Brookline Dolphins Swim Team

Competitive Season

The Dolphins is a year-round recreational team for swimmers 7-18 year old, which focuses on improving swim skills and challenging swimmers in a fun and sports-friendly environment! As part of the Winter Suburban Swim League (WSSL), the Dolphins compete against neighboring town swim teams from December to February. Trying-out is required to participate in the competitive season.

Participation Guidelines

Visit our Team Unify site for additional information other than the one available here or please contact us via phone or email.

Program Goals

  • To provide swimmers with the opportunity to develop their swimming and social skills within the context of a supportive and nurturing environment.
  • To build upon the swimmers' knowledge of the four competitive strokes, and help them develop and improve these strokes to the best of their ability.
  • To deliver a youth athletic program that encourages good sportsmanship and teamwork, in order to instill a positive attitude and strong self-esteem in all our participants.
  • To have FUN!

2018-2019 Tryouts

(Returning Dolphins that qualified AND attended B or A Championships, do not need to try out. An email will be sent to last season's families to confirm pre-registration dates in June).

New swimmers looking to join the Dolphins, however, must try out for the team. Below are the current tryout dates for next season. To register for tryouts or for the team, please call the front desk at 617-713-5435 or do so in person.


Dolphins in Training

To better accommodate both groups this year, the Dolphins in Training program will be running on the weekends this season:

Saturday 1:00-2:00 pm
Sunday 1:45-2:45 pm

There are no meets, volunteering or minimum attendance requirements. We only ask that your swimmer be at least an American Red Cross Level 3 swim level.
