Ilda Clippers Swim Team
The Ilda Swim Team competes in the Northern Virginia Swim League. Each swim meet has races in most strokes for all ages, ranging from beginning swimmers to experienced eighteen-year-olds. The Ilda Clippers have a long tradition of friendly competition with an emphasis on stroke refinement and sportsmanship. The swim team is an excellent opportunity for youths and parents to make new friends, establish roots in the community, and get some exercise.
Swimming regularly is good exercise, and the sport can be practiced for a lifetime. Swimming works your entire body, improving cardiovascular conditioning, muscle strength, endurance, posture, and flexibility all at the same time. Swimming uses most of your major muscle groups and conditions the upper and lower body.
The swim team also sponsors a Winter Swim Program (Ocotber–May) just minutes from our neighborhood.
