August Training Sessions

Clinic/Conditioning: Dryland and Water Sessions - August/Early September 2016


Beginning on Tuesday, September 6, only evening sessions will be conducted due to the start of classes.
The start time of each session will also be adjusted with a new start time - 6:00-7:30 p.m. Monday-Thursday


Harrisburg area swimmers are invited to attend open training sessions for the month of August/early September at the Wedgewood Hills Swim Club. Conditioning and stroke improvement will be a part of each session. Dryland sessions will also included based on swimmer participation (age and ability).

The August/early September sessions will run through at least the first week in September. If weather and pool temperatures permit, swimming sessions will continue for a second and possibly a third week in September. As the weather becomes cool, more time may be devoted to dryland exercises and less time will be spent in the water. Any additional change to the schedule will be announced during the training sessions and published on the Collegiate Aquatics web site.
