Marlins of Raleigh Winter Swim League

The 5th Annual MOR Winter Swim League (WSL) kicks off at Millbrook Pool and the St. Mary's School pool the week of January 9, 2012.  The 11-week swim clinic program offers great environments for participants to learn both entry-level and intermediate swimming stroke techniques.  Our coaches instruct using in-water and on deck coaching and highlight the specific details needed for developing proper kicking, body positioning and arm stroking for each of the competitive swim strokes.  The Swim League also offers instruction on starts and turns.  The WSL is traditionally one of the strongest area programs for developing summer league swimmers.  The cost of the 22-class program is $200 per participant and information is available now on the Marlins of Raleigh website -- http://www.marlinsofraleigh.com/.  The deadline for registration is December 20, 2012 and the program does usually fill by early December.  If you have any questions about the program, please call Darryl Buda or Jonathan Watson at the MOR office - (919) 851-3000.
