The Overlee Winter Swim Program began in 1964. The program provides “once-a-week” competitive stroke development for swimmers for the Overlee community.
The program offers a positive teaching environment that encourages learning and provides opportunities for the best technique instruction possible. The eight-month skill development and improvement focus allows the summer league swimmers to perform at peak potential and prepares youngsters for the swim team environment. In fact, 90% of winter swim participants also compete in the summer league.
The Winter Swim Program develops skills and coaches speed improvement through clinic swim workouts. The sessions range from developmental swim school, as well as age group workouts focusing on competitive stroke technique. The competitive technique session is designed for experienced competitive swimmers wishing to augment their Winter USS league practices. On average, 200 children—the majority in the 8- to-14 age range—attend the Winter Program each year.
Program Dates, Times and Session Specifics
We will be offering two separate swim sessions of Basic Stroke Instruction designed to teach swimmers all four swim stokes: freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly. Both are held at Yorktown High School Pool. Cost for Basic Stroke Instruction is: $325.00
Session 1: 6:00 – 6:45 pm
Session 2: 7:00 – 8:00 pm.
Swimmers must be comfortable in the water, able to submerge and blow bubbles, and swim the width of the tank pool.
Swimmers must be at least 5 years old by October 1st 2017 to participate in these sessions. Swimmers who turn 5 years old during the Winter Swim season may request permission to join the group after their 5th birthday.
NEW WINTER SWIM and NEW 2017 OVL SWIM TEAM swimmers should register for the 6:00 pm session.
A third session on Technique will be held from 7:00 to 8:00 pm. This session is for OVL SWIM TEAM swimmers ages 10 and over ONLY! (And no longer by invitation only.) It is designed to provide advanced technique training and conditioning for competitive swimmers. Coach Brenna will be leading this stroke technique session. There is limited space in this hour and there is only room for 35 swimmers. Please keep in mind this session does not substitute for a United States Swimming winter swim team. Rather, this technique session augments USS training with intensive technique training.
Session 3 is for OVERLEE MEMBERS ONLY: Returning SWIM TEAM swimmers should register for the technique 7:00 pm session. Cost for Session 3 is $320.00.
