CELEBRATING 60 YEARS (1958-2018)!

LMYA Dolphins:
A Community-based Recreational Swim Team Since 1958

The LMYA Dolphins presented the first opportunity for East Bay swimmers to explore their athletic skills in an aquatic world. Founded by Lafayette parents Don Nesbit, Dick Dobbins and Fran High, the Dolphins established the foundation for the Contra Costa Swim League. The team held its first practice in summer 1958 at Acalanes High School's pool. 60 years later, we still call the Acalanes High School pool our home pool and we are located at 1200 Pleasant Hill Road, Lafayette, CA 94549.
