2018 Summer Swim Season
Donaldson Run Swim Team is excited to kick-off the 2018 swim season! We are delighted that Phil Caslavka and MJ Ulrich are returning as our Thunderbolts coaches! We hope to repeat our success from last season while continuing to promote spirit, motivation, and technical swim expertise at Donaldson Run.
The 2018 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.
The DR team swim suit can be purchased at Sport Fair, 5010 Lee Hwy, Arlington, VA 22207 (just ask for the "DR team suit") .
Practice for our 7 and older swimmers will begin on May 14th.
We'd like to invite our Thundersquad (6 and under swimmers) to begin Tuesday, May 29th 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 25th. Developmental swimmers can be assessed during the week of May 29th 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.
