Do you have a background with swimming? Genuinely curious.You swim what they tell you to swim.
If it’s a dual meet, the coach is likely trying to steal points from somewhere and you just need to do what you’re told. A dedicated sprinter in high school or most levels of college just isn’t a very useful piece - the shorter races are a spot where a coach can put a less advanced swimmer if he thinks he can steal points moving someone else around. If you’re pouting about having to go 100 or 200 yards, there’s likely a method to his madness and you should get over it. And also swim faster.
If it’s a USA Swimming event and it’s not a dual meet, your coach just hates you and you should consider a new club.
