SUMMERDARTS 2022

Summerdarts/Teendarts/Minidarts will be offered this summer at Community Pool June 13-August 6.

We offer 2 sessions: Session 1 is June 13-July 8; Session 2 is July 11-Aug. 6.  You may sign up for one or both sessions. 

Please see below for which classes still have openings. 

Here is the registration link

New this year: to align with all of our Dart programming, we are switching to a first-come, first-serve registration process for 2022 Summerdart programming.  When classes fill, you may register for the waitlist. We reserve the right to cancel any class not meeting minimum numbers. 

 

Summerdarts is a summer swim team for children ages six through teens.  Swim practices emphasize the introduction and improvement of stroke skills, water fitness, water games, and introduction to competition in a fun atmosphere.  Practices are offered three days per week with no mandatory attendance requirements. Practices are geared for swimmers of all ability levels, from novice to experienced. Summerdart swimmers must be age six by 6/1/22 and must meet minimum skills. 

Minidarts: Younger swimmers ages 4-7 can join our Minidarts program. 30-minute sessions are held at Community Pool twice weekly. Coaches work with children in small groups, teaching them swim skills and the four swim strokes, engage them in fun swim games, and introduce them to swim team and swim meets. Minidart swimmers must be age four by 9/1/22.

Teendarts: This practice is for swimmers ages 11-15.  The focus is on fitness and fun as well as teaching and improving stroke technique. Swimmers should be able to swim 25 yards of freestyle and backstroke comfortably to join this group. Practices are offered three times weekly with no mandatory practice requirements.

DAYS OF THE WEEK INFO: Summerdarts and Teendarts are offered Monday through Friday.  Swimmers do not have to sign up for MWF or TTHF sessions as we did in 2020 and 2021.  Instead, we are offering more flexibility in practices: swimmers may attend up to 3 workouts per week, and can choose any two days M-T-W-TH.  The third day each week should be Friday, as we have extra space for all swimmers on Fridays. Swimmers can vary their days MTWTH weekly, and do not need to let us know of their choices.  

Minidarts sign up for MW or TTH options, as we have found this works best for our younger swimmers. 

EVALUATIONS

Summerdart swimmers must meet minimum swim skills. To assess skills, we will do Swim Evaluations of all swimmers new to program and to all returning swimmers ages 10 and under.  These will be at Community Pool on Sunday May 21 and other times TBA.  

PLEASE NOTE: We do not do evaluations of Minidarts.  Swimmers currently swimming in Darts/Springdarts or Dart Swim School do not need to do evaluations, as we can assess their swim level at their spring sessions.

At evaluations, swimmers must demonstrate the following skills to be eligible for Summerdarts:

  • Freestyle (ability to swim 20 yards, with breathing, unaided)
  • Backstroke (ability to swim 20 yards, unaided)
  • Bobs (rhythmic breathing)
  • Kicking with a kickboard
  • Comfort of swimming in all areas/depths of water

Swimmers age 7 and under who do not meet these levels will be assigned to Minidarts. 

Minidarts do not need evaluations but must meet the following minimum skills to participate:  

  • Comfortable in the water
  • Bobbing (rhythmically breathing with face in and out of the water while standing in water or holding on to side)
  • Willing to put face in the water and float comfortably
  • Ability to take one or more breaths while floating and/or kicking with a kickboard
