2020 Summer swim fun with Matt & Mary Kate

AVAILABLE FOR SWIM CLUB MEMBERS ONLY!

Join Hidden Hollow's swim team Head Coach Matt Hoke and Coach Mary Kate Boylan this summer for mornings of fun and swimming in compliance with CDC guidelines for safety!

Scheduled to begin July 6th - July 31st (with possible extension if interest remains) 

Practices  are scheduled 9:00 am to 11:00am Monday-Friday

Coaches will design the programming uniquely to best suit the ages, group sizes, and skill levels of the groups. Programming will follow CDC guidelines and like most things, will be subject to change and adaptation as the regulations change. The program is being designed to facilitate small groups while maintaining appropriate social distancing.

Children will be separated in to small groups to work with coaches on programming specifically designed to best suit the ages, group sizes, and skill levels of the group. We will provide organized games and "team" building activities both in the pool and dry land!  Activities will take place in small groups and will be designed to cultivate swim skills such as strokes, starts/ turns, endurance, team work and, of course, having fun!

Time slots for ages will be as follows:

Times and programming are subject to change based on registration interest. Maximum 30 swimmers/session = 10 per group. We have the ability to accommodate up to 90 kids per day

Participants are encouraged to bring their own equipment (goggles, caps, kick-boards)
Groups will rotate through activities/games/swimming within the allocated time to ensure appropriate ratios - movement will be supervised by coaches in order to make sure that CDC guidelines are followed. 

Coaches will design the programming uniquely to best suit the ages, group sizes, and skill levels of the groups.
Times and programming are subject to change as we learn how to best utilize the times and the social distancing.

** Registration for swimming makes you eligible for Diving program!
