2021 Summer Swim Team General Registration Information

For Swimmers Ages 5 - 18

The 2021 summer swim season will begin on Monday, April 5, 2021, and continue through July 25, 2021.  The team has been hard at work behind the scenes putting together a safe and fun season for our athletes and their families.  This season will look and run differently than in the past, as we must adhere to distancing requirements and protocols outlined by public health.  In order to accommodate as many swimmers as we can, we will be offering 2 swimming cohorts.  Families will choose to register to either:

POD A POD B
 Mondays and Wednesdays, with alternating Fridays Tuesdays  and Thursdays, with alternating Fridays


To maintain distance on the pool deck and in the water, pods will allow for 12 swimmers in each 6U pod, and 24 swimmers in every other age group pod.  To help keep our swimmers and their families, our coaches, and our volunteers safe, masks will be required to be worn on deck, and when entering and exiting the pool area.  To streamline entry onto the pool deck area, swimmers will also be required to complete a wellness survey online before arriving at their practice.

Volunteer Requirements

The 2021 season will look and run differently.  The Arden Park Dolphins Swim Team prides itself on well-run events, which is due entirely to our dedicated parent volunteers!  While we do not have clear guidelines at this time, we are working on ways to offer competition for our swimmers (mini-meets, virtual meets).  We need your help to make these events successful!  More details will be shared as information becomes available.  We appreciate your support!

The Arden Park Dolphins Swim Team is a member of the Northern California Swim League.
