Due to Covid-19, the below may not be available for the summer of 2020 or will be highly restricted. As of now, we will only have a limited and non league affiliated swim team season that is only open to returning members, ages 7 and above, from the 2019 Dolphins team. We also will not be doing stroke and turn clinics or have Guppies and Minnows lessons this year.
Cheverly Swim Team
Registration links for our swim team will be coming later this spring. It is important to note that all swimmers must be registered and paid in order to participate, with no exceptions. Swimmers not paid will not be seeded in swim meets.
Welcome to the Cheverly Dolphins Swim Team homepage! We are looking forward to another fun and exciting season competing in the Prince-Mont Swim League.
The Cheverly Dolphin Team is open to all proficient swimmers, ages 8 – 18. The swimmers on this team should know all four strokes (freestyle, breaststroke, backstroke and butterfly), and be able to swim the length of the pool in at least one stroke. See below for information about our developmental swim team programs (Guppies and Minnows).
The swim season starts May 26th with our annual potluck/team meeting, and daily practices begin May 27th for all age groups, 8 & Under, 9-10 years, 11-12 years, 13-14 years, 15-18 years.
Swimmers compete in five (5) Saturday swim meets: June 13, 20, 27; July 4, 11; the Divisional meet on July 18th; and may qualify for the All-Stars meet July 25th.
Each team in the league is expected to fill over 20 volunteer roles for each meet -- all families are expected to volunteer regularly throughout the season.
Stroke and Turn Clinics are for Dolphin Team members that are working to improve their performance and perfect their strokes. (June 22-25)
The Guppy team is our developmental swim team designed for new and young swimmers, approximately 5 to 10 years old, that can swim a length of the pool but are still learning basic swim stroke technique. (Weekly, June 22-25, June 29-July 2, and July 6-9.)
