The 2020 Zena Sundevils are anticipating another exciting swim season after our 2nd place finish in 2019! We hope to see our team grow even larger this year as we take on area swim clubs from New Paltz, Red Hook, and more! We invite parents who think their children might be ready to join the team to sign up. If your child is 5 years old or older, and is able to swim across the pool unassisted, they may be ready to be a Sundevil!
Our summer league has introduced countless families to friendly, yet competitive, swimming and has helped many to develop a lifelong passion for the sport. The team is one of eight teams in the local DUSO League (Dutchess and Ulster Swim Organization www.duso.org). The swim team season is approx. 6 weeks long and culminates with a championship meet.
Practice is held every weekday morning once schools are closed for the summer. There are 2 sessions: older swimmers (typically 13+) practice from 7:30 to 9:00 am followed by the younger groups (typically 12 years and younger) from 9:00 to 10:00 am. NEW in 2020, we are looking to add a few weekly night practices so please stay tuned.
Our coaches are committed to providing a safe, nurturing environment where young people develop friendships and pursue excellence in an activity that encourages fitness, fun, and being part of a team. We are known across the league for showcasing our team spirit! We have youngsters that can barely swim the length of the pool who enjoy the camaraderie of this team just as much as our competitive year-round swimmers enjoy competing for medals and accolades. The season includes exciting events centered around family. Our coaches include “fun days” into the swim season with pool games, a pasta pep rally, a bonfire, an award night, and much more...
Parent involvement is required to support all it takes to makes our swim team possible!
