2020 Summer Swimming Programs

This summer, Occoquan Swimming is providing opportunities for swimming to Prince William County youth.  With three pools in operation (possibly more later) we have options for every level of swimmer to gain swimming skills, enhance fitness and prepare for future swimming success.

Programs are overseen by USA Swimming certified swimming coaches and assisted with amazing current and former competitive swimmers and certified swim instructors from within OCCS.  The curriculum starts with basic swimming skills with an emphasis on safety and progresses into learning and enhancing the competitive swimming strokes.  If you are looking for a path toward competitive swimming, this is the best format to helping your child set a foundation of skills, fitness and love of swimming!

All programs are offered week to week to adapt to your summer travel and other things. You can sign up for the entire summer and come and go as you wish or just choose your weeks to swim with us.  There is also an option for Saturday only swims at Lake Ridge and Central Park Aquatic Center.

Learn To Swim programs are 25 minutes each and are limited to three students. 

The cost is $64/week (or $64/month for Saturday only programs)

Swim Team Ready programs are 45 minutes each and may have up to 20 swimmers in each practice.  The cost is $50/ week.

 

Fridays are offered as a make up day due to weather (at outdoor pools)
