What is the right amount of pushing and training for our child-athletes? Check out this @fox17online interview (link in bio -> Blog) with @nicoledfox17 to hear more about giving your kids a choice, teaching them about the effort it takes to be successful, and how to be sure fun remains part of the experience. She interviewed a wonderful family to illustrate, and the toddler doing squats was the best! ... Which tip is most helpful or challenging for you as a parent?
I have witnessed and personally experienced the benefits of athletics - the growth from achieving success, overcoming challenges, and learning from defeat. I believe athletics develops many strong characteristics including the courage to try, to lead, to persist, and to stand up for what is right.
In recent years our society has witnessed reports of disturbing behavior within the athletic community long hidden in the shadows. The strength of character illustrated by those who stand up and demand change through the act of illuminating traumatic personal experiences is, in my opinion, heroic.
As an athlete, a coach, a sponsor, a father, a friend, and a small business owner serving the needs of athletes of all ages, I support the courageous individuals who bring these experiences into the light. I am encouraged that the same characteristics which help individuals achieve their athletic goals also gives them the strength to demand change. It’s your courage that now empowers others.
A limited supply of “Courage” swim caps are now available for no cost at Pannell Swim Shop (shipping charge will be be applied to online orders). We support athletes, families, teams, volunteers, and all the individuals who make athletics great. #courage

💗These 3 amaze me and inspire me every day. 💗
This summer other sports camps and games kept them from attending a lot of swim team practices, so they got in the water on their own, at other times and practiced. ---
They showed up this weekend ready to rock swim champs, proudly represent their team, and their hard work paid off....they brought home some nice lookin' hardware! ---
3 Golds, 2 Silvers and even an honorary gold for the baby swimming in her second annual 6yrs & under race with me. 🥇🥇🥇🥈🥈🏅
At the end of the day, I could have cared less where they placed, or if they even placed at all......I'm proud of them no matter what. But holy geez, I need some of their athleticism to rub off on me. 😂
