Tuckahoe Aquatics is pleased to offer its winter swim program beginning November 3, 2016 and running through May 21, 2017.  This program is for members and non-members interested in weekly swim instruction (stroke work, starts and turns, improving speed/efficiency, and conditioning).  Practices will be geared toward children who may participate in another sport and/or do not want to commit to a year-round swimming program.  The program will help all swimmers prepare for next year’s summer swim season as well as help improve their strokes.

 

Chris McPhaul is returning for his 10th consecutive year to direct the program.  Chris swam and helped coach at Tuckahoe (1973-1984), and was a lifeguard and water safety instructor both at TRC and Auburn University.  He coached Sea Devils Swimming and has also coached soccer and baseball.  He is currently active in the Montgomery County Swim League, where he officiates and cheers for his children.  The winter program coaching staff will also include accomplished former and current Tuckahoe senior swimmers.

 

The program will take place on Sunday evenings (6–6:45 pm for 8 and under swimmers and 6:45–7:45 pm for 9 and older swimmers) and Thursdays (6:15–7:00 pm for 8 and under swimmers). The program may encourage some swimmers to age up or down for sessions based on ability.

 

BACK IN 2017: SPRINT CLINIC! For a second year Tuckahoe Aquatics will offer this clinic on Thursday evenings from 7:00–8:00 p.m. for experienced competitive swimmers.  The clinic is for TRC members only and focuses on racing skills and improving speed. The program is intended for swimmers that will contend for summer Saturday meets, swimmers who swim as a second sport, and year-round USA swimmers who want to supplement their winter training with a weekly speed session.

 

Space is limited and registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.  The cost is $300 (TRC member) per child per session and $375 (TRC non-member) with discounts for multiple family members.  There is an additional $150 fee for children who want to swim on Thursday AND Sunday.
