We invite swimmers of all ages (4-18) to come and join our team for the summer! Our coaches are dedicated to ensuring that your children have a positive and rewarding experience while making lifelong friends! The Northbrook Dolphins Swim Team emphasizes growth in swimming skills, with a focus on commitment, team fellowship, team spirit, sportsmanship, confidence, and respect for others through the combination of physical fitness and FUN!
Welcome NEW SWIMMERS!
If you are considering joining the team for the first time, we are thrilled at the prospect of having you join us! We encourage a fun, friendly environment in which each swimmer will support and cheer on the participation and performance of his or her team members...so come join the fun!
To gauge your preparation for team membership, we ask you to consider the following:
6 and under swimmers MUST be able to swim at least 15 meters unassisted, preferably 25 meters.
7 to 10 year old swimmers MUST be able to swim at least 25 meters unassisted (without stopping), and preferably 35-50 meters.
11 and older swimmers MUST be able to swim at least 50 meters unassisted (without stopping), and preferably 75 meters.
We will assess your child's ability to meet these standards through the first full week of practice. If you child is interested in joining the team, but is not yet ready to swim the appropriate distance for his/her age group, we recommend that you consider signing the child up for swim lessons and joining the team at a later date.
There is no deadline on when new swimmers can join the team.
