The Haines Dolphins Swim Team was organized in 1997 by a group of dedicated volunteers. Our first year we sent one swimmer to Junior Olympics. Seven years later we sent our first swimmer to Nationals and had 13 qualifiers for Junior Olympics. We have grown to be one of the largest youth sports organization in Haines, operating from September through April every year.

Our swimmers have brought home numerous High Point Awards, Percentage of Best Times awards, and Most Points Per Swimmer awards in recent years. We've developed a reputation in the Alaska swimming community for having a small, high-quality team.

Swim Groups

The Dolphins Swim Team is divided into groups based on skill level and experience. Which swimmer swims in which squad will be determined by the coaching staff. To find out more about each group visit the Swim Groups tab above.


Typically, the younger swimmers swim for about an hour, intermediate swimmers swim for about an hour and a half and experienced swimmers for 2 hours. To find out more specific information about each groups practice schedule visit the Swim Groups tab above.
