Since 1991, the Dubuque Area Swimmin’ Hurricanes swim team has offered a year-round competitive swimming program available to all youngsters in the greater Dubuque area. We offer training to the most novice of swimmers starting at a very young age, throughout adolescence and into adulthood. Through personal commitment, qualified coaches, parental support, and community involvement, each swimmer is encouraged to progress to the highest level of their ability.
DASH has expanded into a very successful and popular swim lesson program, and we pride ourselves in offering the highest quality learn to swim program in the area. The lessons are taught by many of our upper level Team DASH members. The skills taught not only instill the love of the water and efficient technique, but also the importance of aquatic safety, especially in a river community.
Our Masters swim program rounds out DASH’s programming by offering aquatic fitness and training to adults. The physical, mental and social benefits of Masters swimming is enjoyed by patrons of all ages and abilities in the Dubuque community.
For the last 26 years, the Greater Dubuque area community has contributed to the growth of DASH programs, which now has led us to the need for more pool space. DASH is partnering with the Dubuque Community School District to expand their pool facility design. This expansion will allow increased community access through DASH programming. DASH’s goal is to raise $1Million to contribute to the DCSD pool expansion.
This pool expansion will significantly impact the community:
> Allow more SwimAmerica lesson programs for our youth.
> Offer competitive swimmers a state of the art facility in which to train.
> Increased city-wide income through the ability to host regional and semi-national swim meets which bring in greater attendance numbers.
> Additional pool space for adult aquatic programs.
By supporting the DASH pool expansion, you ensure the Greater Dubuque community will have state of the art aquatic space. Your support will allow DASH the continued ability to impact past, present and future swimmers for years to come.
