Age: Ideally 5-10 years old

Practice Days: 5 practices, Monday - Friday

Description: 

Dolphin groups are designed for new swimmers primarily ages 10&Under. There may be older swimmers in the groups who still need to learn all four strokes. Emphasis will be put on building self-esteem, learning to practice in a group, and forming proper stroke technique habits.  Making new friends and having Fun are an important part of growing the child’s love of the sport.

  • Developing proper swimming techniques and teaching swimming skills are the most important aspect of the Dolphin Groups
  • Swimmers will learn all four strokes as well as proper starts and turns in this group. 

Swimmer Expectations: This group does not have a minimum attendance requirement, but swimmers should attend as often as possible.  Attending consistently is key to progressing.  Swim meets/competitions are not required in this group, but are encouraged once the coach feels the swimmer is ready.

Equipment: Swimmers need to have a pair of Fins at practice each day.
