Senior Competitive Swim Training
The DC Department of Parks and Recreation provides training for seniors ages 55 and older interested in competitive swimming. Through this training, seniors will learn the proper techniques of DC Senior Games competitive swimming with an emphasis on safety (athletes perform at their own level).
