Scholarship applications are available. There is a 3rd child discount for all families (same household) with 3 or more children; the cost is half of the regular fee for the third and any subsequent children. Discounts also apply for families with 3 or more children in both Falldarts and Swim School. The discount is applied to the swimmer with the lowest fees. You must pay the full amount for all children when applying; we will refund you the difference after registration. 

 

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

  •      Falldart practices are offered on Monday through Friday.  There are no mandatory practice requirements; we recommend swimming 3/week.
  •      Swimmers in Falldarts Bronze and Silver will be incorporated into our regular Aquadart groups, and will be placed in lanes based on swim level and age.  The primary emphasis of each practice is teaching all competitive swim strokes, starts and turns.  Swimmers will be swimming more laps than during Summerdarts to begin building endurance instead of doing Over-Unders for endurance.
  •       Falldarts can opt for either 8 week or full quarter sessions.  8-week swimmers can decide to continue into November and beyond if space on a space-available basis.
  •       Falldarts opting for the Bronze 5:00-5:45 session which is only offered for 8 weeks can switch to the Option 1 3:15-4:00 Bronze after 10/20 if they wish for a full quarter option.  
  •       There are other options for swimmers ages 11 through teens who can swim 100 yds of freestyle and backstroke comfortably; email davissummerdarts@gmail.com for more information. 
  •       Private lessons will be available; cost is $30 for 30 minutes.  You can find info on this on the Dart Swim School page.  

SWIM MEETS

  •        FRIDAY FUN MEETS, which are optional low-key fun meets (similar to Summerdart meets) will be offered from 4-6 pm on some Fridays through the fall. Swimmers in levels Green, Blue and Purple who can swim freestyle and backstroke comfortably in deep pool may attend Friday Fun Meets. There are no fees for these meets.
  •        DAVIS FALL INVITATIONAL: Aquadarts hosts an annual fall meet at Arroyo Pool on Sept. 15-17.  All Falldart swimmers in Bronze and Silver should attend; fees are included in registration fees. We will send out information in late August on how to register for this meet.
  •        DAVIS FALL CHAMPIONSHIPS: We will host our annual Davis Fall Championships at Community Pool on October 21.  All Falldart swimmers should attend. 

 

There will be a New Parent Meeting for parents of swimmers in Falldarts Bronze and Silver, held on Thursday August 31 from 7-8:30 pm, location TBA. We’ve found this meeting is helpful for all families new to Aquadarts – we go over such things as swim meet options, ordering swim gear (suits, parkas…), team activities, parent volunteering, and much more.  This is not a meeting for parents of swimmers in Swim School.
