DART at Davis Aquadarts offers fall swimming options for new and novice swimmers at Community Pool. We offer two sessions for fall: an 8-week session from Sept. 3-Oct. 25, and a full quarter option from Sept. 3-Nov. 27.  All sessions are held at Community Pool and Civic Pool.

Our popular Minidarts program for younger swimmers is offered through our DART Swim School during the spring and fall months.  Please check here  for information on DART Swim School. Swim School is on TWTH beginning Sept. 3 at Community Pool, with two 4-week sessions available.

Registration for both Falldarts and DART Swim School opens on July 24. A link will be posted here when registration opens.  Falldart sessions will remain open for registration until full; once a session fills, you can sign up for the wait list.

NEW PARENT MEETING

There will be a New Parent Meeting for swimmers in Bronze and Silver, held on Thursday Sept. 5 from 6:30-7:30pm, location TBA. We’ve found this meeting is helpful for all families new to Aquadarts – we go over such things as swim meet options, ordering swim gear (suits, parkas…), team activities, parent volunteering, and much more.
