DC WAVE IRON ATHLETE CHALLENGE
The iron athlete challenge was created as a way to introduce our swimmers to the many different distances and events that exist in competitive swimming. Our program seeks to develop swimmers in all four strokes, sprint, middle distance, and distance events, so as to give each athlete a balanced competitive swimming foundation to build upon at the high school or collegiate level of the sport.
