Fall 2019 Swim Program 

* *  For information on our new Dolphin Pups Developmental Program for swimmers ages 6-8, click here  * *

This year our DNA Fall Swim Program will consist of two sessions: September 3 - November 29 and December 2 - January 30. Our DNA Fall Swim program is perfect for the summer athlete who wants to improve on swim technique, dives, turns, and endurance.

Open to swimmers ages 7-18. You do not have to be a member of Del Norte Club or the Del Norte Dolphins Swim Team to participate. All swimmers must have at least one year of team experience and have the ability to swim all four strokes. This is not a lesson program. Swimmers must register with United States Swimming (Seasonal USA registration is approx. $45, Flex USA registration allowing only 2 meets during the season, approx. $20). Swimmers are responsible for United States Swimming Registration and must show proof of registration by the first day of practice. All meets have an entry fee, as well as per event fee. Swimmers are expected to participate in 2 or more practices a week and 2 meets during the season.

Each group will be limited to the first 15 swimmers signed up. A waiting list will be started once a group fills up. If an opening comes up #1 on waiting list will be given the first opportunity. We reserve the right to add swimmers to a group at any time at our discretion. No early signups.

Swimmers should arrive at the pool 10 minutes before their practice time.

Our mission is to provide the youth of our community the knowledge to succeed in and out of the water, and to promote the sport of swimming in our area. Athletes will be given the opportunity to pursue all their goals this fall and are capable of many achievements. We pride ourselves on the swim techniques taught in our program, which will translate into a more stroke efficient, faster swimmer. Beyond mastering skills and achieving physical fitness, our swimmers will gain confidence, sportsmanship, discipline, commitment, and an understanding that success results from hard work and goal setting. Swimmers will learn that you get what you work for, not what you wish for.
