We are the Dolphins, the mighty, mighty Dolphins!!!
The Cheverly Dolphin swim 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 in at least one stroke. Our youngest swimmers routinely complete 20-30 laps (~500 – 750m) per practice, while our senior swimmers routinely complete 60-70 laps (1500-1700m). This team requires a high level of family involvement.
This team competes in the Prince-Mont Swim League. Based on speed and availability, the coaches select the meet event(s) in which the swimmers will compete; more swimmers can compete at home meets than away meets.
