Striper Swimming  

Individual focus on improving stroke technique is part of the story.  Specific and measurable goals with progress charted are more of the story. Challenges which include swim meet preparation and readiness are encouraged, but optional. Parties and social times.  Mutual support. Yes indeed!

If your goals do not include competition, Masters will still address your personal needs, and help improve your swimming in an enjoyable team environment. Gains in aerobic fitness, flexibility and strength are a sure thing.

The team is organized within United States Masters Swimming Association, and as part of the Virginia state local association. Its members have participated competitively at several levels and receive the benefits of their umbrella affiliations, which include YMCA Aquatics. Stripers in seven national meets, numerous regional meets and triathlons have consistently placed well. 

Season 2014-15 begins September 9.  For more information contact Northern Neck Family YMCA at 804-435-0223.

Dick Scott at the VMST Fall Meet in Virginia Beach.  Dick researched, put together, and coordinated relays resulting in three new state records by Striper swimmers.  Many thanks!
