Dear Brookfield Breakers,
Thanks for a great summer swim season! We hope you are enjoying these last weeks of summer vacation. It is hard to believe that it is already time to register for the 2017-2018 Breaker Winter Swim season. Winter swim will begin on Sunday, September 24, 2017 and will end on Sunday, May 20, 2018.
Each year swim teams are entered into a lottery system for winter swim to determine times, location and number of lanes. This year, Brookfield was given 3 lanes to use for our Winter Swim program. Space will be limited to 30 swimmers so that we can make sure we give each swimmer individual attention. The program is for those age at least 6 to 14 that can swim repeated 25y laps. Swimmers must be 6 by September 24, 2017. The program will focus on stroke mechanics and stroke refinement and will include work on starts, flip turns and finishes.
We are pleased to announce that we have 3 experienced, knowledgeable swimmers from our Breaker team to coach our Winter Program. Kevin He/Head Coach, Benjamin Condemi and Caroline Clark.
Please remember this is not swimming lessons. Each child must be able to swim freestyle across the pool unassisted without a coach in the water. If your child is not able to swim unassisted we will be more than happy to refer you to our coaches for private lessons and/or other places for swimming instruction. Please note when deciding to sign your child up, this is an hour long practice and the pool at Cub Run is much deeper than Brookfield and therefore may be intimidating and tiring for some children.
The Breakers will be swimming at Cub Run Recreation Center on Sundays from 7:00 to 8:00pm. We will NOT swim on the following dates:
November: 12, 26 (Cub Run closure, Thanksgiving Break)
December: 24, 31 (Winter Break)
January: 28 (FCPS 4 day break)
March: 25 (Spring Break)
April: 1 (Spring Break)
May: 13 (Mother's Day)
The fee will be $185 for each swimmer.
Once payment is received, your registration will be complete. If you have any questions during the year, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you and we’ll see you at the pool!
