PRESS RELEASE DATED APRIL 4, 2021:
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 starting on April 13. 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.
