The DWST offers training and practice groups for swimmers of all ages and ability levels. It is the goal of the Dunes West Swim Team to offer age specific training for all of our athletes geared towards challenging each individual and developing each individual to the best of their abilities. *All new swimmers, regardless of age, will be asked to tryout prior to the start of the season to ensure they are safe for the team.
