Winter Swim

We are so very happy to announce that we are continuing our Winter Swim Program for Highlands Swimmers for Fall 2018/Winter 2019. 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 9th) 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 9, 2018 until May 19, 2019

Participants must be Highlands members.

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

  • Sunday, December 2, 2018
