Potential Summer Swim Team at Storrs Pond Pool
Would your children and teens enjoy the opportunity to improve their swimming and be part of a fun, summer, outdoor swim team? If so, please let us know! If there are enough families interested, Storrs Pond Recreation Area in cooperation with The Norwich Recreation Department would like to offer a swim team for area youth.
The team will be a multi-skill-level group serving ages 6-18. We will practice at the lap pool at Storrs Pond in Hanover, and will be part of the Vermont Swim Association (VSA). The team will focus on safety, fun, teamwork, fitness, and building competitive swimming skills. The season will run for seven weeks from mid-June through the first weekend in August and practices will be most weekday mornings from 8:00am – 9:00 am and occasional evenings. It is ok to miss practices or part of the season due to camps, vacations or other summer plans. Meets are at pools in the central and southern Vermont region.
The team will have beginner through advanced groups. This is not a “learn-to-swim” program. To be on the team, your swimmer must, at minimum, be able to enter the pool on his/her own without assistance from a parent, swim with his/her face in the water, and swim 25 yards (one length of the pool) unassisted, using a reasonable version of the Freestyle (“crawl”) stroke. Swimmers new to competitive swimming as well as those with many years of experience are welcome.
If you think this team might be a good fit for your family and would like more information, please email Alexa Manning at email@example.com. We can only offer swim team this summer if we have enough interest, so please let us know as soon as possible. Thank you!
