Hawks News · Update on Aquatic Programming at DT Natatorium

With the closure of school buildings in Decatur Township, all aquatic programming has been suspended until at least April 6th, 2020. For our programming, this closure comes at the conclusion of school and club seasons and is a natural breaking point between our Fall/Winter programming and the start of our Spring/Summer programs. For our Adult Lap Swim participants, we will look to reopen our lap swims when the building reopens to students. 


The DMS and DCHS end of season awards programs will be rescheduled accordingly as we get closer to the reopening of the buildings. Emails will be sent to all participants and families with information when it becomes available.


Swim lessons were scheduled to begin on Tuesday, March 31st. This session of lessons will be cancelled. Coach Grace will be in contact with families that are registered for this session of lessons to discuss rescheduling children to a new session or issue a refund. The next session of swim lessons will be tentatively scheduled to begin Tuesday, April 28th. The deadline to register for this session of lessons will be on Friday, April 10th. 


For our swim club, we will follow the recommendation of USA Swimming and suspend all swim team programming and events for at least thirty (30) days. This will include Age Group, Senior, and Technique and Fitness practices scheduled between now and April 12th. Our tentative starting schedule for the Long Course season will be as follows:


  • Senior Group, including current 8th grade DMS students, will begin practices on Monday, April 13th. 
  • Age Group 1 & 2 Groups will begin practices on Monday, April 20th. 
  • Technique and Fitness Group will restart practices the 2nd week of May. 


Registration for the Long Course season for the swim club will be pushed back to late March to allow adjustments in the starting schedule based on updates received from the township. Emails to families will follow when registration becomes available on the website.
