Ladera Dolphins Info dated April 2, 2021

Ladera Dolphins 2021

Hi All,

Jane and I have met and discussed plans for the 2021 Dolphins Season.  We are very excited to announce that we are going to have swim team this summer and we will be accepting Dolphins ages 5-18 on the swim team.  A swimmer must turn 5 before June 15, 2021.

In order for us to be able to craft the particulars, we need to first gauge how much interest there is in being on this year’s team. 

This is what we know so far:

-We will have swim team.

-Swim team will begin the week of June 21st and end no later than July 31st, which will depend on whether or not there is a championship meet.

-ALL meets will be virtual.  We will have scheduled meets against other clubs and yet we will never leave our “home” pool.  We will run a meet at our pool while the other team runs a meet at their pool and the times will be coordinated to determine places and winners.

-We will be running 2 or 3 sessions a day, depending on interest. There will be one session from 8:45-9:45 in the morning and one or two sessions in the early evening.  (we have previously run afternoon sessions at 5 and 6). If we have a large interest, we may stagger sessions to be Mon/Wed/Fri and Tues/Thurs/Sat for the morning session and we will announce the afternoon times when we have a better idea.

-We will be accepting up to 24 kids per session, meaning there could be as many as 4 kids to a lane.  We will stagger kids so that they are not bunched up at either end. If you are not comfortable with 4 kids to a lane, please do not register your child for swim team.

-Kids will need to wear masks as they enter and leave the pool, unless county and state guidelines relax those rules.

-We will enforce every social distancing guideline as is practical and recommended for a swim team.

-Our swim team rates will not increase from prior years. $285 for the first swimmer, $245 for the second swimmer, $220 for 3rd and 4th swimmers in the same family.

-You MUST be an LRD member to be on the Ladera Dolphins Swim Team.

We are doing things a little out of order this year.  Please go to https://ladera.swimtopia.com/ and register for swim team. No fees will be collected at this time.  Once we know what sessions will look like we will ask you to register and pay fees. Please register by April 15th so we can start the 2021 season on time!

We are all looking forward to seeing the Dolphins back in the LRD pool this year!
