MacGregor Downs is proud to be home to the MacDolphins Swim Team. All swimmers ages 4-18 are encouraged to join this dynamic, fun-loving group. The MacDolphins compete the month of June against other local country clubs as a member of the Raleigh Area Country Club Swim League (RACCSL). Swim meets are held on Saturday mornings and Tuesday evenings during the month of June with a Championship Meet held June 26th. Practices will begin May 16th. Not confident your child can swim the length of the pool? Not to worry. Coaches will evaluate each new swimmer on the first day of practice and place them appropriately. Swim lessons are offered by the coaches all season long!
By joining the MacDolphins, your child will learn the lifelong skill of swimming through 36 offered practices, 4 regular meets, and 1 championship meet. Registration fees are $110 per swimmer for ages 5-14 and $20 for ages 15-18; fees will be charged to your member account on May 30, 2018. If a member joins the swim team in June after the initial May billing, the member will be charged on their June billing cycle. There are no prorated fees for joining swim team after the season has started. If a member chooses to withdraw their child from the team by end of the second practice, Tuesday, May 15, 2018, and emails Youth Director Charlotte Freeman with this choice in writing, they will receive a full refund. Any withdrawals after that date are non-refundable.
We also offer our MacMinnies program for children who are not quite ready to join the MacDolphins. MacMinnies are coached by the MacDolphins coaching staff and get a chance to experience group swim practice in a team-like environment. Ages range from 3-6, but participation is primarily determined by ability and confidence in pool.
