Swim Seasons: What you need to know to register


DMSF's year is divided into two seasons: 

  • The Short Course Season runs from September through February. Throughout this season, the team practices at the 25-yard pool at Valley High School in West Des Moines (and other area pools) and participates in USA Swimming short course meets, culiminating at the state championships.
  • The Long Course Season is April through July. For this short and fun-fulled season, swimmers practice at the 50-yard outdoor pool at Birdland Pool in Des Moines, the 25-meter pool at the Clive Aquatic Center, and other pools in the area.
