Your Exeter Eagle swim board is thrilled to introduce Alec Heiskanen as our Head Coach for the 2022 swim season! Coach Alec is a freshman at Oklahoma State University, studying Aerospace Administration & Operations, and plans to be a commercial airline pilot. Coach Alec is a Loudoun County native and was a competitive swimmer for years in Northern Virginia. He brings a wealth of experience, having swum in our league for Stratford, Broadlands, and Willowsford. He also swam year-round for SNOW Swimming. In high school, Coach Alec was the captain at Briar Woods and was a Virginia state finalist in sprint freestyle, finishing 5th in the state in the 50 free event. He comes to us with coaching experience, too! Alec was an assistant coach with the Willowsford Waves and with Bateman Aquatics. Coach Alec's extensive background in swimming, his deep understanding of the sport, and his passion for and experience with coaching makes him a perfect fit for the Exeter Eagles. We are excited to welcome Alec as our coach this year and look forward to another great season!

OUR STORY

The Eagles at Exeter, at 350 Plaza St. NE in Leesburg, VA began in 1996 and boasts the home of the largest pool in the neighborhood. Each summer our veteran swimmers reunite to share their experiences over the long school year and welcome new faces who become fast friends. When their schedules permit, parents enjoy lounging around the deck to catch up with their friends, too. Our relaxed atmosphere is warm on the coolest of early summer mornings and welcomes families from our Exeter neighborhood and beyond. We range in size from 70 to 110 swimmers, with a maximum of 120. We offer among the lowest registration fees in the league, covering the team t-shirt and swim cap (for the first 70 registrants), the coaches’ salaries, league insurance, and end-of-season awards and banquet expenses. We keep our fees low by requiring all families to serve in crucial positions during at least three swim meets rather than pay additional fees.

SEASON EXPECTATIONS

Practice sessions last one hour, five times a week after school begins. The eight swim meets are held on Wednesday evenings or Saturday morning; four are usually at our home pool and four are usually at pools located roughly 30 minutes away. Each meet lasts between about 3.5 and 4.5 hours, depending on many factors including team size. As swim meets are run 100% by volunteers, we ask for a 20-hour commitment throughout the season; families who do not volunteer are not permitted to participate in meets.
