Winter Swim 2017-2018 is right around the corner!
The Mosby Woods Raiders will once again have the opportunity to swim at Oak Marr on Saturday nights from 7-8pm.
Fairfax County Park Authority is only able to provide the team with
four lanes. Due to the possibility of limited space, we will have to
make the signups first come first served.
This program provides
swimmers with the Mosby Woods Raiders the opportunity to maintain the skills they acquired during the
summer. Though it is meant to keep team members swimming through the winter, it
is not designed to teach mechanics as it is only a once-a-week program (there
are, however, many options in the area for those interested specifically in
working on technique: Parktakes classes, the YMCA, the Machine stroke school,
the local year-round teams, et cetera).
all swimmers, including guppies, must be able to swim across the pool
unassisted. This is a Fairfax County rule. Once we have our
registrations, I will follow up with another email to all swimmers that
are 8 and under. There are some more logistical details for our
Practices will be run by some of our talented summer coaches with the help of other older members of the swim team. They will be following a series of workouts designed by Coach Aubrey that will build over the course of the year to ensure that swimmers will continue to be challenged.
The program will run from September 23rd, 2017 through May 19, 2018. Currently, we anticipate that there will be practice on all Saturdays EXCEPT the following: 10/7, 11/4, 11/18, 11/25, 12/9, 12/23, 12/30, 1/13, 1/27, 2/3, 2/17, 3/24, 3/31 and 4/14.

$475 for 3 or more children (same family/residence)
