Everyone is talking about Dad’s Club.
Find out why. Join tryDad’s.
tryDad’s gives young swimmers an opportunity to train with our competitive swim team, alongside our best swimmers and in the care of coaches certified by USA Swimming. What better way to get a taste of this beautiful sport before committing to a full season of practice and competition!
The program goes from July 7th – August 1st, and it costs $130 per swimmer (Senior $200).
The first step is to schedule an evaluation by one of our coaches in order to determine which training group your swimmer(s) will best fit in. You can sign up for an evaluation here. Once evaluated, you can register your swimmer(s) here.
Please email coach Aguilar directly for additional evaluation times. Coachrey@dadsclub-swimteam.com
Swimmers must be 6 & up in age
Training sessions by group, as determined during evaluation:
6 decades ago, it was the vision and drive of neighborhood families, the original 'Dads', that eventually led to a nationally recognized swimming program. 30 years later, it was head coach Richard Quick, he of Olympic coaching fame, who was the force behind the fundraising and construction of the current 50m pool. And now it was again a small group of determined individuals who would not allow the Dad's Club to perish when operations became severely impacted by the widening of I-10. Instead, the Dad's Club stands strong again with a new pool to serve the local community during the summer and to augment its aquatic services throughout the year.
The grand opening of the new pool took place on May 10, 2014. In the presence of Mayor Tom Ramsey, City of Spring Valley Village, the Dad's Club was honored to have Mrs Joan Spillane Postma cut the ribbon. Mrs Postma was a swimmer at the early Dad's Club and became its first Gold Medalist during the 1960 Olympic Games in Rome. Recently, she was instrumental in getting the Dad's Club recognized by the Texas Swimming & Diving Hall of Fame.
As soon as opening festivities were concluded, it was the kids' turn to test the new waters. Judging by their smiles and by the long lines formed at the diving board and Lilly pads, it became quickly clear how enthusiastically they approved of the new pool!
