2017 Season
General Information
In addition to a clean pool, friendly guards, and well-planned social events, CSCSC offers our community a thriving swim-team. The Cape St. Claire Dolphins Swim Team is a competitive swimming program that teaches the principles of teamwork and good sportsmanship, promotes a love for the sport, and advances aquatic skills. Children ages 6 through 18 who can swim one length of the pool, unaided, are eligible to join the swim team. The children receive endurance training, stroke refinement instruction, and improve significantly over the season.

The CSC Dolphins compete in the Greater Annapolis Swim League. Twenty local teams in four divisions comprise the Greater Annapolis Swim League (GASL). Division placement is determined by the previous year’s performance. Currently, CSC Dolphins occupy a spot in the Severn (2nd) division.

The season begins right after Memorial Day and ends the fourth week in July. Practices are held every weekday, and meets take place on Saturday mornings.

Coaching Staff
Our staff is looking forward to another fun and instructional season, working with parents, swimmers, and officials toward setting and meeting goals both in and out of the pool.

Our Head Coach Kristin Watson has been involved in competitive swimming since the age of five. She swam for NBAC, and Wingate University, where she became an Assistant Coach for the Varsity Swim Teams. Kristin is looking forward to her sixth summer coaching the Dolphins, Kristin will also lead our swim lessons this summer.

Registration Information
Please read all the information on this page prior to registering your child.

In the past few years the team has become so popular that space fills up fast. In order to give first chance to returning swimmers and club members we conduct an early on-line registration. Online registration for returning swimmers and club members in good standing will begin April 1 through April 9. Beginning April 10 we will fill any remaining spaces on a first come first served basis until the team is full. We have limited practice space and time in the pool and there is a limit on the number of swimmers the team can hold. Once the team is full we will close registration and will no longer accept any additional swimmers.

A link to our online registration form can be found at the bottom of this page.

Eligibility
Swimmers must be 18 or younger on June 1 of 2017. All swimmers regardless of age must be able to jump or dive into the deep end of the pool and do something that looks like freestyle the length of the pool before joining the team. If a swimmer is unable to do this or requires the full attention of a coach in order to safely swim in the pool they will be removed from the team without a refund.

Parent Commitment
All parents must work a minimum of THREE swim team jobs and the Championship meets each of your children attend. Please make sure that you and your chil(ren) are comfortable with these requirements before signing up.

Team Fees
The team fee is $155 for CSCSC members and $175 for non-members. The team fee includes AAU athlete insurance, a team suit, a team cap and a team t-shirt. A LATE FEE of $15 will be added to all registrations after April 23rd.

Championship fees will be $2 per event per swimmer (limit three events) and will be collected prior to the Championship meets in July.

Once the team has filled and we have completed registration we will not refund any registration fees for any reason.

The member discount of $20 will be extended to all members in good standing and to all lessees who have a paid lease contract for the 2017 season at the time of registration. No fees will be refunded to those who lease after registration.

Please register by April 23rd. After April 23rd a late fee of $15 will be added to the registration fees.

Pre-Competitive Swim Team
This program is designed for young future Dolphin swimmers who need an introduction to team practice swimming in order to take the next step to the Dolphins Competitive Swim Team.

Participants must be 7 or 8-years-old on June 1, 2017 and must be able to swim 25 yards, unaided, without stopping or grabbing the side of the pool. This program is meant to give a child who may be unsure about joining the team a chance to give it a try. PC Team is a great way to try out the swim team without the full commitment and at a lower cost.
