Want to join the Manhattan Beach Dolphins Swim Team?
All interested swimmers must enroll in the Pre-Swim Team class to be given an opportunity to join the Manhattan Beach Dolphins. Swimmers must be able to swim 50 yards freestyle and 50 yards backstroke without stopping. This class is designed to work on endurance, stroke technique and most importantly to prepare swimmers for the Manhattan Beach Dolphins Swim Team. 

The swim team coaches will organize and prioritize the swimmers according to stroke proficiency and participation and, according to the available spots on the team, will make the determination of who will move on to the team and who should continue with Pre-Swim Team class. It is our goal to include every child who has a wish to participate. 

Prerequisite Information and Selection Process

Availability
New swim team enrollment is dependent upon the number of returning swim team members. Therefore, the available spots will vary for each season and each age group.

Selection Process
Swimmers interested in the swim team must be enrolled in the Pre-Swim Team class to be considered for the Manhattan Beach Dolphins Swim Team.

Pre-Swim Team Class
The Pre-Swim Team class is offered four times a year (Summer, Fall, Winter, and Spring). This class is designed to work on endurance, stroke technique, and most importantly, to prepare swimmers for the Manhattan Beach Dolphins Swim Team. Enrollment in Pre-Swim Team does not guarantee a spot on the Dolphins Swim Team. Once the class fills-up, a waitlist will be generated and used throughout the year for the other pre-swim team classes.

Please Note:  For Fall 2018, Winter 2019, and Spring 2019 we are only taking participants off the waitlist that was generated during Summer 2018.  The waitlist that was generated during Summer 2018 will be active until May 1, 2019 at which point, any participant who was not called or placed into the Pre-Swim Team, must re-register along with new participants.

2019 Pre-Swim Team registration will begin Monday, May 6, 2019 for Manhattan Beach residents and Tuesday, May 28, 2019 for Non-Manhattan Beach residents.  This will also be the time that new participants can register for the Pre-Swim Team.

Summer 2019 Registration (online 6:00 AM, mail, fax and walk-in)
Manhattan Beach residents - Monday, May 6, 2019
Non-Manhattan Beach residents - Tuesday, May 28, 2019
