DC Water Wizards
The Water Wizards is DC's resident 50+ aquatics program using DC public pools and staff to provide pool-based fitness opportunities for seniors of all levels -- from water-aerobics, to learn-to-swim, to swimming as exercise, to competitors at the highest levels; including a team of men and women who compete at the national level for the City. The Water Wizards carries out a vibrant development plan geared to support and enhance productive aquatic and educational programs to build a healthy community across all age levels. The Water Wizards' advocacy role supports aquatics programs throughout the City for all age levels, and emphasizes the proper maintenance and full utilization of the public's pools.
