Our Masters Swim Program Expands!
We are happy to announce a partnership with the University of the District of Columbia (UDC) to offer coached swim practices for the early risers of DC Tri Club - Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at the newly renovated UDC Natatorium (4200 Connecticut Avenue, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20008). Practice starts at 5:45 A.M. and lasts an hour. Our new UDC option builds on our highly successful evening program at the Wilson Aquatics Center, currently sold-out through the end of 2012. Join us at UDC for our introductory one-month session, November 14 through December 19. As with our evening program at Wilson, our sessions at UDC will emphasize triathlon-specific swimming goals, such as open water drills and endurance freestyle sets. The cost for our introductory one-month session, which includes all pool entrance fees, is $90 for all workouts (MWF). Or for $25, join us only on Friday mornings (4 sessions only, due to holidays).
If you are on the fence or you want to see what all the fuss is about - You are Invited to the Club-Wide Swim Practice at UDC. Try out our new UDC pool digs for a free coach-led swim on Saturday, November 17, 8-10 A.M. We'll start off with an overview of the workout, allow you to warm up and then do an hour-long set. Our coaches on deck will provide feedback on stroke mechanics along the way. There will be extra time at the end of practice for us to answer questions and for you to get in a little extra time in the water. Space is limited, so reserve your spot ASAP.
The pool is located within UDC’s sports complex at 4200 Connecticut Ave., N.W., Washington, D.C. 20008. It’s labeled “Building 47” (a.k.a. the “physical activities center”) on Google maps. The closest entrance to the pool is located on Yuma Street, above the tennis courts. Follow the stairs up to the building entrance. If arriving by metro, the closest station is just 3 blocks away (Van Ness/UDC) on the red line. If arriving by car, there is metered parking immediately outside Building 47 and ample, free neighborhood parking within walking distance from the pool (zoned for 3-hr visitor’s parking).
