As the Fox Cities YMCA Swim Team wraps up our season and heads into our short break we wanted to let everyone know about a few opportunities to stay in the pool for our athletes and families who will be returning for a fun Spring and Summer Long Course Season.
The first opportunity will be the first week of April. Monday, April 1-Thursday, April 3 we will be offering open swim times in the evening at Buchanan Pool in Appleton. There will be coaches on deck to supervise and work with athletes from 5:30-7:30p. This is time for the athletes to come in and enjoy the water and time with their friends and coaches in whatever way they choose. Parents should treat these as practice opportunities.
The second opportunity will be the following week, Monday April 8-Thursday April 11. We will be offering private lesson opportunities for athletes to work one on one or in small groups with the coaches. We will post a signup and information about cost in the coming weeks. We ask that during the initial phase of the signup you limit your athlete to one lesson until all families have had the chance to sign up if they wish.
The third off season opportunity for the swimmers will be a week of clinics on Monday, April 15-Thursday, April 18. We will have a signup posted in the next couple of weeks with times and cost information.
All three of these opportunities are available to any athletes who are signed up to be a part of the Spring/Summer Long Course Season. You will be seing Long Course information out in the next couple of days. We hope you will take advantage of these fun ways to stay connected with teammates and coaches. We recommend that any athletes who are planning to be a part of the upcoming swim season stay active over the off season so they are ready to go once the Spring and Summer begin!
