Tide Swimming

Going above and beyond

Posted by   admin on    February 16, 2016

I received an email from a TIDE parent that I could not just file away and forget. It reminded me of why I feel so committed to and passionate about our organization. It recognized the above and beyond contributions of one of our young coaches, Tage Waite. I see the passion and dedication of our staff on a daily basis, and I am proud to serve this team with them. 

Here is what the parent wrote:

"Many times we only take the time to complain instead of praise.  Many times, we take it for granted when someone does a good job.  I would like to take a minute to let you know how truly impressed I am with Tage.  She goes above and beyond with our children.  Her love and passion for swimming emanates in our children.  Coaching is not a job but a passion.  Her work does not start when she steps on deck and end when she steps off.  She spends time outside of the pool researching ways to make our swimmers better.  Recently, she spent about an hour and a half with us at our swimmer's sports nutritionist appointment.  This goes above and beyond anything that is required of her.  I am not only thankful but truly appreciative of her hard work, passion, and love not only of swimming, but of our children. As a coach, she inspires greatness."
