Description

SPRINGDARTS 2018

DART at Davis Aquadarts offers spring swimming options at Community Pool for novice and intermediate swimmers. We offer two sessions for Springdarts 2018. Our 12-week session is March 12 -June 1.  Our 8-week session runs from April 9-June 1. 

Our popular Minidarts program for younger swimmers is offered through our DART Swim School during the spring and fall months.  Please check  here for information on DART Swim School. Swim School is on TWTH in April and May at Community Pool.

Registration for Springdarts and DART Swim School opens on February 15. Springdart sessions will remain open for registration until full; once a session fills, you can sign up for the wait list.  You will find the link for registration HERE on Feb. 15. 

Practice Options: Practices are offered on Monday through Friday.  There are no mandatory practice requirements; we recommend swimming 3/week. Swimmers register for one session, and may only attend that session.

 *Fees include USA annual registration and fees for Davis Meet at Arroyo Pool on May 5-6. Swimmers who enrolled in Aquadarts or Falldarts (not Swim School) for the first time in Fall 2017 can deduct $86.00 from their fees, as your child paid for their 2017-18 USA registration in the fall. All swimmers new to the program will receive a Dart shirt and cap.

There is a 3rd child discount for all families (same household) with 3 or more children; the cost is half of the regular fee for the third and any subsequent children. You must pay the full amount for all children when applying; we will refund you the difference after registration.  The discount is applied to the swimmer with the lowest fees.

Scholarship applications and information can be found at this  link. In addition, USA swimming now has an Outreach program which offers the USA Swimming registration fee of $7.00. This membership operates like the traditional USA membership and is valid from September 1, 2017 to December 31, 2018. To qualify for the Outreach Athletic registration, the athlete’s family must meet the eligibility requirements of one of the following: Cal Works, Covered California/Medi-Cal, Homeless Coalition, Family income at or below state poverty level, Individual Free School Lunch Program, Section 8 housing or Snap. If you think your family may qualify, please contact Miriam Fisk at dartatdavis@hotmail.com for more information.

PRIVATE LESSONS:

Private lessons, which are one-on-one coaching for 30 minute sessions with Aquadart staff, are also available on Wednesdays afternoons and at other times by arrangement. Cost per session is $30. Send inquiries to aquadartswimlessons@gmail.com.
