Winter Program 

The RSTA Winter Swim program offers swimmers the opportunity to continue their swim development during the colder months (September through May). The program is hosted at the Reston Community Center. Coaches work with swimmers to improve their stroke technique and endurance. The program is broken into three sessions: Fall (September - December), Winter (January - March), and Spring (March - May).

Within each session, there are classes aimed at different age/skill groups.

Sunday 5-6pm Class (Ages 6-18)

This program focuses on developing proper stroke technique. In the 25 meter pool, swimmers can learn and practice the four competitive strokes. All coaches work on deck and in the water with the swimmers to improve their technique. This is not a basic swim instruction class and instead is intended to help swimmers learn to improve competitive legal strokes. Swimmers must be at least 6 years old by the start of the session and must be able to swim 25 meters comfortably without stopping and demonstrate the use of two different competetive strokes.
