Westminster Swimming and Diving

Fort Lauderdale Training Trip

December 18 – 22, 2008


Trip Overview:  This experience is open to any Westminster boy or girl who has an interest in being a part of the Westminster Swimming and Diving Team during the 2008-2009 season.  The trip will serve as an opportunity for the team to train twice per day in an outdoor pool, where coaching emphases will be placed on proper stroke technique, speed/strength work, aerobic conditioning, and teambuilding that will help carry us through the winter season.



Training facilities:

Pine Crest School

Fort Lauderdale, FL


This excellent facility has both long and short course pools and a separate diving well (with two 1-meter boards and a 3-meter board), as well as a weight room and dry-land training facility.  We will be practicing here twice a day here (6-8 am and 2-4 pm.)
