Winter Swim

Dear Parents and Swimmers –

Based on the feedback we received on our winter swim survey, the Swim Team Booster Board is delighted to introduce a Winter Swim Program for HPP swimmers. HPP is partnering with Coach Phil Caslavka, Head Coach of The Swim Farm and the Donaldson Run Swim Team - a NVSL Division 4 team. This is a stroke development/technique program for ages 6-18.Swimmers will have the opportunity to swim 1 or 2 days a week. Each lane will have an individual coach assigned to run that lane and provide individual technical instruction.

The Swim Farm website is

Coach Phil has a very flexible program.  HPP specific practice is on Sunday evenings at the Renaissance Condo Community in Falls Church. The Swim Farm affords families the opportunity to purchase either swimmer specific season long (October-May) passes or packages that can be shared among family members (i.e. a 20 practice package that can be shared among swimmers in a family). Families choose which practices to attend on a weekly basis and sign up through Google Sign-up. Therefore, you do not pay for practices your swimmer cannot attend.

In total, Coach Phil has 4 practice sessions to choose from, however, the Sunday evening practice will be dedicated specifically to HPP.

Please contact Julie Felgar or Coach Phil ( with questions.

Please note, the practices at Renaissance are NOT Learn to Swim programs. Your child must be a B or A meet swimmer to participate and be able to swim 25+ yards of two strokes legally. If you have a question about your child specifically, please speak to the Team Reps to determine their eligibility.

Available Practice Sessions:

- Sunday night 6:30-8 (until Jan) / 7-8:30 (after Jan) @ Renaissance - HPP Specific Practice — Renaissance Pool is behind Marshall High School on Route 7.

- Thursday night 8-9:30 pm @ Renaissance

- Saturday night 7-8{30 pm @ Yorktown High School

- Sunday morning 7:30-9 am @ Yorktown High School

The Board would love to keep our swimmers unified and practicing throughout the winter. We will most definitely move up one or two divisions next year. We have worked hard to find the most flexible option with a highly qualified Coach to enable this program, based on your survey feedback and requests over a number of years. Please take advantage of the opportunity. We look forward to seeing as many swimmers as possible on the deck this fall, winter and spring!

A great big thank you to all of our swimmers, coaches and volunteers for making the 1 st HiPPo Swim-a-thon a huge success. A lot of fun was had by all for a very good cause while giving everyone an opportunity to give back.

as of Thursday evening we have approximately $7,500 in pledges.

We also want to thank Jamie Lindly, Captain, USN, father of Jack and Abby, and Mike Buriss, LT, USN (Retired), father of Adam and Ryan, for kicking off the event with words that helped connect our swimmers to the organization for which they were swimming.
