JCC Dolphins Swim Team

The JCC Dolphins Swim team is a great introduction to competitive swimming. It is open to JCC members who are between the ages of 5 and 18, who can swim 25 yards, independently. The team competes in the Greater New Orleans Country Club League. Members of the team build strength and endurance in this program. The swimmers learn all four strokes: Freestyle, Butterfly, Backstroke, Breaststroke in addition to flip turns and starts. Good sportsmanship and the value of working cooperatively as a member of a team are important components.

JCC membership is required to enroll in Swim Team.

The 2018 season has ended.  Please check back in early spring for details about summer 2019.
