Little Liners- Spring 2019
The Lopatcong Swim Team is proud to partner with the Phillipsburg High School Varsity Swim Team to once again offer the Little Liners Swim Program this Spring at the Phillipsburg Elementary School. Please be aware, this is separate from the Lopatcong summer team registration.
"Little Liners" is lead by volunteer head coaches Tracy Herdlein (Phillipsburg Boys Swim Team Head Coach) and Eve Hart with assistance of members of the Phillipsburg High School Swim Team, this program is designed to give both novice and experienced swimmers and introduction to the world of competitive swimming.
In addition to basic swimming and safety skills, participants in this program will learn the competitive swimming strokes, starts and turns, and team sportsmanship concepts.
PLEASE NOTE: THESE SESSIONS ARE NOT DESIGNED TO BE SWIM LESSONS!
All swimmers must be water safe, comfortable being in the pool and be able to swim at least half a lap (12.5 yards) unassisted. Each swimmer will be evaluated during the first few practice sessions to determine the appropriate group assignment.
Also, due to Phillipsburg School District rules, participants in the Little Liner Program must be a resident of Phillipsburg or a resident of a Phillipsburg High School sending district (Alpha, Bloomsbury, Greenwich, Lopatcong and Pohatcong).
