Trials are held on the following days and times –

Tuesdays at 5.30 pm

Parents should arrive at the reception area to the pool at least 5 minutes early and inform reception that they are there for a trial with Dolphins, the reception staff will direct you to the correct pool.

Once on poolside the parent will be asked to fill in some new starter details and the swimmers will be assessed by one of the coaches and allocated to an appropriate group.

There are a variety of different groups your child may be allocated too depending on age and ability.  The younger swimmers 10 years and under may start with the Dolphins groups, slightly older swimmers may start with the Junior Club Groups.
