Winter Swim

The Winter Swim 2017 Program runs from January 7 to May 20, 2017.  The 17 sessions will take place at South Run Pool.  Each session is one hour, from 7 pm to 8 pm.  We will NOT meet on MLK weekend, Jan 21, and  the two Sundays of Spring Break—April 8 and 15. Swimmers should arrive at the facility with enough time to change into their suits and be ready to enter the water at 7 pm.  We will have 3 designated lanes.  The fee for the 17 week program is $125 per swimmer.  Please remit payment at the time you enroll your swimmer(s).  Checks should be made payable to KRST, and sent to Kris Bondanella, 10166 Wavell Rd, Fairfax, VA 22032.  Winter swim has, historically filled to capacity prior to the start of the program.  A space will be reserved for your swimmer when payment is received.

The goals of the Winter Swim Program are to help swimmers learn or improve their strokes, turns, and starts.  Through drill, practice, and weekly training, swimmers will build endurance for the upcoming summer season.  Throughout the Winter Swim sessions our goal is to emphasize good sportsmanship, build team spirit, and instill a love of the sport.

Here are some guidelines from FCPA that we must adhere to when using Wakefield Pool:

1. Swimmers are to check in at the front desk no more than 15 minutes prior to the scheduled swimming time.  The front desk will have a roster of swimmers from Kings Ridge.
2. A parent is to be located in both the men’s and women’s locker rooms to supervise swimmers while in these areas.  This is for your swimmer’s safety.  Please escort them to and from these areas and assist other parents who may request that you help their child in the gender specific locker room.
3. Swimmers are NOT to enter the water without the supervision of the coach, and then, only in the assigned space at the assigned time.
4. It is permissible and encouraged to have a volunteer parent in the middle of the lane where very young swimmers may need assistance or reassurance.  (We have a good number of very young swimmers this winter.  A Coach may ask you to help out if needed.)
5. SNOW POLICY—In the event the pool closes due to snow or inclement weather, announcements will be made on the 24 hour information line at 703-324-8661.
6. At the conclusion of each session, swimmers must clear the pool, deck, and locker room areas in a timely manner.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if, at any time, you have a question or concern about the Winter Swim program.  You can reach me by phone or by email.  Again, please remit payment to KRST at time of enrollment.

Thank you,
