Team Philosophy
It is the mission of the Dearborn Dolphins (DRD) competitive swimming program to help develop goal oriented, ambitious, and dedicated student athletes. Our objective is to provide a foundation for success that will carry with the individual for his/her entire life. We encourage our swimmers to set high standards and expectations for themselves - to face challenges head on and learn to overcome adversity. This requires not only the physical ability, but also the mindset that, "Anything you can conceive of and believe in, you can ACHIEVE!" Through sport, an athlete may gain an understanding of the value of hard work, self-confidence, respect, team comradery, and sportsmanship. One may even find lasting friendships in the fiercest of rivals. These are the principles we believe in.

Our team is structured to accommodate all of the various ability levels found in competitive swimming- from young age group swimmers just starting off and working to refine each of the four competitive strokes (butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke, and freestyle), to the national level qualifier. Therefore, our team is structured into various learning and training groups, where the individual athlete may focus on his/her individual needs and what is required for them to move on to the next level.

Our bottom line is swimming fast, racing and training "smart", recognizing the lessons learned, and enjoying the experiences we share each day.
