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.
Mark your calendars!
DSC will be hosting both winter and summer Divisionals. The dates are March 6-8 and August 1-2, 2015.
We will need all-hands-on-deck for both of these important meets to be successful.
January Winter invite volunteer sign up forms are posted on the board at the North Pool. Please consider volunteering.
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.
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.

I've been swimming for a while now and I'm towards the front of the age group when I swim, but whenever we do kick sets, I have to go to the slowest interval. It frustrates me so much! I try really hard but I never get faster, can you give me some tips?
