Donner Swim Club
Donner Swim Club is a competitive swim program affiliated with USA Swimming and Indiana Swimming. We provide the greater Columbus community with the opportunity to participate in a formal, structured swimming program designed to meet the needs of young people.
We are looking to put together an Officials clinic in September or October. Location could be Bartholomew County Library or closer to Seymour and Bedford, depending on the response.
So, please recruit now, and we will send updates closer to September.
Following the elections at the annual banquet, we have two open board positions, Concessions and Hospitality. We are looking for interested folks to take on responsibility for each of these. Contact the Donner Board for more information.
You can sign up your swimmer for a meet using the active.com system. There is a link to that system on the Meet Signup page. Simply click on the link to be taken directly to the Donner Swim Club area. There you will see a list of the meets that you are currently able to sign up for. Click on the "Respond Now" button to enter the system and begin the signup process. You will need to know your active.com credentials to log on.
If you don't see a meet you are interested in, then registration is not open for us at this time. Either check back later or contact DSC for further clarification.

We have had an exciting week at the Phillips 66 National Championships, highlighted by Katie Ledecky’s world record in the 400m freestyle. While our eyes have been focused on the pool, we occasionally turn around and look at what’s going on outside the pool. Here are a few of the promotional highlights of the week.
John Lohn built quite a name for himself working at Swimming World Magazine, and working for its website. Now at SwimVortex, Lohn takes a look back at Nationals, and ahead to the future, in this week’s 20 Question Tuesday.
When it comes to coaching open water swimming, Catherine Vogt draws several comparisons to auto racing.
