(We have relaunched a Winter Swim Program! The goal of the Winter Swim Program is to give members of our summer Neptunes swim team an opportunity to continue developing their strokes in the off-season, and to remain comfortable in the water, so that they don’t lose the progress earned from their hard work over the summer.)

WELCOME to the home 

of the Newington Forest Neptunes!!

Please take time to look through our website, which is full of information about our swim team.  If you have any questions, please email us at swimteam@newingtonforest.org.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Newington Forest Swim Team (NFST INC) is a non-profit 501-(c)3 community based athletic organization. NFST INC is a member of the Northern Virginia Swim League (NVSL), the largest summer swim league in the United States.

The team is comprised strictly of homeowners and renters of the Newington Forest Community Association. This is unique to NVSL swim teams, and we find that it is a special way to bring our community together.  We swim with neighbors and classmates!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The NEPTUNES summer swim program is broken into two parts:

**The Neptunes Swim Team  consists of swimmers from approximately ages six to eighteen. They compete in NVSL A League swim meets and divisional events. The team also participates in the Springfield-Burke developmental league (B-meets) with surrounding pools. Over the course of 2 months in the summer (starting the Tuesday after Memorial Day through the end of July), the team can compete in up to thirteen competitive events, not including All-Stars.

**Our MINI Neptunes program is for children at least four years of age (and potty trained) until approximately seven years of age. This is our developmental program that teaches participants how to swim through close instruction by an adult coach and assisted by teen swimming mentors. The program’s goal is to graduate from the MINI swimmer program to eventually join the Neptunes competitive swim team. 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We measure our success in different ways: team achievements, individual accomplishments, and swimming improvement. But above all, the Neptunes swim team promotes sportsmanship and a positive team environment. Our philosophy is centered on our swimmers demonstrating respect for each other, competing teams, coaches, volunteers, and their parents.

AmazonSmile.org

We have generated a new way to easily donate to the swim team and all you have to do is shop Amazon.com.

The Newington Forest Swim Team (NFST INC) is a non-profit organization registered with the IRS. This allows us to now register for an Amazon Smile account. What that means is for every purchase made on Amazon.com, if you select NFST INC as your charitable organization, Amazon will donate 0.5% directly into our bank account. It isn't a lot, but share our Smile account with friends and family to use, especially during the holiday season, and we can gain a few extra dollars we wouldn't have.
