Our Beginners’ Swim Clinics (USMS Adult Learn-to-Swim Program) & USMS Fitness Series Fundraisers:
We are excited to announce that, in April, we were awarded a grant from U.S. Masters Swimming & USA Swimming Foundation to fund Adult Learn-to-Swim lessons! We plan to offer free Adult Learn-to-Swim lessons, our beginner’s swimming clinics, later this year. If you do not know how to swim, this program is for you! Check this page frequently for updates. We encourage our members and the greater aquatics community to support the USMS Adult Learn-to-Swim grant program through the USMS & Swim.com Fitness Series Fundraisers. We participated in the USMS & Swim.com Summer Fitness Challenge (ran June 1-15) and we will also participate in the USMS & Swim.com Fall Fitness Challenge (registration now open & challenge runs October 1-15). If you are interested in volunteering to support our Adult Learn-to-Swim program this year, please reach out to us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Our Intermediate Swim Clinics (Low Pressure Zone):
We are proud to announce the return to our schedule of Low Pressure Zone (LPZ) workouts (intermediate swim clinics) at Sacred Heart. Early last year before COVID lockdown, we applied for a grant for Heritage of Pride (NYC Pride) to fund this program. We are honored that Heritage of Pride awarded funding to bring this workout to intermediate swimmers, with an emphasis on those who have historically been excluded from pool access, including communities of color. We had to wait for over a year to launch the program due to COVID, but it was worth the wait. This workout is designed for intermediate swimmers with basic skills (floating, treading water, rhythmic breathing, freestyle, etc.) to learn new technique with the goal to be able to join a masters level workout. For more information, visit our LPZ information page here.
