Longview Sea Dragons

Head Coach - Dawn Van Ryckeghem

[email protected]


The Sea Dragons swim at the Longview Rec Center.  Practice times will be prior to 10am, depending on when your child's age group is scheduled.  Meets are typically on Tuesday afternoons, with the exception of the championship meet, which will be on a weekend (if we are able to hold it at all).  Parents should plan to volunteer throughout the season, as the success of the season depends on your involvement.

New Swimmer Evaluations

Swimmers who have not previously swum for one of our summer league teams typically need to be evaluated and placed in an appropriate practice group, however, it remains to be seen if we will be able to schedule these or not. Please familiarize yourself with the general swimmer requirements on the previous page, and do not register your child if they don't meet those minimum skill requirements.  We will make adjustments after the first practices if need be.

Evalulation date is TBD, and they will be held at the Longview Rec Center, 2909 Commonwealth Dr., Spring Hill.
