Dulwich Dolphin’s Competitions Schedule Autumn/Winter 2021/22

Please find below details of the Club’s planned galas for this season and the various actions required.  Remember to check the Club website competitions section regularly.

Key information

These galas can only go ahead (and will not go ahead without) without parents volunteering their time to act as officials and as poolside support.  Please consider offering a little of your time to ensure the meets can run. 

We require at least 15 parent volunteers at every meet. 

  • Non-technical – ie marshalling, anyone can do. 
  • Technical - to help officiate, you need to be qualified – contact [email protected] for advice/support. 

The Dulwich Dolphins Club website will be updated (competitions/events tab) for these meets in due course.  This is where you then sign-up to volunteer.

Remember to do your swimmer’s entries in good time.  Any swim related questions should be discussed with your child’s coach in good time.
