CAN'T MAKE A MEET? Please click here to sign up on the "Cannot Swim" sheet. 

Please sign in the "I Can't Swim Sheet" on SignUpGenius as soon as you know your child won't be available for a meet -- 2 days before the meet.  If you realize less than 2 days before a meet that your swimmer(s) cannot attend, please email Coach Kate immediately . 

Go Dolphins!!!

Swim Lessons

We will post any lesson information for the season when it becomes available. 

Adult Lap Swim

The club will be offering lap swim time daily, with the exception of home meet days, from 6:30PM-7:30PM.  Contact the club for details. 

Swim Team Information

SWIM TEAM is for those swimmers who can swim 2 full lengths in 2 competitive strokes.  It does not have to be pretty or perfect - they just have to be able to get across the pool.  If they aren't ready, consider our Junior Dolphins team.  If you are not certain whether your swimmer belongs on the team or Junior Dolphins, please bring your child between 5:00-5:30pm date TBD, or have your child attend a Junior Dolphin practice, (5:00 - 5:30), date TBD and coaches will assess and advise.  

(Registration for team and Junior Dolphins is the same.)

 Please contact the swim chairs with any questions about swim team at: .
