Students who enjoy swimming will have a chance to further their interest with Harker’s Aquatics Discovery summer program, available to students aged 7 to 12. Dedicated, experienced swim coaches will help students build fitness both in and out of the water, as well as offer them a wide variety of aquatic activities, such as competitive swim instruction, snorkeling and water polo.
The program, which runs from June 18-21, is headed up by Harker swim coach Ron Usher, who also coaches boys junior varsity water polo. His method employs fun games and activities that teach every student valuable swimming skills. Formerly the head aquatics coach at Foothill College, a post he held for 10 years, Usher has taught everyone from beginners to national champions. This coed program will take place at the Singh Aquatic Center at Harker’s upper school campus, and all students will receive a camp T-shirt. Students who wish to participate in this program must be able to swim 25 yards.
Those interested can find more information and register for the program by visiting the Harker Summer Aquatics web pages.
