Please note:

Team operations for 2021 will be different due to the pandemic. This Team Handbook mostly applies to our regular season operations, but is being left largely unedited in order to provide an idea of how our team functions historically.

Team Handbook

Welcome to the Herndon Community Center Halibut Swim Team! The coaching staff is excited to begin this summer’s season! Jenna Schwartz will be returning as head coach of the Halibuts this year. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and other commitments, her role will be mostly administrative and virtual. She has been working with the team for many years and is excited to start a new season. 

The Herndon Halibut Swim Team is a member of the Herndon Swim League. This league is mostly a developmental league, so a great deal of emphasis will be placed on the improvement of all four competitive strokes. However, we also want the swimmers to have fun at both practice and swim meets!  With the help of the coaching staff and parents, we feel we can have a very successful and rewarding season. The coaching staff looks forward to meeting your swimmer and helping them improve their swimming this summer!
