Our very own YMCA has a swim team - the Alexandria Y Sea Dragons. It's relatively new, and grew out of their stroke clinic program. It's a wonderful way for kids to get exercise, meet new friends and participate in a sport that allows parents to only have to attend ONE meet since it's co-ed and multiple age groups! This Sunday, 9 September, from 4pm - 6pm, will be the official kick-off of the Sea Dragons 2012-2013 season at the YMCA at 420 Monroe Avenue. Coaches will assess kids' swimming ability and there be a short social meeting/Q&A/meet and greet for parents following the assessment from 6:00 pm - 6:30 pm. The Sea Dragon 2012 - 2013 season's weekly practices are as follows: Monday 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm Tuesday 4:30 pm - 6:45 pm Wednesday 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm Thursday 4:30 pm - 6:45 pm Saturday 8 am to 9 am Sunday [TBD] Depending on level, children attend 1-3 practices of their choice per week. It's a very supportive environment and all are welcome! Go Sea Dragons!
