Children ages 4 to 18 are welcome to join our team. Their age as of May 31 st determines their “league age.” No previous swim team experience is necessary. We provide a “Boot Camp,” which runs from May 22 nd – June 1 st , designed to introduce our tiniest team members (as young as 4) to the pool. We do recommend that they are willing and able to put their face in the water.

We’re excited to announce that Alexa (Crouch) Koch will be the CRA head coach this year.  Alexa has an extensive history with our CRA Dolphins, having first swum on the team and then working as an assistant coach with Barbara Miller for 9 years. She has also served as an assistant coach with the Chester YMCA winter swim team for 5 years and was promoted to the head coach there in 2014.

Alexa’s primary goals are to teach a love of the sport of swimming while also teaching water safety. Her coaching philosophy is to teach technique first and then speed will follow. She takes pride in teaching the art of proper technique as well as running fun but challenging practices.
