The YMCA strives to build character in all who participate in YMCA programming. The character values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility are part of every program the YMCA offers. The Dolphins Swim Team seeks to encourage and motivate each swim team member to develop his or her individual skills which enhances self-esteem.
Tryouts are held in October and are required for all new swimmers. There is also a Parent Information meeting held every October. During this meeting, parents receive important season information, registration materials, and fundraising materials. Membership and Registration fees must be paid at the time of registration. The YMCA does offer scholarships for membership fees, and families may participate in fundraising to offset registration fees. Team suits are usually sized and purchased by the end of the first week of practice.
In accordance with Y-USA sanction rules, Dolphins team members are required to be YMCA members. In order to compete in swim team meets, the swimmer must be a member in good standing for 30 days prior to the meet. The age of the swimmer on December 1 determines which age group the swimmer will be assigned.
