2020 Swim & Dive Season Overview

Ben Franklin Swim Club is the proud home to champion swim and dive teams for children 5 to 18 years old.  We continue to show great success and participation within the Princeton Area Swimming and Diving Association (PASDA).  For 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, PASDA has cancelled Swim & Dive competitions however we are working on creating virtual swim/dive meets.  More to come at the parent meeting.

There will be a parent meeting on June 22nd from 5 PM to 6 PM.  Please register your children prior to the parent meeting so we can focus on discussions about how we will proceed with a swim and dive season.  No one will be allowed to swim or dive until registered and paid in full.   If you miss this meeting and are still interested in Swim & Dive, please contact Michelle Morris via the contact form.  We are again accepting non-member applications to join our teams and have 20 participant slots.  Please share the information with anyone whom may be interested.

If you have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to contact our VP, Swim and Dive Michelle Morris, via the contact form.

​Junior Dolphin Program

We are excited to offer the Junior Dolphin program this summer.  The children will be evaluated at the first practice they attend in order to place them appropriately.  If your child comfortably places their face in the water and is able to stream line off side of pool, but they are not yet able to swim a lap of the pool without assistance then the Junior Dolphin program is  perfect for them!   This program will also run M-F, but only 45 minutes a day.  The schedule information for this upcoming season will all be discussed at the respective parent meetings.
