Program Description and Practice Options: 

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 introduction to competition in a fun atmosphere.  Hour-long practices are offered M-F with no mandatory attendance requirements. Practices are geared for swimmers of all ability levels, from novice to experienced. Optional swim meets will be held on weekends and some evenings throughout the summer. We also offer DART Fit, which offers fitness/dryland exercise and swimming in a 1.25 hour daily practice for children ages 9-15. 

Minidarts: Younger swimmers ages 4-6 can join our Minidarts program. 30-minute sessions are held at Community Pool on T-W-TH. Coaches work with children in small groups, teaching them swim skills and the four swim strokes, engage them in fun swim games, and introduce them to swim team and swim meets. Optional swim meets are offered.

Swim and Sport Camps offered by Davis Aquadarts and Summerdarts

Enjoy Summerdarts, sports and games, swimming, and more at our DART Camp at Community Pool.  This camp is for children ages 6-12.  Each day includes a swim team practice coached by DART staff, a sport offering (options vary by week), art and craft activities, and free swim at Community Pool. There are six one-week sessions offered; each session is Monday through Friday from 9am to 1 pm.  Children can sign up for one session or multiple sessions. Additionally, if parents need a full day offering, we are partnering with Davis Kids Klub, who offer full day programs for children in the summer at North Davis Elementary.

 
OTHER SUMMERDART AND MINIDART INFORMATION

 

EVALUATIONS

All Summerdart swimmers (new or returning) ages 10 and younger must have a swim evaluation to facilitate proper group placement within their workout time and to determine readiness for the program. Evaluations will be held May 12,14 and 15 at Civic Center Pool. At these evaluations, swimmers must demonstrate the following skills to be eligible for Summerdarts:

  • Familiarity of freestyle (ability to swim 15 feet, with breathing, unaided)
  • Familiarity of backstroke (ability to swim 15 feet, unaided)
  • Bobs (rhythmic breathing)
  • Kicking with a kickboard
  • Comfort of swimming in all areas/depths of water

Minidarts do not do evaluations but must meet the following minimum skills to participate:  

  • Comfortable in the water
  • Bobbing (rhythmically breathing with face in and out of the water while standing in water or holding on to side)
  • Willing to put face in the water and float comfortably
  • Ability to take one or more breaths while floating and/or kicking with a kickboard
  • Willing to attempt floating on back

Swimmers who do not meet the minimum swim skill levels will receive a full refund. 

Evaluations take about five minutes and are done on a drop-in basis at Civic Pool. You do not need to sign up for a time; you can choose to come to one of the following sessions:

Saturday May 12
