Beginners will learn about competitive swimming strokes and will work towards being introduced to competition. Swimmers will have two scheduled practice sessions per week. Progression to the next level would be based on achievement (Dolphins 2) or age (Bronze 1 / Dolphins 3). Swimmers in Dolphins 2 have some competitive swimming experience.
