Walden Glen Swim & Racquet Club was established in 1969. We have a convenient, but out-of-the-way location off Carrleigh Parkway, a beautiful pool, tennis, basketball and volleyball court, and a spacious picnic area. Our swim and dive teams compete in the
Be on for all practices with everything you need, including suit, goggles, cap, towel, and water bottle. Swimmers must obey the coaches and follow all pool rules.
Success in summer swimming is directly linked to time in the water. Success does not necessarily mean winning events or improving race times. Success also means confident and happy children in the water. Consistent practicing over the 8-week regular season can yield amazing improvements. As many of us know, routines are good for most children, and the daily practice routine helps get the day going. The coaches will ensure that practices are fun and challenging for all age groups.
If you are swimming on Saturday, please do not stay out in the sun on Friday afternoons. Coaches do not want to see dual meet swimmers hanging out at the pool (aside from the pep rally)!
Other team information
During the first weeks of afternoon practice, parents may remain on the deck during practices but please hold all comments or questions for the coaches until after practice is finished. Once morning practices have begun, parents are NOT allowed on deck during practices. Please sit in the pavilion or the grassy area.
Our team spans all ages. Conduct from coaches, swimmers and parents should be an example to our younger swimmers and appropriate for observation and imitation.
If the pool is open, the team will practice. At meets, we swim rain or shine. NVSL dual meets are rarely rescheduled and never canceled. If there is inclement weather, swimmers should wait in cars until a decision has been made by the Team Reps on when the meet will resume. If weather may be an issue, watch for emailed updates.
Nutrition and hydration for your swimmer
On meet days, a good light breakfast is the order. Remember athletes need healthy fuel to swim. Let your swimmer have a doughnut AFTER the day’s swims, not before. The concessions crew wants your sales, but spread the purchases out over the course of the morning.
All swimmers should bring their own water bottles both to practices and meets with their name indelibly written on the bottle. Hydration is a key element in swimming.
