Winter Swim
We are so very happy to announce that we are continuing our Winter Swim Program for Highlands Swimmers for Fall 2019/Winter 2020. The program will allow swimmers to focus on technique, learn new skills, build team spirit, and allow for those swimmers who participate in multiple sports to stay active and in the water year round. It will be run by your Highlands Coaches at the Tyson’s YWCA (8101 Wolftrap Road, Dunn Loring, VA) on Sunday evenings from 5:00pm to 6:00pm.

The minimum age for the program is 5 years of age (by September 15th) and the child must be able to swim 25 yards in both freestyle and backstroke.  The program is not intended to be “learn-to-swim lessons,” but will be competitive swim training. 

The cost of the program will be $550 for the full winter program (September- May), plus a credit card processing fee of 2.95% and $0.30 per registration fee. The program will run from September 15, 2019 until May 17, 2020

Participants must be Highlands members.

There will be a few NO swim Sundays including but not limited to:

  • Sunday, December 1, 2019
  • Sunday, December 22, 2019
  • Sunday, December 29, 2019
  • Sunday, January 19, 2020
  • Sunday, April 12, 2020

Please note that if there are any additional NO swim dates we will email them out to all participating families in advance. Additional practice cancellations have already been calculated into the cost of the program.

Registration is non-refundable.
