South Des Moines Swimming (SDMS) is for youth competitive swimmers.
The ages range from 5-18 years old. Athletes compete in swim meets in two seasons, winter and summer. There is a SDMS Championship meet at the end of each as well. The swimmers will race against others in their own age category to ensure the races are fair and competitive. Because this is a competitive team, the athlete must be able to swim 25 yards (one length) without stopping.
SDMS club swimming offers the chance for young athletes to learn all four strokes, legal competition turns, proper starts & finishes, sport rules and be part of a team.
Practices are held at Lincoln High School. The practices are divided by skill level and take place at different times and days of the week. Because the club team continues to grow, this helps keep a smaller number of swimmers in a lane. Plus, it allows the coaches to focus more individually on each child.
