S: "Mr Ty-der is my Best.Friend.EVA"- Nathan
FC: Mr. Tyler My 1st "Coach"
1: Nathan was 16 months old for his first Seal Swim Class. He was blessed with an awesome instructor, who told this Mom to just let go. Nathan has had a love affair with the pool ever since.
2: "You can't put a limit on anything. The more you dream, the farther you get". Michael Phelps
4: Ability may take you to the top, but it takes character to stay there.
5: Don't count the days, make the days count.
9: There is always room at the top.
10: The swimmer who says, "It can't be done" is passed by the swimmer who is doing it.
11: He who does not hope to win has already lost.
13: "I believe a leaf of grass is no less than the journey work of the stars." Walt Whitman
14: Take the best team and the worst team. Line them up and you would find very little physical difference. You would find an emotional difference. The winning team has a dedication--they won't accept defeat. "I swam the race like I trained to swim it. It is not mathematical. I just let my body do it. It is a lot easier if you let your body do what it is trained for." Ian Thorpe Go hard or go home.

15: We can not thank you enough for your kindness, dedication, and simply for believing in Nathan. He truly looks up to you, and wants to be a 'big swim racer just like his BFF Mr.Tyder.' Your parents should be so proud!

21: Nathan has been so very lucky to have you in his corner and to have learned from the best of the best. It is a gift that certainly continues to keep on giving. We LOVE that he LOVES Swimming.!
22: Hard things are put in our way, not to stop us, but to call out our courage and strength.
23: Winning is only half of it. Having fun is the other half. -Bum Phillips | Thank You Mr. Tyler!
