The Dominion Hills Swim & Dive Team offers DHARA pool members between the ages of 6 and 18 the opportunity to compete against athletes from other Northern Virginia pools in the Northern Virginia Swim League (NVSL), one of the oldest and largest youth sports leagues in the country. There are lots of good reasons to join the teams.
The athletes love the teams because they get to make lots of new friends, participate in pep rallies, improve their strokes and dives, cheer on their team mates, travel all over Northern Virginia checking out other team's pools, wear cool swim suits, get up early in the morning to practice, eat donuts and pancakes, take home an award at the end of the season, and really enjoy being part of a team.
Parents love the swim and dive team because they get to know other pool members, share in their child's success, get up at the crack of dawn to drink coffee by the pool during practice, enjoy sitting in the hot sun cheering on the team at meets (or alternately sitting behind the concession stand cheering while selling pizza & burgers), travel to parts of Northern Virginia they never knew existed, and really enjoy the team experience.
The Legend of the Warriors
The team is named for the young, athletic members of the Indian tribes who in the past roamed this area. They would be called by Chief Powhatan to meet periodically at the natural spring currently enclosed in a spring house in the valley at the rear of the Dominion Hills’ property. The spring appears on the first maps of the area. Dominion Hills Warriors draw their strength from a long line of warriors, and their speed from the “fast water” of the spring.
