General Policies
NWB is a member of the Montgomery County Swim League (MCSL). The MCSL is made up of about 90 teams which are grouped for competition based on the times swum by each team the previous season.  For the 2022 season we are assigned to Division F.
An important purpose of the MCSL is to provide organized, friendly team competition within a fair and wholesome environment and to foster good sportsmanship. We request that all swimmers and parents be respectful and show good sportsmanship at swim meets and swim team related events. Please take the time to read the codes of conduct on the bulletin board or view online at
You must be a member of the Northwest Branch Swim Club to participate on the NWB dolphin swim team.  All NWB pool members, ages 5-18, who can swim one length of the pool freestyle and one length on their back are eligible to join the team.  For novice swimmers, we have a Pre-Team.
