JUNIOR GUARD CONDITIONING COACHES NEEDED - MANDATORY! 

Our biggest fundraiser of the year is the Junior Guard Conditioning program for elementary and middle school students who need to pass the JG Swim Test or would like to condition before the JG program starts in June.  Coach Reichardt leads the program, which is taught by freshmen and sophomore students from Girls Water Polo, Boys Water Polo and Swim.  Our players always have a great time teaching the younger kids with their water polo and swim friends.  JG Conditioning runs 3 sessions, with the aim to increase swimming speed so the younger students can pass one of the three scheduled JG swim tests.  Every freshman and sophomore Girls Water Polo player is required to teach these younger students during one of three sessions:

3/12 - 3/30  Monday/Tuesday/Thursday    5:30-6:30pm
4/9 - 4/27    Monday/Tuesday/Thursday    5:30-6:30pm
