About the Dolfins
Have Fun! Swim Fast! Founded in 1964, the Pleasant Hill Dolfins is a summer recreational swim team. Daily practice with instruction in all four competitive strokes, racing starts and turns and swim meets in the summer. The team also offers special activities for swimmers and their families. Swimmers must be able to swim 25 yards of freestyle (face in the water with rhythmic breathing) and 25 yards backstroke.

The District is planning for a 2021 Dolfins season! While we don’t know when the current health restrictions will ease, we have become experts at pivoting over the last year and are planning alternate programs in the event health order restrictions prevent a ‘regular’ season. This includes options such as small group clinics, a shortened season and revising how meets are held (holding them later in the summer and splitting meets by age groups in order to reduce capacity).

We have planned the practice and meet schedule, but please be aware that these may require changes. We will communicate changes as soon as we can.

Please see our Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) for information about the health and safety procedures we have implemented for participants and staff.
