The City of Ballwin hosts a swim
and dive team every summer. This fun recreational league caters to
swimmers and divers age 5-18 years. We provide friendly
competition between neighboring communities while focusing on
learning, team work, sportsmanship, and most importantly
We strive to promote a positive
and fun environment for swimmers and divers. The Ballwin Blue
Dolphin Swim and Dive Team is a recreational team with an emphasis
on developing basic competitive skills. Swimmers and divers, ages
5-18 years, are welcome to participate. We welcome all skill levels
on our team. Please note that swim team is
NOT a substitute for swim lessons.
Our team requires a swim test for
all new members under the age of 8 to be able to swim 25 yards
continuously on their own, no assistance. This is a safety
precaution for our swimmers. All new swimmers (including siblings
of returning swimmers) age 8 and under are required to participate
in a swim test. Young swimmers will be required to swim 25 yards
(one length of the pool) unassisted with constant forward movement.
The swimmers may not stop and/or grab the wall or lap lane while
taking the test. We do not expect your swimmer to have a perfect
stroke. These steps are taken for safety precautions. We want to
ensure your swimmer is able to meet the minimum needs for practices
and swim meets. If unable to complete the required swim test a full
refund will be given.
