Calling all Austin Mermaids — time to splash back in the pool Jan 31

Posted by coachlisa on January 20, 2009


A new year is underway, and after much anticipation and querying by the mermaids, Women First Swimming is set to make a splash back in the pool! Next Saturday January 31 coach Sara will be on deck to greet you with her familiar warm smile and some hot coffee to get you ready for a return to all your favorite mermaid drills and sets. From torpedoes, shark fins, and streamline rolls…all your favorites will be back for Saturday mornings…8:30 a.m!

We will introduce a 2-part program to allow Early Birds to get started now in January with a 5-week class, while the spring time crowd can begin in March with the regular 10-week program. Those who register for both parts (the full 15 weeks) get a discounted fee.

Registration is now open for any of the programs. There is limited space so sign up as soon as you can.

Program information will be updated periodically at www.womenfirst.wordpress.com. Please share with those you think might be interested in upcoming sessions. Newbie mermaids are always welcome to do a drop in session to check out the program for a drop in fee of $15.
