Dublin Community Swim Team

The Dublin Community Swim Team Sea Dragons is recreational and competitive swim team that operates under the banner of USA Swimming. The Sea Dragon program runs year round with two major seasons. The Sea Dragons are available to both new swim team members and experienced athletes who want to learn how to participate in the sport or for those who have set high goals.

Members of the team must live within the Dublin School District or be a Dublin City Resident. Swimmers do not need a DCRC annual pass to participate. Placement is determined by ability and age. 

More information is available at dublinseadragons.org


New Swimmer Evaluations

The Sea Dragons have minimum qualifications to participate in the program. If this is your first time joining the team, you are required to come to an evaluation at the DCRC or obtain an accepted reference from your prior team coach. At the evaluations, the coach determines if each swimmer is ready for swim team or if they need more personal and fundamental attention through either swim lessons or the youth fitness swim class. Swimmers are able to “re-evaluate” if needed. References from prior coaches may be communicated to Lynn Bowers: [email protected].

Evaluations will be held on March 10 & 11 from 5:15-6:00pm at the DCRC. Additional days and times may be added and will be posted at dublinseadragons.org.

When scheduling an appointment please include:

•        Prior swim experience
•        USA Swimming ID# if you are coming from another USA Swimming club
•        Age of the swimmer
•        Gender of the swimmer

This information will be used to help place the swimmer properly upon evaluation.

Completing an evaluation DOES NOT save your swimmer a seat in the Sea Dragons program.
