Welcome to the 2018 Mini Sea Dragons!
All registrations for Cary Park Sea Dragons first REQUIRES:
Cary Park Swim Club Family Membership - Applied, Paid, and Confirmed
Mini Sea Dragons
The Mini Sea Dragons is our pre-competitive group for swimmers ages 8 and under who are not quite ready to participate on our competitive team.
The Mini Sea Dragons typically have at least one swim meet during the season on a Saturday morning, but do not participate in the Tuesday night dual meets (unless invited).
Swimmers cannot sign up specifically for the Mini Sea Dragons. The way this works is the swimmer is signed up as a swimmer on the team through our normal registration process. Then, all new swimmers ages 8 & Under are “evaluated” during the first two weeks of the season before joining the normal practice groups.
- The criteria for the competitive team is the ability to swim the length of the pool multiple times as evaluated by the coaches.
- The criteria for Mini Sea Dragons (pre-competitive team) is the ability to swim at least 10 yards independently and the ability to get their own breath while swimming.
2018 Practice Times
Monday through Thursday – 6:15 to 6:45pm
*No practice on Tuesday afternoons starting June 12th
Monday through Friday – 10:00 to 10:30am
*Morning practices begin June 12th
*No Saturday morning practices
The Mini Sea Dragons do not participate in the normal Tuesday night meets. The Mini Sea Dragon meet will be announced early in the season. This meet will go roughly 30 minutes. We will ask the Mini Sea Dragon parents to volunteer to help us run the meet – there are no huge jobs, so don’t worry.
Sea Dragon Equipment
We do have a team swim suit (see Spirit Wear Tab), but it is not required for the Mini Sea Dragons. Many do purchase the suit, and we encourage that, but if you haven’t done so – you do not have to have the exact team swim suit.
All the swimmers should have goggles, and we encourage caps for longer hair.
The Sea Dragons have many social activities throughout the season, and Mini Sea Dragons are always welcome to swim team socials, including:
- Themes at our swim meets
- Dragon dessert on Thursdays
And much more!!! Keep checking our “Social Activities” tab on the web-site for more activities and details.
