Summerdarts

 

Summerdarts, offered by the Davis Aquadarts, is an eight-week summer swim team for children ages five through teens.  Swim practices emphasize the introduction and improvement of stroke skills, water fitness, water games, and the basic rules of competition in a fun atmosphere.  Hour-long practices are offered M-F with no mandatory attendance requirements.

Some practice sessions offer workouts specifically for teens that are designed to improve overall fitness and swimming techniques in a fun, social setting geared to their age group. 

Minidarts: Younger swimmers ages 4-5 can join our Minidarts program. 30-minute sessions are held at Community Pool on T-W-TH from June 24-July 31. Coaches work with children in small groups, teaching them swim skills and engaging them in fun swim games.
