Little Dolphins Junior Swim Team
Our Little Dolphins program is very popular and registration fills up every year. It is only for 4-6-year-olds who are not quite ready for the big swim team. They do not swim in meets but have the option to swim in our last home meet in one event.
4-6-year-olds who were swimming some on their own last summer should sign up for the regular team. 4-6-year-olds who were not swimming last summer on their own or are not comfortable in the water should sign up for Little Dolphins. **Since they do not swim in the swim meets their season because Tuesday, May 28th at 8:30 AM. They may not come to any practice before this date and may not attend evening practices as those are reserved for swimmers preparing for the swim meets. If you have any questions about what team your swimmer is suited for, please email [email protected] for clarification.
We are finalizing if we can resume evening practices for missed morning practices, but evening practices will be limited to 15 kids and additional lanes cannot be added to accommodate additional swimmers--there will be a sign-up in May and spots will be on a first-come basis. Please keep this in mind when signing up for the swim team and conflicting camps in June. Evening practices are not meant to be a swimmer's only practice to attend are not a guarantee to be able to attend. Evening practices are meant to be an occasional substitute for missed morning practices. While we do not penalize our swimmers for missing practices, swimmers who attend practices will see better time improvements and will prioritized for swimming in more events during meets.
Parent Volunteer Requirement
As a reminder, like all swim teams, Saddle Creek also has parent volunteer requirements. Swim teams are unlike many other sports where a game can occur with a couple of coaches and a referee but instead meets need approximately 50 volunteers in addition to coaches and a referee to run smoothly. Summer swim team is also a family event where typically all kids within the same family can be on the same team and parents build community during the process. Summer swim is not just a spectator sport--parents who get involved often make friends and get to know their community within and near Saddle Creek--we look forward to seeing our swim team friends each season! If you are concerned about meeting your volunteer requirements during the swim season, please email [email protected] about other ways you can fulfill your requirements--there is a lot of volunteer work before and during the season needed to make our season successful. We are revising our volunteer requirement policy and details will be found in the registration once it is live or here on the website as soon as details are finalized. We promise to work with families to ensure that they are confident that they can meet the minimum requirements. The revision of our volunteer policy is not only to set this season up for success to but to also set up future parent leads for success in the following seasons.
