Evaluations are at One Loudoun
Evaluations are at Claude Moore
PM Evaluations are at Dulles South
I am looking forward to you signing up for Evaluations for the
2021-2022 season with SNOW. A few things I want you to be aware of.
1. The evaluations will be held at the One Loudoun outdoor pool.
The name of that pool is The Club at One Loudoun. The address is
44605 Russel Branch Parkway, Ashburn VA 20147.
2. When you come into the parking lot you can park on the right
side of the building (facing the building from the street).
We do not use the inside of the main building so please
don't try to come inside the building.
3. The pool is behind the building and you will be able to see it
from the parking lot. You will see a staircase off of the parking
lot leading down to the pool. We will be entering through the
outdoor gate at the bottom of that staircase to get onto the pool
4. Again, please don't knock on the doors to the building,
I am not inside and won't know you are there. Down the stairs and
to the outdoor gate is how we will enter the pool deck.
5. Please arrive 5-10 minutes before your scheduled evaluation time
so I can let you in and you can get ready. I am scheduling 15
minutes intervals for evaluations, so please be patient and
courteous of other families and I will do my best to stay on the
6. If you have more than one child you wish to sign up please
either sign them up for the same time slot if they are of roughly
equal age/ability, or different time slots if that isn't the case.
7. As the summer goes on I will add additional time slots as needed
for these evaluations. If everything is full please be patient as I
will likely be adding more slots soon.
8. If you have any questions about anything feel free to email me

swimmer need to be evaluated?
All swimmers new to SNOW are required to go through evaluations to
ensure they are ready for our program. This includes those
interested in our Stroke Clinic, Summer League Prep, and Home
How long are
We will run evaluations in groups of 1-5 swimmers. The swimming
portion typically runs about 15-20 minutes, depending on the
athletes' ability. Wait time to be evaluated may vary, depending on
how many people are present. Please expect to be at the pool for at
least 30 minutes. This includes time after the swim portion, so we
can speak to families about swimmer group placement and program
What will my swimmer
be asked to do?
will need to be comfortable training in pool depths more than
10 feet, as both our Claude Moore and Ida Lee programs train in the
deep end of the pool.
Swimmers will be asked
to complete several pool lengths the following:
- Freestyle (must be
- Backstroke (must be
- Breaststroke (must be
- Butterfly (must be

without a kickboard)
When will I find out
which program is best for my swimmer?
We will let you know immediately after the evaluation, and can also
answer your questions about the program then.
What if my swimmer
has competed previously with a USA Swimming team? Will they still
need to be evaluated?
Potentially. Please reach out to Ross Hawks ([email protected])
with the following information:
