Our Program.

The Clinton Hills Dolphins have a long swim tradition. With a team song, post-meet Skyline trips, and spirited swim mates that cheer and chant for one another.   Joining the swim team is a great way to meet new friends, stay active, and have loads of fun.  All club members, ages 6 to 18 are eligible to participate.  Some of our swimmers compete on year-round teams, but most participate only in the summer. There’s a wide range of skill and speed, but our coaches are here to guide and help your swimmer to grow in ability and confidence.

Clinton Hills is part of the PPSL (Private Pool Swim League). The team typically participates in 5 meets, an intersqad meet and A and B/Eastside league championships at the end of the season.   Team member do not have to participate in meets but we highly recommend each swimmer gives it a try!

In swimming, parent participation is not only encouraged but necessary. In order for our swimmers to compete, your help is crucial. There are many ways to volunteer from Swim Meets to social events, including team breakfast, the Over Night and our team outings (bowling/laser tag). When you commit your child to the team, you are also committing to volunteer.

***Note for our youngest swimmers:

During the first week of practice, our coaches will have our 8-and-under swimmers complete a swim evaluation to determine if they’re ready for the swim team. The coaches try to make this as low key as possible. To join the swim team, kids need to be able to swim one lap without touching the bottom, or the lane line. Swimmers who aren’t quite ready will be directed to swim lessons. If you’re unsure if your child is ready, we suggest that you register (so that we have a signed waiver for the swim evaluation) but that you hold off on paying your team dues.

 If any potential parent (or current parent) has questions about the program, please reach out to dolphins@clintonhills.com for your answer.
