H2O Go! is designed to “feel” like a swim team...without the pressure of a long term commitment, special uniforms or meets.

It’s just fun sessions working hard on competitive strokes with great coaches! This is an economical program that offers lots of distance swimming. Workouts focus on the starts, turns, finishes, freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke & butterfly that swim teams require. Because this program is designed to improve your child’s strokes, new participants MUST be confident in the deep water.

Flexibility!
• You can sign up to attend once OR twice a week.
• You can register for just one session, or choose to attend throughout the entire year. (See Seasonal Calendar)

Coach Jo Curry and her coaching team will be taking this program to a new level, working on stroke details and trying to shave seconds off swim times. They will focus on the fundamentals... but also bring FUN to the swim lane.

PREREQUISITE:
• 50 yards of comfortable “side” breathing Freestyle.
• 50 yards skilled Backstroke without stopping.

TRYOUTS:
Tryouts for first time H2O Go! can be scheduled by contacting thecolonypenguins@gmail.com

Coach Joyce (Jo) Curry

leads the H2O Go! coaching staff and plans to focus on instructing stroke basics for beginners and technique efficiency to advanced swimmers. For most of her life, Jo has either trained in the pool or coached swimming – highly influenced by her mother Kathi Rayborn who served as head coach of Aqua Racers for 16 years.

From the age of four through her high school years, Jo competed with various recreational and USA swim clubs in California and Texas. During her collegiate years at SFASU, Jo lettered in volleyball with the Ladyjacks, but she never strayed too far from the pool. 

For nine years, Jo instructed swimmers at Lifetime Fitness and coached the summer Aqua Racers. She has headed H2O Go! for the past several years. With a doctorate degree in nutrition and exercise physiology, Jo can explain how to restore that muscle glycogen for improved endurance in the pool. But she warns that you should be ready to take notes!

IMPORTANT NOTICE!

T.A.A.F. eligibility rules are listed at the bottom of this page.  If your swimmer intends to compete in a summer T.A.A.F. League, please read that notice

Sure your child can swim laps, but are his strokes effective? Does he “muscle” his way down the lanes, lacking the finesse to become a total athlete? Does he wear out quickly, losing the finer points of his stroke… and ultimately adding seconds to his race?

Hydro-Fast is a swim clinic designed to take the solid basics your swimmer already brings to the pool and refine his details into a stronger, healthier and value added practice. This is not a swim team and the emphasis in not on distance. Students are expected to attend three sessions per week for the most effective progression through the course.

Smaller class… bigger focus on details: This program will put your swimmer in a better position, whether he just wants to tune up before joining a seasonal swim club, or wants a detailed review to prepare for major competition. This clinic is for the person who wants to take what they love (swimming) and add techniques that will reward them on a sporting level. Class size is limited to 9 students to ensure best coach/swimmer ratio.

TRYOUTS:
If you are new to this program and have never been on a team please contact Coachangela@yahoo.com
