    Greetings Cary Park Sea Dragon (CPSD) Families!

    March is nearly upon us and it’s time for Sea Dragons to complete two registrations: pool and swim team!

    All Sea Dragon Swim Families must register with the Cary Park Swim Club. Early Bird Pool Registration ends on Friday, March 15th and fees significantly increase after that date. To save money, families must be registered and paid by March 15th; non-Cary Park Families must have their check received by March 15th. For more information about Cary Park Swim Club pool registration, please CLICK HERE.

    The Cary Park Sea Dragon team registration is open! Please register for the team on the Swimtopia team website. Your family can also order team t-shirts, medals, and photos at registration too! For complete team registration information, please CLICK HERE.

    Pre-season swim lessons and clinics are offered by local swim teams and schools before the first CPSD practice and swim evaluations (Monday, May 13th). Year-round swim teams (MOR, RSA, TAC, etc.) offer swim lessons, as well as swim schools and fitness centers (YMCA, UNC Wellness, PhD Swim School, Triangle Swim School, Aqua-tots, Goldfish Swim School, etc.). Swim team evaluations are designed to assess the current skill level of each swimmer; they are not lessons.

    In-season swim lessons will be offered by CPSD coaches ONLY to CPSD swim team members starting when the Cary Park Pool opens (Saturday, May 11th). Last year’s procedures will apply to team member lessons this summer. For non-swim team Cary Park Swim Club members (ex. siblings that are not on the team), lesson information will be forthcoming once finalized by the new pool management company. For pre- and in-season swim lesson information, please CLICK HERE.

    The 2024 dual meet schedule has been finalized; championship meets are still tentative. Check out the meet and event schedule and subscribe to the Sea Dragon Team Google Calendar by clicking HERE. Our first team fundraiser event will be Monday, May 20th at Mod Pizza at Amberly Place.

    Thanks to our current 2024 sponsors: Eyecare For You, North Carolina Dermatology Associates, and Si Young Park, CPA.
