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 for the Short Course 2018-2019 season have been completed. Please check back for information regarding evaluations for Long Course 2019 Season.
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.
Please contact the membership director at DDSTmembership@gmail.com with any questions.
