New Swimmer Evaluations, Summer 2022

New swimmers must attend a one-on-one evaluation at the DCRC lap pool. This determines eligibility for the team, not registration.  Please contact Coach Lynn Bowers to schedule an evaluation before registration closes on May 13.

Ability Requirements: The swim team is not a replacement for swim lessons and all new members must pass an evaluation.

  • Swimmers joining as 9 and older must be able to swim 50 yards (2 lengths of the competition pool) freestyle without stopping and with proper breathing and be able to swim 25 yards backstroke.
  • Swimmers competing as 8 and younger must be able to float comfortably on both front and back, and swim 25 yards freestyle and backstroke. 

Parents, please review the requirements listed above prior to bringing children for an evaluation. Swimmers who are unable to complete the requirements, are recommended to register for swim lessons or to return for another evaluation.  Please contact Coach Lynn Bowers with questions.

Completing an evaluation DOES NOT save your swimmer a seat in the Dolphins program!  (Please complete the evaluation AND registration.)
