HAST KIDs Shoutouts!

Posted by Kate Reilly at Oct 13, 2023 4:28PM PDT ( 0 Comments )

Let’s hear it for our 1st 3 swimmers to earn HAST KIDs shoutouts this season!!

Alexandra Stehr, Emery Malm & Hannah Heuer each earned a shoutout for their outstanding attitudes and leadership in the pool!

Congrats and keep up the great work!!!

HAST KIDs is a reward that we have created to recognize kindness, positive interactions between athletes, and to praise positive interpersonal sk1lls. As a team our mission 1s to build technical skills in swimming; to build skills for competition, promoting good sportsmanship; and to build skills for life, encouraging cooperation and team spirit among members. We feel that it is important to recognize our athletes for their successes both in and out of the water by encouraging them in their technique but also in their positive interactions with other athletes. As we watch your athletes interacting with each other, we want to commend them for the positivity that they show.

HAST KIDs are Helpful, Altruistic, Sincere, Thoughtful, Kind, Inclusive and Decent. They treat their teammates and competitors with respect and compassion. As we coach the swimmers throughout the week we will be looking for examples of this type of behavior. We will then present the with a Shoutout certificate that recognizes their actions and take their photo with the certificate to be featured on our Facebook and Instagram page.

Helpful – giving or ready to give help
Altruistic – showing a selfless concern for the well-being of others
Sincere – acting in a genuine nature
Thoughtful – showing consideration for the needs of others Kind – having or showing a friendly, generous, and considerate nature
Inclusive – creating space for everyone
Decent – being honorable and appropriate in a course of action even if it might not be in your own best interest

Emma Dehmlow and Eva Girgen have received our latest shoutouts!!

Emma was kind enough to stick around after she was done racing to count for her teammate who was racing the mile!! Thank you for supporting your teammates, Emma!!

Eva was overheard using some very kind words to help build up one of her teammates while they were having a rough practice. Eva, your coaches love hearing you use such kind words of encouragement to help lift your teammates spirits! Keep it up!

The 1st shoutout goes to Ashtyn Stewart! Ashtyn started off her summer season with a bang! She conquered and fought through a tough 200 racing set during one of her first practices back in the pool!

It was awesome to see her grit and determination during a really challenging practice! Way to go, Ashtyn!

The 2nd shoutout goes to Lyla Kopp! Lyla showed great perseverance during the 1st LCM meet of the season when some of her events seemed a little bit daunting! She had a great attitude, worked through some tough feelings, and was able to show off her amazing racing skills!

Way to keep pushing yourself to try hard things, Lyla! Your coaches are proud of you!
