Wentworth Dolphins Swim Team -
The Dolphins Swim Team was established in 1997 by a small group of member's children who were interested in competitive swimming. Today, the team has grown to about 75 swimmers ranging in age from 5 to 18 years. The Dolphins compete in Division II of the Summer Aquatic League. During the summer season we compete with six other teams in the surrounding New Hampshire and Massachusetts area.
The benefits of being on this team are endless, including building self-confidence, achieving goals, learning sportsmanship, exercise, fun and many friendships. The program is aimed at learning the fundamentals of competitive swimming through a fun, positive and recreational environment. Being a member of the Dolphins team requires dedication, hard work and team spirit. Our concentration will be on learning and/or improving all four strokes, flip turns, "legal" swimming (so no one will disqualify in a meet) and finally increasing speed. The only requirement for participation is the swimmer needs to be able to swim freestyle (front crawl) at least one length of the pool. Swimmers who are children or grandchildren of members from ages 5 to 18 are welcome to join in this program.
The swimmers are divided into the following age groups:
- 6 & Under
- 8 & Under
- 10 & Under
- 12 & Under
- 14 & Under
- 18 & Under
