We strive to promote a positive and fun environment for area swimmers and divers. The Ballwin Blue Dolphins Swim and Dive Team is a recreational team with an emphasis on developing basic competitive skills. Swimmers and divers, ages 5-18 years, may participate on the team. Swim team is NOT a substitute for swim lessons.  In order to provide the best program possible, the number of team members is limited to 250 swimmers and 60 divers for the 2019 season. 

Swim Team Pre-Test - Saturday, May 4, 2019 9:30 a.m.

All new swimmers (including siblings of returning swimmers) age 8 and under are required to participate in a swim test. Young swimmers will be required to swim 25 yards (one length of the pool) unassisted with constant forward movement. The swimmers may not stop and/or grab the wall or lap lane while taking the test.  We do not expect your swimmer to have a perfect stroke. These steps are taken for safety precautions. We want to ensure your swimmer is able to meet the minimum needs for practices and swim meets. If unable to complete the required swim test a full refund will be given. 

Parent Volunteer Requirement

We will be requiring all families to sign up for 3 volunteer shifts. 

Please bring your checkbook for our “check hold” system similar to many other league swim and dive teams.  For each volunteer shift required, the household will be required to write a check worth $50 to the City of Ballwin (3 separate checks).  These checks will be held and only deposited if your volunteer shift is not fulfilled.  After each volunteer shift is fulfilled, one of your checks will be returned at your request or destroyed.  

Blue Dolphin Warm Up

During the off season we offer practices on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:45 - 6:30 p.m.  A coach will put you through drills and conditioning to ensure you're ready to go when summer finally arrives. Cost is VIP $52, Reg $65 Reg for each session. Session dates are March 26- April 18 and April 23- May 16.  For more information please contact Liz Renaud at (636) 207-2327. Register online or in person at The Pointe at Ballwin Commons.
