Dear DFAC Swimming New Parents ~

Are you the parent of a new swimmer?  Has your child participated on a team before, but this is your first experience on a USA Swimming team?Welcome to the team!! We’re here to help!

Remember:  ALL swimmers were “new” swimmers, at one point – regardless of what age or ability they are at now!  And, all swim parents were “new” swim parents at one point, too!

DFAC Swimming offers the following new parent resources: 

  • New Swimmer Placement Sessions:  parent volunteers on hand to answer new family questions
  • Welcome to our Team! New Parent / Family Meetings! Meet & Greet's (first week of practices)
  • New Family Orientation (sample meeting agenda)
  • Swim meets for New Parents
  • Team Unify for New Parents tutorials: Meet Registration How-To
  • OnDeck Parent app:  download this app from Team Unify, in order to access your swimmer's swim information on the go!
  • Contact any DFAC Swimming Board Member  with any questions or concerns.  No question is silly!

 In addition, periodically throughout each swim session, our team schedules in-person training sessions.  Watch our calendar and your email for scheduled meetings! 

 Welcome to the team ~ see you at the pool!
