Hello! This email is long overdue. My daughter, Emma had the privilege about 3 years ago to participate in a private swim camp with Coach Richard Hall with a group put together by Jon Zuchowski in Islamorada. Emma was not quite 8 at the time, and Coach Richard was wonderful with her. He worked on her freestyle and butterfly form, and he told her if she kept it up she’d win the gold. Well, last Spring Emma competed in her first National meet, the NCSA Elite Showcase, and took home 8th place in the 500 free and 100 fly in her age group. And this summer, Emma became a 2x Florida Jr Olympics Champion in the 200 and 400 free, breaking a 4 year old team record in the 200 free AND she got silver in the 100 fly and bronze in the 50 fly! She loved her time with Coach Richard at The Race Club and we hope to get back down to you again some time in the next year. Please pass our gratitude to Coach Richard for his part in helping Emma achieve what was once a dream! He is a wonderful coach!
Warmest Regards, Kelly Herrera
