New Swimmer Evaluations, Summer 2021

New swimmers must attend a one-on-one evaluation at the DCRC lap pool. This determines eligibility for the team, not registration.  Evaluations will take place (no appointment needed):

April 17, 2021 from 1PM until 2PM for siblings of returning swimmers at DCRC. No appointment needed.

April 18, 2021 from 1PM until 2:30PM for new swimmers at DCRC. No appointment needed.

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 Bill Wadley with questions ([email protected])

Swimmers who have competed on year round programs do not need to be evaluated and may get an exemption from Bill Wadley ([email protected]).

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