1st Place at SSSC Winter Swim Conference –
The Lemont Dolphins Swim Team is a competitive swim program dedicated to teaching youth to swim and develop skills for competition on the local and Regional level. The Dolphins are committed tosupporting all swimmers at every level of competition, from dual meets to Championship Level competitions. The team is open to anyone ages 6-18 who can swim at least one length of the pool (25 yards).
The coaching staff will decide group placement based on the individual swimmer’s age and swimming ability. Dolphins Team members will be instructed on proper stroke mechanics, nutrition, and training practices. Through our program, swimmers are also encouraged to develop those personal qualities such as discipline, self-confidence, cooperativeness, and the ability to identify and work towards goals that will help them achieve success in all aspects of life. The team participates in both dual meets as part of the West Suburban Swim Conference (WSSC) and has the option to register with USA Swimming (USA) and swim in USA sanctioned meets as well. Participation in USA meets are optional and up to the individual swimmer.
Lemont Dolphins Swim Team – Fall/Winter 2012-2013 - (Ages 6 – 18)
As this is a SWIM TEAM, practices will be run to improve technique, not to teach strokes. All participants should be comfortable in deep water and have the ability to swim one length of the pool freestyle and backstroke without stopping. EVERYONE will be given the opportunity to swim in meets. Rates include an annual USA Swimming Registration fee of $60.00. Age of swimmer is determined by the swimmers age on March 15, 2012. We will have different groups and levels in the 2012 Winter Season. Each group will still be basically the same, however the Coaching staff has the right to move swimmers between groups to better suit the swimmer.
Mandatory Parent Meeting: September 13th.
- White Team: Ages 6-10 – Code: 520201-A1 Swimmers with a limited competitive swim experience, this group will be primarily 8 & unders, but will include some 9-10’s that need more competitive stroke work.
