Heartland Swim Association, an East County swim club, has opened registration for its Summer League program that begins June 24 at 10 locations, including Ramona High School.
A special incentive is being offered for paid registrations received by May 17.
Heartland Summer League is designed for swimmers of all abilities from the ages of 6 to 18. Practices are held three days a week with competitive swim meets held on weekends in July. The Summer League culminates in an All-Team Championship meet at El Cajon Valley High School on Aug. 2 and 3.
“Summer League is a great introduction to the exciting sport of competitive swimming,” said Pat Tope, president of Heartland Swim Association. “The Heartland summer program has become so popular among swimmers and their parents that we are encouraging early registration in order to guarantee a spot on a team.”
In addition to Ramona High, teams will meet at these locations: El Cajon High School, El Capitan High School, Grossmont High School, La Mesa Municipal, Montgomery Middle School, Santana High School, Steele Canyon High School, Valhalla High School, and West Hills High School.
Paid registrations received by May 17 will be entered into a drawing for a free week of Watersports Camp at the Mission Bay Aquatic Center.
The cost for the Heartland Summer League program is $190. Families with multiple swimmers are entitled to a discounted price of $180 for the second swimmer and $150 for each additional swimmer.
