Dear Westdale Rowers & Parents,
Please see below for a message from our newest addition to the coaching team, Tom Beshoff:
I just thought I would fire off a note to say that I’m thrilled to be a part of Westdale Rowing! From what I’ve seen these past few mornings, there’s some great potential in the squad and your coaches have done some really good work getting you to this point of the season.
I’m looking forward to working with all of the rowers at various points until June, and I’ll do my very best to help you be as fast as possible on the water. If we combine your best effort with our best effort, I can tell you that there is NO LIMIT on what you can achieve.
I don’t use quotes very often, but one that is absolute gold in our sport, is:
“What the Mind Believes, the Body will Deliver”
I’ll provide a couple of stories later this week to show you why this one really works for me. In the meantime, I’d like you to do some homework. I want you to think of your two best qualities that help the most in making you go faster. And I also want you to think of two things that you feel are standing in the way of you getting faster. I’ll be asking you at some point, for these answers.
…I highly encourage all athletes – both men’s & women’s teams – to consider Tom’s homework points above, as you’ll be called upon in this coming week to provide your responses.
