Our current plan for this Session of NDAC is up to 20 swimmers in the pool per group, 4 per lane. Swimmers will space out during practices to allow for 6' social distancing to be maintained between swimmers at all times. Each registered swimmer will be assigned a Practice Group of 20 swimmers. These Practice Groups will be further divided into Pods of 4 swimmers of similar ability/speed who will share a lane where possible. Practice Groups will always swim together at the same times and on the same days. There is no switching or swapping of Practice Group spots once they have been established.

NDAC will keep siblings in the same Practice Group and in the same Pod/Lane whenever possible.


  • Group 2+ (10 and under/11 and up):  $330 for 13-Week Session (swimming 3 days per week, 3.0 hours per week) Preference will given to 10 and under swimmers for the first 10 spots, and the remaining spots can be filled with older swimmers looking to swim 3 days a week
  • Group 3 (11 and up): $660 for 13-Week Session (swimming 5 days per week, 6.0 hours per week)
