New winter swim program launched in Killington

Killington Parks & Recreation has launched a new Winter Swim Program beginning Monday, October 29. The grassroots swim program has been established in Killington to help young athletes dive back into the water to stay fit and fine tune their strokes during the winter months.

In hopes to establish a USA Swimming Club open to all swimmers in the Killington region, athletes will be coached by a USA Swimming certified coach and an assistant coach.

The program will be comprised of two groups - one for ages 7-18 and one for ages 5-6, with practice being held for 14 weeks, from Oct. 29 through Feb. 27. There will be no practices held on holiday weeks (Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years and President's Day). All practices will be held at the Pico Pool at the Pico Sports Club on Route 4 in Killington.

For ages 7-18, there will be practices held on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays and participants have the flexibility to swim one, two, or three of the days. On Mondays, practices will be held from 4-5 p.m. and on Tuesdays and Wednesdays practices will be held from 3:30-5 p.m. For ages 5-6, there will be practice held on Mondays from 3:20-4 p.m. Registration for this winter officially closed Oct. 24 for this coming season.
