How do you dive to were your goggles don't mess up? Sometimes they fall of my face sometimes they don't

You’re not using the right ones. Use the ones with adjustable bridges, they will make it easier. Also, use bungee straps to make it easier to fit.

14 year old girl 2:20 200 breast and 1:05 100 breast (yards) would you say I'm not a sprinter? (as far as breastroke)

Breaststroke disciplines only go up to the 200 so i would say that you are definitely a sprinter if Breast is your best stroke.

Is 1:23 100m fly good? C: it's my first year with swimming the event. I keep dropping time. Our varsity time is 1:15. Is it crazy to think that I'll make it?

SCY? i think its pretty good? If your varsity time is 115 you are not that far away. Just keep practicing and watch your timing

I'm a 16 year old guy and I've been swimming competitively for 2 years. My 100 free time is a 1:00.6. And my 50 time is a 26 flat. Are those good times?

for your 50 i think its pretty coooool. but if your time is 26 flat for a 50 you should be making about 52-58 seconds for the 100 

but its pretty cool still

I am 14 and my time for 100m free is 1.08 I was wondering if this was alright and what kind of time I should be aiming for this year

since youre about to be 15 try to go under 1 minute. just work on your turns and dives and you should be under 1minute in no time.

Its fine for your age but i feel like its a pretty slow 50m split.. you were somewhere around 54-56 seconds… try to bring it down.

Hey :) im 13 and i swim competitively for about 3 years , i wanted to ask if 32.02 is a good 50m time ? It was my first time on a 50m pool and i wasnt used to not having a flip turn ... Thanks :)

I think its fine if your 50free time is under 33 on a 25m pool. It should probably be faster but keep trying

I've been swimming competitively for 4 years and my 50m free is a 34 :/

You are either not a sprinter or free is not your best stroke. 

There’s this guy in my swim team and he is soooooo goood at breast and fly but doing free is just his worst thing ever

Hii! So recently I've felt soo sick after morning practices. I think it's because of what I eat, or lack of what I eat. I usually have breakfast after I swim because I want to avoid cramps. Do you have any suggestions about intake before/after morning practices?

i usually bring chocolate milk to drink during morning practice since it has a lot of protein and it fills you up. Make sure you buy the real kind and not nesquik lol. usually organic chocolate milk is not as good as the regular one so buy the regular one. 

Also, a banana or protein bar before should help.
