This is the home of the Delaware, Ohio D.A.R.T. Stingrays swimming and diving team. We offer a team sport, for youth ages 5-18, which considers each individual an important ingredient. Our 42 year old Delaware Recreation aquatics program has been built on the following principles:

D - Dedication needed to achieve tasks attempted
A - Attitude, understanding the power of a positive one
R - Respect for teammates, competitors and officials
T - Team and the need to work together
S - Success achievable on an individual and team basis
The D.A.R.T.S. program offers instruction, training and participation in competitive swimming and diving. Each summer we are fortunate to have approximately 210 participants who spend a part of their summer vacation practicing and competing against other teams in Central Ohio. We offer a Spring and a Summer session, information about which can be found under the Registration heading. Our competitions are held on Wednesday evenings and Saturday morning, depending on the league in which your swimmer/diver competes.
As the head coach of D.A.R.T.S. I challenge you to get involved in our program. It is unlike any other team sport. Many participants get involved at age 6 or 7 and stay involved through their high school graduation! The coaching staff (many of which are D.A.R.T.S. alumni) provide instruction in a sport which is lifelong. It is a thrill to see the teamwork that develops between an older and younger athlete. It truly builds on the idea that Together Everyone Achieves More. I hope you will consider joining me as I embark on my 43rd year of involvement with the D.A.R.T.S.
Aquatically yours,
Coach Bill Rietz
