Interested in Winter Swimming??
Winter swimming is an excellent way to improve your technique and endurance while having fun and making new friends. The summer season is very brief, so the extra practice in the winter can make a big difference. Typically, the winter season runs from September until February, though longer for those who do USA swimming and/or spring clinics. Meets are usually just once or twice a month, and many teams offer flexible practice options - as many as 5 days a week or as little as 2 in some cases.
Many swimmers who swim year-round improve significantly as a result.
