Swimming is generally a summer sport which takes place in the first and fourth terms. We are most fortunate to have a 25m indoor heated pool and our swimmers have the opportunity, and are encouraged, to train during the winter terms.
Time trials take place at the beginning of the year. The top six swimmers in each age group from U8 – U13 are selected for the team. The team swimmers train on Monday and Thursday afternoons and Tuesday and Thursday mornings. It is compulsory for them to attend three of the four sessions. Training in the second and third terms takes place in the morning from Monday to Thursday.
There are also Intermediate swimming sessions for those learners who don’t make the team and may require stroke correction. These sessions take place on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons.
Besides participating in friendly galas during the year, the highlights of the season are the Zonal Galas, which take place in the first and fourth terms. Sweet Valley competes against Reddam, Herzlia, Sun Valley and Kirstenhof.
