Philosophy  of DSC

The DSC program is designed to achieve several goals: to promote both the mental and physical growth in every swimmer and to foster lasting friendships among teammates.  It is the swimmer’s responsibility to learn to budget time, set goals, and to do the best with the ability they have.  Winning is the desire to improve.  DSC strives to make the swimming experience both fun and rewarding, so that the sport will be a part of their future as student athletes. As a member of DSC, you will be instructed in the four competitive swimming strokes:  Butterfly, Backstroke, Breaststroke and Freestyle.   Learning to master new strokes is a significant accomplishment in itself and this will enable you to become a more diverse swimmer.

REQUIREMENTS FOR ALL DSC SWIMMERS

We encourage swimmers to have a pair of goggles for practice.  These goggles can be worn for meets, or your swimmer may want a pair that are dedicated meet goggles.  If your swimmer wears a cap during practice, make sure they have at least one back up.  Caps tear quite often.  Your swimmer will need a practice suit and also a team suit for meets.  All DSC swimmers are required to have fins by WEEK 2 of practice.  Flying Feet sells suits, goggles, caps and fins.  Or you can choose to purchase through any swim website.
