Thank you for your interest in Dunlap Dolphins.
The Dunlap Dolphins Swim Team is a year round competitive swim team for children of all ages. Evaluations are held before the start of each season for swimmers interested in joining our team.
Evaluations help to make sure that swimmers are ready for a competitive team, have a successful experience and that they are placed in the proper training group. Each training group has specific goals and corresponding skills that are designed to provide a smooth transition to the next training group, and a progressive approach to training that is important to each individual’s long-term development.
Swimmers are evaluated on their ability to swim all four competitive strokes and must be able to complete at least 2 strokes to USA Swimming Standards a full 25 yards without stopping or grabbing the lane lines. If your child can not swim 25 yards without stopping or touching the bottom of the pool, he/she should consider evaluations for a future season.
Evaluation dates and times will be listed below (when scheduled). You only need to attend one day and usually take about 10-15 minutes.
Completion of an evaluation does not guarantee that there is a spot available on DDST in the recommended level. After our returning members have completed registration, coaches will look at evaluations to fill open positions on our team. If a spot is not available at the current time the swimmer will be placed on a wait list.
Evaluations for new swimmers to our team for 2018 Summer Long Course Season is complete. If you missed evaluations and are still interested in swimming with Dunlap Dolphins for the 2018 Long Course Season please contact the membership Director at DDSTmembership@gmail.com .
Please check back for evaluation dates for the upcoming 2018-2019 Short Course Season.
