2019 Pre-Season Swimmer Assessments
The Swim Team 2019 pre-season swimmer assessments will be conducted at Spring Hill Rec Center (1239 Spring Hill Road, McLean, Virginia 22102) on Sunday March 24th (3:00-4:00 pm) and Saturday April 6th (3:15 – 5:15 pm), for all new swimmers 10 years old and younger, and any Little Jaws who want to be considered for advancement to the lower pool. A sign up link with five-minute time slots will be sent out on March 1st. (Please note: This is different than last year. If your child was in Little Jaws last summer, and you think he or she should remain in that program this season, you do not need an assessment. Please just register for the Little Jaws program when registration opens on March 1st.)
Our Developmental Program is the future of Chesterbrook and our goal is to make your child’s experience fun and rewarding while providing top-notch instruction. While we want as many children in our program as possible, it is also important to ensure the safety of our swimmers.
