We’re excited to kick off our first Swim2Score, a new program for aquatic athletes age 5-11. Swim2Score sessions will be divided equally between high-quality stroke and swim technique, and fun water polo skills and games. They’ll begin on April 23 from 4-5 PM and will take place every Friday.
This is a great way to get your young athletes exposed to two different aquatic disciplines with some of the best coaching in Central Texas. From 4:00 to 4:30 athletes will work with Coach Hayley and others on swimming fundamentals like learning the four strokes, practicing good technique, and speed. At 4:30 they’ll jump in the small pool with Coach Sam for some directed, water polo-related skills and games.
Newcomers can register now for the program. And any family, whether currently members of the AquaTex Swim Team or not, can fill out the form below to express interest in trying Swim2Score.
We’re looking forward to having your young athletes join us for this new, fun program. Contact us if you have any other questions. More details below.
