We are excited to announce the return of the DST Pre-Team this season. The pre-team is for swimmers who are not yet able to swim the length of the pool, but are close to achieving that goal. Swimmers should be able to swim at least half the length of the pool using some type of freestyle, be able to kick the full length of the pool using a kickboard, and be comfortable in the water.
All swimmers who are new to the team will be evaluated by the coaching staff for readiness for the team during the first weekend of practice (June 4 & 5) and to determine final practice group placement.
We are thrilled to welcome back Devin Neil, who will be serving as our Head Coach this season. Joining him will be Assistant Coaches Stephen Henderson and Sophia Keller, as well as Junior Coaches Jack Deppe and Chloe Patel.
Coach Devin and Coach Stephen bring many years of competitive swimming and coaching experience to the team, and we are very excited they are returning this season!
