Join the Team!

When can I join the Dolphin swim team?

We welcome new swimmers at any time!  Our season typically starts in May and September, but swimmers are welcome to join in the middle of the season.  Flexibility is one of the great parts about competitive swimming!

How do I join the Dolphins?

Step 1 -Schedule an in-water skill evaluation to determine the best practice group for your swimmer. These are conducted by a Dolphins coach and typically take about 15 minutes. To schedule a convenient time for your swimmer's skill evaluation, email our Aquatics Coordinator/Swim Coach, Casey Grave here.

Step 2 - Complete a New Swimmer Information Form and give the completed form to the Dolphins coach when you arrive for the in-water swimmer evaluation.
Step 3 - A Dolphins coach will conduct the skill evaluation and assign your swimmer to a Dolphins practice group with others at a similar level of development.
Step 4 - Attend the assigned practice group for one week FREE before you choose to join the Dolphins team.
Step 5 - Complete the Swimmer Packet and return to Coach Casey or Front Desk staff at YMCA.
