2017 Summer Swim Season
Donaldson Run Swim Team is excited to kick-off the 2017 swim season! We are delighted that Phil Caslavka is returning as Head Coach of the Thunderbolts! We hope to build on our experience last season and promote spirit, motivation, and technical swim expertise at Donaldson Run.
The 2017 season promises to be an exciting year, and we invite every Donaldson Run member, ages 5 to 18 years old, who is willing and able to swim the length of the pool to join the team.
Registration for Donaldson Run swimmers will begin on March 1 on-line at 2017 DR SWIM REGISTRATION.
The DR team swim suit can be purchased at Sport Fair, 5010 Lee Hwy, Arlington, VA 22207 (just ask for the "DR team suit") OR at the Ice Cream Social on Saturday, May 13th from 4-6 pm.
Order your DR apparel today! The store will be open until May 27th, get your DR stuff right away including personalized caps, pinnies, PJ pants (for those chilly early morning practices) and shorts. Follow the link below:
We are also super excited to bring a new item to you this summer! DR TOWELS!!! Imagine the pool deck covered with these fun towels this summer! Order now by filling out the following spreadsheet. All orders are due May 1st! Payment will be due once the towels arrive in the form of cash or check made payable to DRRA. Please follow the link below:
Practice for our 7 and older swimmers will begin on May 15th.
We'd like to invite our Thundersquad (6 and under swimmers) to begin Monday, May 30th from 5-6pm. Developmental swimmers hoping to join the Thundersquad must be able to swim 25 meters unassisted. For those swimmers close to completing 25 meters unassisted, we will be offering a Thundersquad Prep Team which, for safety reasons, will begin practice on June 26th. Developmental swimmers can be assessed during the week of May 30th to determine if they are eligible to participate on the Thundersquad or Thundersquad Prep Team. [Note: Thundersquad swimmers can participate in Monday night B-meets. If Thundersquad Prep Team swimmers progress during the summer, they can participate in Monday night B-meets.]
Morning practices will begin once school is out. There will be no afternoon practices during the summer.
Please see the menu link "Practice" for additional details.
