It always seems like the summer swim season goes by so fast. For those who just can’t wait to get back in the pool and are interested in additional training and competition opportunities, there are a number of great club swim teams in the Frederick area. Each club has their differences, but they offer swimmers a chance to continue with the sport in the fall, winter and early spring. One of them (FAST) even has some of their practices at Middletown High School. The 3 Frederick area club teams are:
- Frederick Area Swim Team (FAST) – www.frederickarea swimteam.org
- Monocacy Aquatic club (MAC) - www.macswim.net
- YMCA of Frederick – http://frederickymca.org/programs/swimming-and-aquatics
The Fox Swim Team has facilities that are a little farther, but there are some swimmers in the area that also train with them - www.foxswimming.com.
Some clubs also offer some very inexpensive pre-summer stroke clinics for a few weeks in the early spring. We will pass on this information when it becomes available.
Enjoy your offseason. We look forward to seeing everyone again next summer.
