Planning for the 2022 Dolphins Season / Calendar of Key Dates

Hope everyone is staying warm and healthy on this cold first week of Feburary.

We wanted to give you a few updates on the 2022 season so that you can plan for all the fun this summer. (We anticipate a much more normal season with respect to COVID-19.)

First, a few changes to the leadership team:

  • Ann Bolten who has served an A Team Rep for the last three seasons, is moving into a newly created role for the team. Ann will be serving as Team Operations Director and will be leading many operational functions including the web site, registration and the team calendar. Thank you, Ann for your service as Team Rep and we look forward to having her in this new role.
  • Gayle Horn is joining Kelly Swain as A Team Rep. We thank Gayle for serving the last three years as a B Team Rep and look forward to Gayle and Kelly working together this season.
  • Dario Fuentes will be joining Matt Zaft as B Team Rep this year. Dario and Matt are morning swim buddies and we look forward to their partnership.

As you plan your kids’ summer calendars, we wanted to make sure you were aware of some key dates:

  • Early Registration Opens: Tuesday, February 15th - Given ongoing supply chain issues, we have decided to open Early Registration February 15th - March 31st to ensure suits, caps, and spirit wear arrive before the season starts. After March 31st we will not be able to guarantee spirit wear orders.
  • Afternoon practice schedule begins: Tuesday, May 31st
  • Time Trials: Saturday Morning, June 11th
  • Morning / afternoon practice schedule begins: Thursday June 16th.
