The Our Lady of Snows Swim Program runs for the boys from October through January girls runs from January through April and is open to students ages 7-14 for the 2023-2024 school years. The program is open to boys and girls who live in the Our Lady of Snows parish or live in adjoining parishes that do not have their own CYO swim program. We practice once a week (at Immaculate Conception Center in Douglaston), swim in approximately 8-9 meets a season and then participate in the CYO championships.
While we do work on improving stroke techniques, this is not swimming lessons. Children must be able to swim 25 yards (1 lap of the pool) without assistance. Swimming test will be given the first day of practice for all new swimmers.
Friday evenings at Bayside High School, Richmond Hill High School or Fort Hamilton High School at either 7:00 PM, 8:00 PM or 9:00 PM. Times vary from week to week. Boys’ swim meets are held from November through January and girls’ swim meets are held from January through April. There are also additional weekend meets at the end of each season for Olympics and Championships. The times and locations for these meets vary.
