The Brookfield Swim Team conducts swim assessments for all new team members prior to the start of the summer swim season. There are many swimmers in the pool at one time and safety is our ultimate goal. The assessment will evaluate swimming ability, pool safety, and ability to follow coach instructions. If it is determined that a swimmer is deficient in one of these areas, a reassessment is possible at the coach's discretion.
The Brookfield Breakers compete in the competitive Northern Virginia Swimming League (NVSL) each Saturday morning. In addition, the Brookfield Breakers swim against other Western Fairfax Division League (WFDL) swimming pools during our Monday night developmental meets. All Brookfield Breakers are encouraged to swim in the Monday night developmental meets. Participation at the swim meets requires that a swimmer must be able to swim unassisted the full 25m length of the pool. Swim team practices will focus on conditioning exercises, in and out of the water, as well as strengthening swimming techniques. Daily practice times are separated based on age and begin Memorial Day weekend.
