NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. - With the YMCA pool officially reopened, the New Rochelle Sailfish Swimming squad is seeking interested youths looking to join the team for the short course season in September.
Earlier this year, the New Rochelle YMCA named veteran coach and trainer Ann Horowitz as the head coach of the Sailfish swimming team, who is now seeking athletes looking to try out for the squad this summer.
Before the pool was shut down for repairs on the damaged drop roof and ceiling for the better part of a year, Horowitz could be found teaching swim lessons at the YMCA, where she has served as a swim instructor for athletes with special needs. She has four years of coaching experience on summer league and high school varsity teams, training swimmers between 7 and 17-years-old.
A certified CPR/AED and first aid coach, she has competed in high school and collegiately, earning All-America, All-State and All-County honors. She began swimming at a YMCA organization in Connecticut, where she once finished in the top 5 overall nationally.
According to Horowitz, the team will “welcome experienced swimmers, as well as those interested in making the transition from learn-to-swim or recreational swimming to competitive swimming.” She advised those interested in trying out to come ready to show off their form in freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly races.
Those interested in swim lessons or joining the New Rochelle YMCA Sailfish swimming team can call (914) 632-1818 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
