TDC Breakers Swim Team

Swim Team

Our junior Olympic size swimming pool is home to our championship swim team, the TDC Breakers. Boasting nearly 150 young swimmers every year, the swim team provides an opportunity for your children to compete against others in an atmosphere of fair play, good sportsmanship, and safety. In addition to daily practices and six meets, the Breakers also host numerous social events during their season including float night, dive in movies, an ice cream social, and an end of year awards banquet. Practices begin immediately following Memorial Day with the official season beginning after school gets out in mid-June. Swimmers are divided into categories by age as outlined below beginning with the Mini Mites at age five. TDC typically has one head coach and two assistant coaches, all of whom offer individual lessons at very reasonable rates. Allow your children the opportunity to exercise and learn a lifelong skill while forging new friendships and having fun!



Ella Ackerman

Hey Breakers! My name is Ella Ackerman and I am a rising Junior at Virginia Commonwealth University, studying health science on the Pre-PT track. I have been swimming with The Dominion Club since I was five years old and have coached for the past four summers. This will be my second year as Head Coach and I’m so excited to continue watching all of the swimmers improve and have fun this summer!
After swimming competitively for 10 years, I have now discovered my love for helping others to learn and improve their swimming skills. I’m looking forward to helping the breakers reach their full potential this season! I can’t wait to have another great year of swimming and coaching, go Breakers!


Abby Russell

Hey Breakers! My name is Abby Russell and I am finishing up my first year at Boston College. I have been swimming for The Breakers since I was 9, and I cannot wait to begin my first year of coaching. Growing up, I swam for NOVA for 9 years and J.R. Tucker High School for 4 years.
At BC, I am a nursing major with a minor in psychology and I also swim on their Varsity Women’s Team. I love teaching swim lessons, so I cannot wait to meet all of you and work with a team that I call my family. We are going to have a great summer together! Go Breakers!
