My Beginning Post

Posted on March 25, 2012 at 4:23am 0 Comments

I'm really excited about going back into Swimming. I took a PE (Physical Education) class on Swimming and I did pretty well. My PE Teacher was Michael Elflein. He was real cool and Entertaining. I was a beginner in swimming and still need work on my Strokes. I promised myself that besides getting my driver's license (I live in NY) and while working, I'll start getting back into swimming or learning how to swim again, but this time at the YMCA. I really want to work hard and make a Swim team…

Take scuba lessons from a PADI affiliated dive shop in NYC, then join the Aquatic Voyagers Scuba Club.

We are doing a Discover Scuba Diving actiivity at the Hopewell Community Center swimming pool on Saturday, January 26, 2013 starting at 9:00 a.m.  If you live within 50 miles of Hopewell, VA, it may be worth your while - it is a free activity.  Otherwise, you may have to come to Lake Rawlings when it warms up to take scuba lessons.  You must be able to swim 200 yds non-stop, thread water or survival float for 10 minutes, and swim U/W a minimum distance of 45' (a Lake Rawlings standard).  If you go to our website at www.LakeRawlings.com, you will find a link on our home page for an on-line program.  Make sure you can meet the standards outlined above before going that route.

You should talk with your swim coach about possibilities.

Ryan, I saw your question to Jayson, so I will share some information with you.  If you are truly competitive in swimming, HBCU's like Florida A&M University, Howard University, Alabama A&M, Tuskegee University, Morehouse College, Tennessee State University, etc. all have excellent swim teams.  Look them up and go from there.  Best!
