Dolphins off to a swimming start

 

September 21, 2017



The Haines Dolphins Swim Team’s 2017-2018 season is off to a great start. We are very excited to have Jackie St. Clair, a former Dolphins swimmer herself, leading the team as the head coach!

We have a large number of returning and new Dolphins, growing our team to over 50 swimmers! We are getting new kids in the pool and excited about swimming, and we have a very competitive, strong group of athletes. Last season most swimmers set personal records, some set new Dolphins’ records and several competed in the Junior Olympics, winning top medals in the statewide meet.

Substantial grant support from the Chilkat Valley Community Foundation and the Haines Borough helps the Dolphins team provide after-school exercise and expert coaching to this young group of swimmers five days a week during a nine-month season. Many businesses and individuals also provide significant support to the team. Thank you for your investment in our town’s young people. You are helping these swimmers build character, skill, and fitness.

On behalf of the Haines Dolphins Swim Team
