Aquatics Center

Dolphin Swim Team

Registration beginning September 1st. Practices begin mid-September and run through mid-June.

 

We are happy to announce the start of the Dolphin Swim Team for the 2020-21 season. As with many things these days we have had to make changes to ensure the health & safety of our swimmers and our staff. Please take time to read through the entire description. As of now we will not be scheduling swim meets. If other teams in our league return to the pool we will schedule Virtual Swim Meets. All participants will be temperature screened when they enter the building and will need to go through a COVID-19 contact tracing questionnaire. Our first priority is the health & safety of all in our community. Please contact Deidra Clark-Towers, Aquatic Director at dclark-towers@miyjcc.org or at 516-822-3535 ext. 330 with any questions.
