About Us

The Dolphin-Laser’s have a rich history of  swimming excellence. The Dolphins were founded in 1967 at the Little Rock Racquet Club and the Lasers were founded in 1992 at the Little Rock Athletic Club.  In 2007 they merged to become one of the largest and fastest teams in Arkansas. In the 90's they added training sites in Jacksonville, Sherwood and UALR. In  2009 they added a training site in Cabot. The team has over a 40 year tradition of providing quality competitive swimming  to the State of Arkansas. Swimmers have ranked from State Champions to Olympic Gold Medalist.  Besides our swimmers’ accomplishments in the pool, we are proud of their academic performances and community service.  The team has won may State Championship Titles and State High Point winners over the years.
