It's a new year and Summer is slowly trudging its way through the snow and cold weather just waiting to rear its head from around the corner.
We know that schedules are busy. (Really, we do). BUT we also know that it's important to many of our swimmers to spend some time in the pool - even during the off season. Now, you may not want to commit to a big year-round program, like NCAP or OCCS, or even a smaller program, like Riptide or Swim Kids/Stealth. (By the way, all four programs are sponsors, so we like them). Sometimes the times don't line up or the commitment is too intense or the price is too high. We understand.
That's why we have the BWaves OffSeason swim program. And this year, there are options.
BASIC ($150): One practice a week Sundays, 5:00pm - 6:00pm (16 practices) No Swim: 4/5 or 4/12. Off-Season Swim will convene on Sundays, 5:00-6:00pm @ CPAC, beginning on January 19th. Session Two (Fall/Winter) will run through May 17th with no-swim dates on April 5th and 12th (Spring Break) for a total of 16 practices.
Pre-requisites include: participation on a swim team (Guppies included), ability to swim at least 10 meters independently (any stroke or fashion), and willingness to stay focused and follow directions.
Participation in the BASIC Off-Season Swim program for all 16 Sundays is: $150.00. Checks should be made payable to “Bridlewaves Swim Team”; cash (in US denominations only) should be handed over calmly. This fee is non-refundable.
BASIC PLUS ($250): “Basic” practices on Sundays plus one practice a week 5:00pm - 5:45pm with OCCS Swim Academy during February and March. Thanks to our partnership with Occoquan Swimming and OCCS Swim Academy, we are pleased to offer an option for extra practices throughout the session. If you would like some extra pool time for your swimmer and a chance for them to get legal in all four strokes so they are 100% prepared for the 2020 Summer Swim season, have we got an opportunity for you. During the months of February and March, you can add an extra practice, which will be run by the OCCS Swim Academy staff. These practices are offered on Monday through Thursday afternoons from 5:00-5:45pm at CPAC. With this option, you will be able to pick one afternoon a week and get that extra attention and training for your swimmer.
You can join the BASIC program at any time during the session, but the deadline to add the BASIC PLUS practice is Friday, January 31st because we need to get everything ready to start the first week of October.
Each swimmer will need to have a Registration Form and a Medical Form on file to participate (one per family is fine). Please print out the following forms and turn them in with your payment at your first practice session.
*NOTE: If you participated in session one and already completed the Medical Form, you do not need to fill out a new one - just remind us that we already have one on file.
Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know if you plan to have swimmers in the program (or if you have any questions) so we can be sure to have enough coaches.
AND, AS ALWAYS...
Reach out to all your friends and tell them to sign up, too!
