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.
Spirit wear order forms and car sticker order forms are available at North pool. Orders are due in pool office 10/03/14. Carrie H. will pass out forms to AGE and AGD.
Due to changes with the Active/Hy-tek meet sign-up system, we now have to use an alternative method to sign up for meets. This is a temporary replacement of the Active/Hy-tek meet sign-up, which is currently unavailable due to major upgrades.
Below are the items required for sign-up for the first 3 meets. These were set based on entry acceptance by other teams. Deadlines are fast approaching.
The following meet sign-up is for Donner Swim Club members only. Please complete and submit one form for each swimmer you are requesting meet entry. For a swimmer to compete in a meet, they must have paid their USA registration fee to Donner, and have proof of birthdate on file. Birth certificates need only be submitted once.
Below is the meet, meet date, closing day/time for meet sign-up, and link to the meet events.

Just 2 years ago, I started swimming competitive at a club. Since then, I've improved vastly. Now, entering my third year, I have one concern: Can you give some advice on ideal eating? What I want to know are good foods and correct size portions. This way, I can cut out unneeded food.
Headlined by world record-holders Missy Franklin (Centennial, Colo.), Katie Ledecky (Bethesda, Md.), Ryan Lochte (Daytona Beach, Fla.) and Michael Phelps (Baltimore, Md.), USA Swimming today announced the 2014-15 USA Swimming National Team roster.
