Membership Information

We invite you to be part of South Snohomish County Dolphins Swimming

South Snohomish County Dolphins (SSCD) is a USA Swimming year round competitive swim team offering high quality professional coaching and technique instruction for all ages and abilities. The goal of our team is to provide every member an opportunity to improve swimming skills and achieve success at his or her level of ability, from novice to international competitor.

SSCD is a non-profit club run by an elected Board of Directors which meet monthly. All members are welcome at each meeting (please contact a board member if you'd like to attend a meeting) and encouraged to be involved in team activities and fundraisers.

USA and PNS Swimming: Every Dolphin swimmer must join the United States Swimming Association and Pacific Northwest Swimming. These groups are the governing bodies of  the United States and our local area. SSCD collects a registration fee which it forwarded to USA Swimming and PNS and is included in your annual registration fee. If you are transfering from another USA Swim Club, you will be asked to fill out transfer paperwork and swim as an "unattached" swimmer during meets for 120 days following your last meet with your previous team.

Training fees are based on the swimmer’s training group and cover coaching salaries and pool rentals. These fees assume full participation by each swimmer. While the team may take some time off in the months of December & April, fees are not pro-rated in these months. Inability to attend all scheduled workouts for any given week does not relieve the swimmer of the obligation for full monthly fees. The Dolphins typically take a 3 week training break in the month of August (in between the Long Course and Short Course seasons) and fees are, therefore, are not assessed in that month.

To know which group is right for your child, new swimmers should use information in the Training Group Descriptions to narrow down their choices.  Swimmers are always welcome to attend a practice/workout and see if the group is the right fit.  But, coaches will always make the final group placement decisions. 

Tryouts: Please  Click Here to arrange for a tryout to assess your child’s swimming ability and placement in the program. If you are currently a member of another USA Swimming team, we ask that you inform your current coach of your intent to try out for SSCD.

Pool Locations: SSCD trains at Kamiak High School and occasionally at Explorer Middle School. These pools are a part of the Mukilteo School District.
