Swim Groups

Group A – We call this group our “Little Gators.”  Ideal for beginner swimmers starting at age 5 (4 if entering kindergarten in the fall).  Swimmers will learn to get comfortable with the water by first putting faces in the water, going completely underwater, learning to float, to learning the basics of the freestyle and backstroke.  Young elementary.

Group B – This is for new swimmers who are comfortable in the water and can move around in the water without help.  Here swimmers will learn the basics of the four strokes: backstroke, breaststroke, free stroke, and butterfly. Young elementary.

Group C – This is for swimmers who can swim all four strokes.  Here they will work on perfecting their stroke technique and build up their stamina.  Older elementary.

Group D – Members in this group are perfecting their stroke techniques and are close to mastering them.  They will work to improve their times and stamina.  Young middle school.

Group E –  Members in this group have mastered their stroke techniques.  This is a longer practice which will push the swimmers so that they can really feel what competitive swimming is like. Older middle school and high school.

Practice Schedule

Every effort will be made to hold swim practice each weekday; however, threatening weather, extreme cold and technical difficulties sometimes make it necessary to cancel practice. Please check your e-mail for updates before all scheduled practices. We appreciate your patience and understanding of circumstances beyond our control.

K-2 girls will practice T, TH the first week, then M, W the second week and join in with the boys on a day of your choosing.

If you have multiple kids or scheduling conflicts, genders can be mixed…the reason for the split is that we can’t fit ALL of the younger kids in Dolphin pool

FAQs

Does the price include swimming, diving, or both?

The price of registration includes swimming, diving, or both teams.

Does my child have to participate in both swim and dive, or can he choose one sport?

Your child can participate in the sport that he or she chooses. There’s no pressure to compete in both.

How many practices are required?

There are no practice attendance requirements; however, we encourage swimmers and divers who want to compete to attend at least two practices per week.

Is my child required to compete in the swim and dive meets?

All swimmers and divers are encouraged to participate in meets, but it is not a requirement. If your child is tentative about participating in a meet, we encourage you to come to a meet and see how much fun they are!

Does my child need to be a proficient swimmer or diver to join?

If you’re questioning whether your child can swim or dive well enough to join the team, please stop! This is a great place for your child to learn how to swim more confidently. Any new swimmers who are unsure about joining the swim and dive team are encouraged to attend practice during the trial period (the first two weeks) before making a decision.

Is there a deadline to register?

Yes, the deadline to register is June 23.

We are Chapel Hill pool members but not Chapel Hill residents. Can we still get the discount?

Sorry, we only have this discount for OHAC members and Chapel Hill residents.
