Quincy Family YMCA Dolphin swim
team is a year-round competitive swim team for boys and girls ages
5-21. Dolphins compete in YMCA meets and USA Swimming
The name “Dolphins” is
in loving appreciation of Dick Chapin. Dick Chapin was
a Senior Programming Director for the Quincy Family YMCA until he
retired in 1990. After retirement, Dick volunteered to run
swimming programs and help out with swim lessons. Dick would
boast that he could teach anyone to swim, even older adults.
To this day, the “Dick’s Dolphins” swim class
runs at the YMCA where many of his former students still attend his
classes. Dick passed away in 2008, but his memory is very
much alive at the Quincy Family YMCA.
