Dublin Community Swim Team - About Us

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:

  • Fall/Winter Session - aka SHORT COURSE season.  The name is because it is primarily swam indoor in a 25 yard pool.  The season runs September - February (for most groups). 
  • Spring/Summer Session - aka LONG COURSE season.  The name is because it is swam in both indoor/outdoor 50 meter pools.  This season runs April - July (for most groups).

The Sea Dragons are available to both new swim team members (with swim experience) and experienced swim athletes who want to learn how to participate in the sport and who have set high goals.

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

More information (fees, schedules and groups) is available at dublinseadragons.org

New Swimmer Evaluations (includes Transfer Swimmers)

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. 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 swimming class. 

**Swimmers TRANSFERRING from another swim team must schedule and attend a swim evaluation.  This will give you an opportunity to meet with Coaching Staff and discuss your training goals.

Evaluations for 2022 are now closed.    

An appointment for an evaluation is REQUIRED.

When signing up for 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.  It allows you to be eligible to register.  Registration is on a first come basis and fills quickly.
