Introductory club training for swimmers ages 6 to 18
September 12, 2013 (El Cajon) – East County parents who have been looking for an inexpensive and fun way to involve their children in year-round club swimming now have that opportunity. Heartland Swim Association, East County's premier swim club, is offering a Fall Special Program at special introductory pricing.
Registration is $275 for swimmers between the ages of 6 to 18 and covers practices four to five days a week through December 15. There is also a $60 fee for membership in USA Swimming.
"Our Fall Special Program is designed to introduce East County families to club swimming. In addition to practices, our swimmers have the opportunity to compete in several USA Swimming sanctioned meets against athletes of similar ability," said Pat Tope, President of Heartland Swim Association. He added, "One of the highlights of the Fall Special Program is the annual travel meet to Palm Springs the weekend before Thanksgiving. It attracts hundreds of club swimmers from around Southern California and Arizona and is a great introduction to big-time swim meets."
Fall Special registrants are assigned to one of two age group teams. The Junior Gold team is for swimmers 12 and under and practices four afternoons a week at El Cajon Valley High. The Senior Development team is for swimmers 13 and over and practices five afternoons a week at Grossmont High School. Both groups focus on technique, stroke development and conditioning.
