The HVGC Swim Team is a summer swim program designed to teach young athletes the four competitive strokes. While we strive to be the best possible team, we believe winning is about more than first place.
We compete in meets as part of PASDA, the Princeton Area Swim and Dive Association. Our team commitment is to help children grow in character as well as physical development and skill.
Our team is run by a combination of coaches and parents. The HVGC coaches work closely with each swimmer to teach them how to improve their swimming. We foster an environment of sportsmanship above all. HVGC summer swim is a great place for everyone from beginning to experienced swimmers. We offer programs starting as young as 4 years. Our goal each summer is to provide a fun and productive swim experience for families. We look forward to seeing you on the pool deck!
Flexible Practice Times
We realize summer can be a hectic time of the year. Even if you can’t make every practice, you can still be a part of the Swim Team. Please see the Swim Team calendar for the complete summer practice schedule.
Stroke & Turn Clinic
We are offering Stroke and Turn Clinic for those who can perform all four strokes and are looking to perfect their technique. This is offered to Swim Team members only.
Our Stroke & Turn Clinic schedule is on the Swim Team calendar. This special offering will focus on developing and refining stroke technique, starts, turns and finishes for all four competitive strokes. Swimmers will practice strength and dry land training and racing strategies. The cost of this clinic is $140 per swimmer.
Our Minnows program is designed for those swimmers aged 4 & up, who would benefit from small group swim lessons. This is a great way to get your little one ready to join the Swim Team! Lessons will take place Monday through Thursday most weeks. Please see the Swim Team calendar for the entire summer schedule.
