FALLDART SWIMMING WITH AQUADARTS

IMPORTANT - All Falldart practices will begin on Wednesday, August 26 instead of August 24 due to a water issue in Community Park. 

Aquadarts offers fall swimming options for new and Summerdart swimmers at Community Pool.  We will offer 8-week sessions for ages 4-6 (Minidarts) and 6-teens (Falldarts), beginning August 24 through October 16. 

Registration information:

  • Registration is available online only this year at www.aquadarts.org.  It will open on Wednesday July 29 and will remain open until spots are filled.  Wait lists will be generated once a session fills. To register, click here.

LESSONS

Private lessons, which are one-on-one coaching for 30 minute sessions with Aquadart staff, are also available M-Th from 3-3:30 or 3:30-4:00.  Cost per session is $30-35.  Information on how to register for these will be emailed to all Falldart participants.

 

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Regular Falldart practices are M-F.  Minidarts are TWTH. There are no minimum practice or meet requirements.

Falldart practices are concurrent with existing Aquadart practices.  Newer swimmers will be assigned to lanes based on swim skill level, and will have opportunity to advance to more skilled lanes as their skill levels improve. Practice emphasis will follow a low-key, fun philosophy focused on stroke technique improvement and introduction to competitive swimming.

 

Friday Fun Meets, which are optional low-key fun meets (similar to Summerdart meets) will be offered from 4-6 pm on the following dates. There will not be regular practices on these dates except for the Silver group swimmers. Silver swimmers may choose either the meet or practice on these Fridays. Minidart swimmers can also enter these meets. 

  • September 11
  • September 25
  • October 9

Dive and Turn Clinics will be held at practices on all other Fridays at regular practice times for Falldart swimmers.  These clinics will be followed by Friday Fun Day games in the pool.

 

FALL EVENTS

DAVIS FALL CHAMPIONSHIPS: We will host the first annual Davis Fall Championships at Community Pool the weekend of Oct. 17-18.  All fall swimmers are encouraged to enter this meet; more information will be available in the fall.

 

AQUADART FALL KICK OFF BBQ AND POOL PARTY: this fun event will be held on Saturday, September 12 from 3-7 pm at Community Pool.  All Aquadart and Falldart/Minidart swimmers and families are invited to this event.  More details and reservation information will be emailed soon.

 

NEW PARENT INFORMATION MEETING will be held on Tuesday, September 1, from 7-8 pm at the Hallmark Inn in Davis.  We have found this meeting to be very helpful for all new swimming families and hope you will be able to attend. 

 

There will be options to continue after October 17 through the rest of the year and beyond for Falldarts; Minidarts will be offered again beginning in Spring 2016.
