The Summer Season is upon us!
Are you still looking for a sport your child will fall in love with? Why not come and try the Langley Flippers Summer Swim Club! We are a competitive swim team and our motto is: fun, family, friends and self-improvement. Our season runs from May 1st through to the middle of August, and we have scheduled morning and afternoon practices and dry land training; we also have eight weekend swim meets scheduled across the Fraser Valley, from Langley to Hope!
I can hear you thinking… “That sounds like a lot”. It is and it isn’t. You and your family can commit to as much as you’re comfortable with.
Are the weekend swim meets mandatory? No. But they are encouraged. This is because swim meets provide swimmers the opportunity to experience their improvements, visual and physically, and they get to see how much stronger they have become from all their practices and dryland drills. How much parent involvement is there? Parents are expected to volunteer at swim meets, either by being a timer or recorder, a deck official or even the crash desk! And if every parent volunteered once, we would all have shorter shifts! As like all non-profit sport clubs, there wouldn’t be a club and events without the parents!!
Summer Swimming provides people of all ages an excellent source of exercise, and it’s a bonus that our club gets to run practices at an outdoor pool, being Al Anderson Memorial. After one season of being on a Summer Swim Club team, your child(ren) will return to school feeling strong, healthy, and confident, and they will have developed awesome friendships and made lasting memories and a funny bathing suit tan.
Come give Summer Swim Club a try! It’s fantastically fun, affordable and the whole family can participate.
