Swim Team & Water Polo Update


Winter swim team and water polo are in full swing. We still have spots open for all levels! Call the club today to get registered. Coach James is completely engaged and ramping up the fun in learning while the balmy winter holds steady. This is our first session of water polo for the new year. We are focusing on using proper technique and safety equipment, playing in a safe environment, practicing good sportsmanship, following the rules and making new friends. Swim team has been focusing on side breathing. Better technique makes for a stronger swimmer. You glide most easily in the water on your side, so you need to spend more time there. Kids are stoked and looking stronger each week
