Hello Dolphin families. Some of you may have received an invoice yesterday that appeared to be from the team. If you did you may disregard this invoice.

Hi Dan, Yesterday, an email was sent to you and your members with an invoice enclosed. We understand that some of your members were not supposed to receive this and that the invoice...

There is almost nothing more exciting than a close swim meet, and ours yesterday against the Dunn Loring Dolphins couldn’t have been any closer.  It was a tie with each team getting 210 of the possible 420 points.  While it doesn’t happen every week, it is not uncommon.  Congratulations to our Dolphin coaches and swimmers thanks for the nailbitier of a meet.  Congratulations as well to Jack Renner for improving on his record 13/14 50M Breaststroke record  Thank you to all the parents who made our final home Saturday meet a success, as...

While any swim meet is fun, one that ends with the Dolphins getting a ‘1’ in our win column is even sweeter.  Congratulations to Coach Jeremy, his coaching staff, and all our swimmers for beating the Villa Aquatic Gorillas yesterday with a score of 227 to 193.  Go Dolphins!  Thank you to all our parents and volunteers for helping run a great home meet. In addition to our regular practice schedule, the week ahead is a busy one so please bear with me. Monday Night Meet @ Virginia Run - Tomorrow...

Any week in which we host two meets is an especially busy one for our coaches, parents and volunteers.  Despite a rainy start to our Monday meet we got every event completed.  Our swim meet yesterday against Pinecrest didn’t have the outcome we’d hoped for in terms of the score, but we had several strong swims on a beautiful day at a meet that happened without a hitch.   Thank you all for helping make both meets a success.   On to Week 6! Monday - Tomorrow evening we have...

Time Trials Yesterday There are at least two things completely outside our control as Swim Team Reps: The meet schedule established by our league The temperature and weather Sometimes those two jive and sometimes you make the best of what you have. Despite the colder temperature our swimmers, parents, and volunteers did a great job of the latter.  Thank you all for helping make Time Trials 2019 a smooth success!! Tuesday Morning - PPP (Pictures, Practice, and Pancakes) Tuesday morning is our team picture day. The Event Page has all...

Hello Dolphin Families - I hope your swimmers all enjoyed their first week of practice.  The feedback from the coaches and parents I’ve received so far  have been very positive.  This week we’ll continue to have afternoon practices as posted on the team website https://bit.ly/2J6z5Rr.
