SWIMMING FACILITIES

Our swimmers enjoy two outdoor swimming pools. Our six lane lap pool is 25 yards long and heated to 82 degrees year-round. Our recreation pool (Rec Pool) is 40’ x 50.’ It is utilized for swim lessons and family play with half of the pool being shallow. A swim lift is available at both pools for anyone needing additional assistance entering and exiting the water.

Our experienced lifeguards are American Red Cross certified and are typically on-duty at the Rec Pool

12 noon  to 7:00 PM,  Memorial weekend through Labor Day weekend, seven days a week.  We also staff special events at the Club such as birthday parties and barbecues (contact the Front Desk for more information).

FRESNO DOLPHIN SWIM TEAM

The Fresno Dolphins Swim Team is a full-spectrum age group and senior swimming team, affiliated with USA Swimming, Inc. We provide facilities and programs which encourage young people to reach their full potential in competitive swimming and water polo. There is a place within the structure of our team for young people of all ability levels; from the beginning swimmer who can barely swim one length of the pool, to the collegiate swimmer with Olympic aspirations. We guard against the "too much, too soon" syndrome. We strive to develop swimmers in a graduated system which encourages consistent improvement from their elementary school through collegiate years. Swimmers are placed in groups after our coaching staff evaluates their age, skills, and level of commitment. As these factors change, swimmers progress through the program. There is a gradual increase in time and effort required as each swimmer grows toward their full potential. We want all our swimmers to experience the joy of collegiate swimming. With this in mind, we set a sure, steady course, and encourage our swimmers to follow it. We are affiliated with USA Swimming, Inc. For insurance purposes, each team member must register yearly with USA Swimming.

Mini-Dolphins: This is a pre-competitive group for very new swimmers who are 4-8 years old.  Swimmers must be able to swim 25 yards of freestyle or backstroke. Stroke, start and turn instruction are emphasized.

Bronze Team: Novice swimmers who are 5-8 years old.  Swimmers must be able to swim 50 yards of freestyle and backstroke.   Once again, stroke, start and turn instruction are emphasized.

Silver Team: Swimmers generally 9-10 years-old who demonstrate proficiency in freestyle and  backstroke and are currently learning breaststroke and butterfly.  All strokes, starts and turns will be refined in this group.  Swimmers will learn to use a pace clock in proactive sessions and start interval training. Silver Team swimmers will compete  mainly in the Central Valley.
