About

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 FUN!

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.
