CLUB NEWS

imgI just love April! Everything is in bloom, the weather is beautiful and most important... THE OJAI TOURNAMENT!! It is always great to be able to sit back and watch some of the greatest college athletes compete here at the club. This year will be a little different as we switch to a team competition format. I could try to explain it in detail but I might just confuse you more. I can tell you as a former college tennis player, it is an amazing format with lots of energy and excitement. There is really nothing else like it in tennis. I encourage everyone to drop by the club for lunch and watch some amazing PAC-12 ladies tennis! I hope everyone has a great April!!

See Ya at the Club!

Ryan

NEW 2017 SPRING LAP POOL SCHEDULE

SHARING A LAP LANE

Many times at OVAC you will find an empty lane that's all your own, but sometimes you will show up at the pool for your swim and see that each lane has one or more swimmers already going or a class in session.
This doesn't mean you're out of luck. A single lane can accommodate several swimmers (just go watch a swim team practice) provided they all go at a comparable pace. Take a minute to observe each of the lanes and get a sense of which one you match up with best. Some pools designate slow lanes and fast lanes, but seeing the swimmers that are already going is an even better gauge.
If you're ready to pick a lane and start swimming, make sure everyone in that lane is aware that you're going to join them. Sit by the edge of the pool and wait for them to finish a set, or wave a kickboard underwater to get their attention, or jump in and stand in the corner of the lane until they acknowledge you're joining them. Use one of these techniques to share the lane:
Splitting the Lane:
In this scenario, one of you swims on one side of the lane and one of you swims on the other, the black line separating the lane down the middle. If you're splitting the lane, you stay in your half no matter what.
Circle Swim:
Much like traffic on a road, always swim on the right side of the lane. This means swimming on one side of the lane going down and the other side of the lane coming back. Swimmers move in a counterclockwise circle, hence the name.
Enjoy your swim!

LOOKING TO BUILD A STRONGER & HEALTHIER SQUAT?

-Danielle Williams, Fitness Director

The squat is one of the kingpins to building strength and great looking buns. Unfortunately, a strong, stable and healthy squat can be daunting and elusive to develop. The Goblet Squat is a great exercise to develop the proper ankle, knee and hip tracking necessary for a healthy squat in the correct upright posture position (yes, your core will be working). The Goblet Squat allows you to explore a more comfortable, balanced squat with the help of a counterbalance to assist in a more upright squat patterning.Goblet Squats are often done with light to moderate loading under slow, contracted, and controlled movements. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O6bdMT152tc
