Are You a Boss Hoss?

Boss Hoss practices return this Saturday, June 24! If you are 10 years or older and want to take it up a notch — in other words, if you are a Boss Hoss! — show up ready to swim at 8am.

Boss Hoss practices are a step beyond the usual weekday practices. They last about 90 minutes and are usually between 3500-4000 meters. While we still focus on racing, distances may be a little longer than you are used to. If you are a year-round swimmer, you are encouraged to come to these practices because we focus a little more on high-intensity and race pace than most year-round programs.

But you don’t have to be a member of NOVA or Poseidon to benefit from these practices, you just have to have a desire to take it to the next level (and enough conditioning to last for 3000+ meters).

Swimmers who make all the Boss Hoss practices will be recognized for their dedication at our banquet at the end of the season. Last year’s Boss Hosses were: Logan Cohn, Kate Farmer, Ariel Ogden, Kristine Ogden, Madoc Winters, Nate Winters. Those are the swimmers who had perfect attendance last year; quite a few others came to several of these workouts, there are 15-20 swimmers at a typical Boss Hoss practice.
