These two 16-class sessions are off-season opportunities for swimmers to have the Swordfish coaching staff help them work on conditioning, swim stroke techniques, flip turns, and race strategies in preparations for the 2017 summer season or as a great way to stay active and healthy during the winter and spring. The registration fee ($110/$85 JCC member) is for each session, not for each day. Times are 3:45pm-4:30pm on Mondays and Wednesdays (Session 1, Winter: 12/05/2016 – 2/01/2017; Session 2, Spring: 2/13/2017 – 4/05/2017, no workouts) in the JCC indoor lap pool. Participants do NOT have to be a Swordfish Swim Team member in order to participate, but experienced swimmers (ages 5-18) are required. This is NOT swim lessons for non-swimmers. The swim team staff will make all judgment calls regarding a swimmer’s ability to participate. There will be no workouts on December 26, 2016, or January 2, 2017.
