Spring Into Swimming

Start off that spring swim training right!

The Triathlon Team has obtained use of the Woodlands Pool in Brewster for FOUR DAYS each week for 8 weeks starting Monday, April 4. AND…for the first time this will be a “drop-in” program: that is, you won’t have to sign up for all 8 weeks…you can come as is convenient!

Here are the times each week:
MONDAYS – 5:00pm-6:00pm, all skill levels welcome, technique-focused
WEDNESDAYS – 5:00pm-6:00pm, all skill levels welcome, workout-focused
FRIDAYS – 5:00pm-6:00pm, novice-to-intermediate swimmers who need some tips
SATURDAYS – 12noon-1:30pm, intermediate-to-advanced swimmers (hammerfest)

Coaches will be Justin Torrellas with occasional guest appearances by Pam Rogers and Craig Lewin. All three possess stellar credentials and have received rave reviews from our athletes.

These workouts are mostly intended to build your fitness for the season. If you don’t want any help, the coaches will leave you alone, but if you want assistance they will look for sinking hips, crossovers, poor rotation etc., and offer suggestions for correction. There will be some video analysis and at least one session will consist of banging around buoys (always a crowd-pleaser).

Here’s how the fees break down:
– drop-in charge for the Mon, Wed and Fri sessions (60 minutes) will be $20. However, you can buy a ticket book for 5+ sessions for $15 per session
– drop-in charge for the Saturday session (note: 90 minutes in duration) will be $25. Buy a ticket book of 5 or more sessions for $20 per session

You can swim as often, or infrequently, as you wish…once in a while, or several times a week. However general instructions, weekly updates and notifications will NOT be sent to the entire club. If you wish to be on the email list you need to contact Andy Scherding at ascherding@me.com. (For planning purposes it would be wonderful if you mentioned how often or which days you “think” you’ll be able to attend.) Andy will be sending detailed instructions to this “swim list” on Sundays.

In order to keep our lawyers satisfied, you must be a club member to participate! [Become A Member]

AND…don’t forget that our teammate Trish Cundiff has just launched weekly masters swims at the pool at Sandwich High, Sundays 3:30-4:30pm. Another great opportunity for all of us. Contact Trish attrishdish5@comcast.net
