LESD mission is to develop nationally ranked swimmers while aiding in each child's mental, social, physical, and emotional growth. LESD swimmers are encouraged to be the best that they can be.  They are taught to take responsibility for their actions and to develop a true appreciation for what they, as a team and as individuals, can accomplish.  These critical, character building life lessons resonate with Silver Dolphins for the rest of their lives.

The team is comprised of six different training group levels with five different locations. We operate on a 12-month basis, with short breaks between seasons. The summer ("long course") season starts early in April and extends through mid-August, while the winter season ("short course") runs from September through late March.
