Time to Register for Winter classes

Posted by coachlisa on November 26, 2009

Happy Thanksgiving!  

It’s time to dive in again and start swimming for the winter season of the Women First Swimming program, coached once again by Sara Robertson at Balcones Neighborhood Pool (with Heated pool with full showers and change rooms available).

While we took a break for the summer and fall, the program is will enter its 9th year in 2010!

2009-2010 classes NOW OPEN for registration  

Class Dates: 10-weeks starting Dec 12, Dec 19, then off two weeks for Christmas and New Years, then 8 classes starting Jan 9 through Feb 27.  

Time: 8:30-9:30 am

Class options and Costs

  •  $125 for all 10 classes (Paid before Dec 12)
  •  SPECIAL LIMITED OFFER —  $85 for the 8-weeks (starting Jan 9) IF PAID BEFORE DEC 12
  •  8-weeks (starting Jan 9) PAID AFTER Dec 12 goes up to $99.

To Register for the Winter classes, Email Lisa Lynam to be put on the class roster, then send your payment to arrive by the start date as directed on the website payment page. Please note, we’d like to encourage paypal (preferably CASH, DEBIT or eCheck) as the method of payment. New mermaids need to fill out the INFO sheet downloadable from that page too.

2-for-1 SPECIAL and other Incentives

·         Because we know everyone is concerned about their finances these days, and I don’t want to see anyone left out for financial reasons, I will offer TWO 2-for-1 spots in the class for any mermaid, new or veteran, who signs up a NEW friend. Thus, you both get 50% off. First come, first awarded.

·         For a new Recession-Friendly twist to the Attendance Award (which is meant to encourage and emphasize the value of pure participation, rather than performance) instead of a free swim suit from Lane 4, or signed copy of my book Triathlon for Women, I will award the person with the best attendance record (by % of classes) with a FREE registration to their next class. In the event of a tie, there will be a draw.

Happy swimming,

Coach Lisa

Kaz Elskes as Mermaid Spotlight

Posted by coachlisa on November 2, 2009

It has been a while since the Summer Session ended, but Women First Swimming has updated the website with the latest Mermaid Spotlight interview with Kaz Elskes here.

Althought Kaz joined the program only recently for the January 2009 program, her enthusiasm was evident from the start. Both Coach Sara and Lisa selected Kaz for the Mermaid Spotlight based on her exceptional attendance record, positive attitude and encouraging friends and co-workers to joing the program this summer.

Well done Kaz on getting back into swimming and learning the joys of gliding in the water with fellow water-loving mermaids!
