods: Cheese, yogurt and milk. (For strong bones and protect from injury.)
  5. Fiber Rich Foods: Whole grains, apples, berries, almonds, legumes. (Helps keep athletes full and regulate the digestive tract.)
