Illinois Swimming

Welcome to the Illinois Valley Dolphins!

Welcome to the Illinois Valley YMCA Dolphin Swim Team! To all veteran swimmers and parents, a hearty welcome back! Without your dreams and dedication, this program would be impossible! Thank you!

Also, a big welcome to all swimmers and parents new to the team! You can look forward to fun, friendship, exercise, and excitement! We know how awkward it can feel being the rookie, but we have great Dolphin parents, coaches, and swimmers to help you through the ropes. Just ask and they will be there to help!

Please read our handbook, email notifications, and the bulletin boards! You will be well-informed if you do and your year will go smoothly! Come to practice, ask questions, volunteer, and have fun! Many lasting friendships have developed because of our close team and working together.

Have a great season!! Go Dolphins!!

Foundation Philosophy
To build a solid swimming program the Dolphins need the continued positive cooperation of a strong parent organization. Coaches and swimmers make up two sides of a triangle. However, the real foundation of this strong organization is the third side, the triangle’s base: THE PARENTS.
