Summerdarts, offered by the Davis Aquadarts, is an eight-week summer swim team for children ages five through teens.  Swim practices emphasize the introduction and improvement of stroke skills, water fitness, water games, and introduction to competition in a fun atmosphere.  Hour-long practices are offered M-F with no mandatory attendance requirements. Practices are geared for swimmers of all ability levels, from novice to experienced. Optional swim meets will be held on weekends and some evenings throughout the summer.

Some practice sessions offer workouts specifically for teens that are designed to improve overall fitness and swimming techniques in a fun, social setting geared to their age group. 

Minidarts: Younger swimmers ages 4-6 can join our Minidarts program. 30-minute sessions are held at Community Pool on T-W-TH from June 23-July 30. Coaches work with children in small groups, teaching them swim skills and the four swim strokes, engage them in fun swim games, and introduce them to swim team and swim meets. Optional swim meets are offered.
