Welcome to the Waukegan Dolphins Swim Team!  


Our 2022-2023 Team Registration is open!

Thank you for your interest in the Waukegan Dolphins Swim Team!  We are a youth swim team based in Waukegan, Illinois that serves families in the communities of Waukegan, Zion, Winthrop Harbor, Kenosha, Beach Park, Wadsworth, Gurnee, Antioch, Lindenhurst, Pleasant Prairie and everywhere in between and beyond!  We compete in the North Division of the Northern Illinois Swim Conference (NISC). 
 On WDST, our coaches will provide the opportunity for all team members to:

  •  Develop physical skills in the sport of swimming
  • Learn positive social behavior and team sportsmanship characteristics

  • Develop knowledge and appreciation for swimming as a healthy lifetime activity

  • Keep winning and losing in its proper perspective

Practice sessions will focus on developing the four competitive strokes and building knowledge in physical training, nutrition, swim terminology and goal setting.  Coaches will use stroke drills, stroke mechanics, starts and turns, and race strategies to teach swimmers.  Practices will be designed to improve strokes for personal achievements as well as team success.
