Dolphins is a competitive swimming club based in the Dulwich
area of South-East London and was founded in 2012. It has
grown very quickly in size and is now well-established in the area
with strong links to the local schools, many of which supply us
with pools for training.
We cater for all levels
of ability, from learn-to-swim right through to those in our
Performance squad, some of whom swim at national and international
level. We involve families in a swimming programme which builds on
a love of the sport and offers the chance to progress through a
squad structure. Whatever your goals we hope to help you progress
and believe, as Lani Kraus did, that:“one person working
toward a dream is worth 99 people just
starts at 4 yrs old and runs on a Sunday morning with 30
minute sessions. The next level up, our Developmental squads, have
1 to 2 hours/week training. Our pre-competition squads
train for 3 to 4 hours per week and our senior squads train
anywhere between 4 and 12 hours per week.
There is an annual
membership fee and a monthly squad fee, and also a prepayment for
our twice yearly club Championships which all but the learn-to-swim
take part in.
The club is run by a
volunteer management committee as well as several other parent
volunteers, and is non-profit-making.
