2021 Swim Season Details

The board of the Durham Summer Swim League (DSSL) voted to proceed with a 2021 swim season. Eno Valley will participate in the 2021 DSSL swim league. We intend to have practices and swim meets and participating youth will receive Eno Valley gear as part of the participating fees.

Additionally, Eno Valley will offer a "Little Orcas" team for "new" swimmers. Little Orcas are for developing team members - not swim lessons. (Private swim lessons are available but are not part of the swim team.) The idea behind Little Orcas is that the child can swim, but not all the way across the pool; they want to be on the team, but they need extra help before being able to handle competition. On meet days, they will compete with a coach or older swimmer in the pool to assist them and once they pass Coach Derby’s expectations, they will graduate to the big team.

Registration for the swim team is still open! REGISTER NOW!

Registration for Little Orcas is full.  Please consider private swim lessons for your child if you did not secure a spot on Little Orcas.

Practices will begin the week of May 17th and the virtual meet schedule is posted. What will a virtual meet look like? We will swim against ourselves and plug in our times while the other team does the same. It will be fast-paced for the kids, but that will mean it should be over in almost half the time as a regular meet. The coaches are already putting their heads together to figure out ways to make it just as fun as competing against a team that is physically present with us.

Please make sure you get added to our swim team email list by sending an email to [email protected]. Much more detail about the swim team and Little Orcas is and will be shared via email.

Please monitor this website for more information on the 2021 season as plans to safely compete this summer are decided!
