Run Swim Team is excited to kick-off the 2016 swim season! We are
delighted that Phil Caslavka is returning as Head Coach of the Thunderbolts
and excited to welcome new Assistant Coaches: Andrea Fleckenstein, Bryan Meade, Jack Storrs and Amanda Tarkenton!
We hope to build on our experience last season and promote spirit,
motivation, and technical swim expertise at Donaldson Run.
The 2016 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. Donaldson Run will compete in Division II this summer.
Registration for Donaldson Run swimmers will begin on March 1 on-line at https://donaldsonrun.swimtopia.com. The cost will be $150 for the first swimmer, $145 for the second swimmer, and $140 for the third and each additional swimmer.

Practice for our 7 and older swimmers began on May 9th.
We'd like to invite our Thundersquad (6 and under swimmers) to begin Monday, May 23rd 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 27th. Developmental swimmers can be assessed during the week of May 23rd 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 details on the Spring and Summer practice schedule at the "Practice" tab.
