Welcome to the Cheverly Swim Team! In 2022, the Dolphins finished at the top of the B division in the Prince Montgomery Swim League and we hope to do even better in 2023!
The Cheverly Dolphin Team is open to all proficient swimmers, ages 8 – 18. The swimmers on this team should know all four strokes (freestyle, breaststroke, backstroke, and butterfly), and be able to swim the length of the pool without touching down in at least one stroke.
The Cheverly Dolphins Swim Team has experienced a level of consistency and leadership that is unusual in our league, and the result is individual and relay records, division titles, and a program where children have fun while their skills grow.
The Guppy team is our developmental swim team designed for new and young swimmers, typically ages 6 – 10, that can swim a length of the pool but are still learning basic swim stroke technique. Practices focus on building lap endurance and improving stroke technique, as well as having fun. Parents have minimal volunteer requirements and swimmers do not need a team swimsuit.
The Minnows team is designed to help new and young swimmers, ages 4-6, learn the basics of swimming in small groups.
Stroke and Turn Clinics are for Dolphin Team members who are working to improve their performance and perfect their strokes. (Dates TBD)
All Dolphins, Guppies, and Minnows communication about registration, weather, practices, and meets is done through the TeamSnap app. All swim families should download and install the application. Returning families’ accounts will be reactivated. Starting in 2023 all communication from registration through the end of the season will be in TeamSnap, updates coming shortly.
Registration and payment instructions are located on the Dolphins, Guppies, and Minnows pages.
parent VOLUNTEERS Needed
We are expecting a team of more than 200 swimmers in 2023! Please remember that our team cannot function without parent participation. It takes more that 20 adult volunteers to run each meet; some jobs like timers are trained at the meet, others like stroke and turn judges must receive PMSL certification (details below) in advance. Each family should volunteer a minimum of 8 hours over the swim season, at a meet or other event. There are lots of jobs to be done before, during, and after each meet. If you are not interested in serving at a meet, you can coordinate the food, sell merchandise, or plan the banquet. We will find a job to match your skill.
Most importantly, we need adults to complete the PMSL training for official positions. In addition to fulfilling your obligations to the team, PMSL will tell you how meets are run, why swimmers are disqualified and help you explain procedures to your swimmers, If your child(ren) has been on the team for at least one year, you need to start thinking about getting trained! Information on the training sessions can be found on the PMSL website.
