DCST SWIM CLINICS!

The Dublin Sea Dragon program year after year continues to achieve high levels of excellence at all levels.  Our age group swimmers (14&Under) are taking home more trophies from Championship swim meets including The Barbara Kay Mini-Champs, Central Ohio Regionals, Junior Olympics, and The Central Zone swim meet. At all of the previous mentioned meets, Dublin Sea Dragon Swimmers have brought home some impressive awards including high point winner, state champions (individual and relay) and podium recognition.   This success then continues at our highest level of athletes (typically high school age swimmers) who have also achieved high levels of excellence.  We now have Sea Dragon swimmers attending National level competitions such as Sectionals, Futures, Junior and Senior National events as well as The Olympic Trials and Junior World Champs, which was held in Budapest!  The majority of these swimmers attending these national level events started off as Sea Dragons under the age of 10!  Pretty exciting stuff for our Team! 

 

In order to offset additional costs (apparel, equipment, training costs, travel, etc) associated with competing at the national level; the DCST Booster Board would like to offer a fundraising opportunity for our National Team swimmers (defined as swimmers with sectional cuts and above). These funds will be managed by the Booster Board.

 

We would like to kick off this effort with an event that all Dublin Sea Dragon age group swimmers can participate in!  The Senior Group and National Team swimmers will be offering a Swim Clinic (overseen and guided by DCST coaching staff) to provide an additional learning experience for your children.  This is will be a great way for your children to learn from those older swimmers as well as become inspired by them at the same time.These swim clinic will focus on skills such as starts, turns, finishes and even tweaking a stroke (ie: quick breathing with freestyle for example) and they will be a lot fun for the swimmers too!  The Junior and Senior National Sea Dragon Qualifiers will also talk with the younger kids about their experiences at these "Big Stage" National meets. They will talk about the goals that they set for themselves. Included will be all the ups and downs, successes and failures that they encountered along the way-as well as how much fun these meets can be.  Plan on about 30 minutes of discussion and feel free to have your swimmer bring questions to ask these older swimmers. 

 

The clinics will be on Saturday mornings from 9:00AM – 10:30AM at the Dublin Rec Center.

These clinics will be set up on Team Unify under “Team Functions”.  Parents will commit/decommit to the event similar to a swim meet and your account will be charged to the credit card on file similar to meet fees. We will have the option to sign up for these clinics on the website soon! 

 

Thank you for your support of our National Team swimmers!  They look forward to working with your young swimmers and hope this provides an opportunity to grow and nurture their swimming goals and dreams into future DCST National Team swimmers!
