Support Haines Dolphins for 'Swimboree'


March 12, 2020 | View PDF

The Haines Dolphins Swim Team is pleased to announce that their annual fundraiser has kicked off. Formerly known as the “Swim-a-thon”, the event has a new name: the HDST “Swimboree”. The Swimboree is the Dolphin’s only public fundraiser, and 100% of the proceeds go to support the annual budget needs of the swim team.

What is the Swimboree? On March 28, swimmers will endeavor to swim up to 200 lengths of the pool within two hours. Little Dolphins, represented by beginners, will swim the width of the pool for up to two hours. The rest of the athletes will put their training and stamina to the test by completing as many lengths as they can in the allotted time.

We would like to thank the community of Haines for its consistent outstanding support of this excellent program over the years, which currently has about 65 swimmers of all ages. Ability levels range from those learning how to swim, to those that are regionally competitive and travel to places like Anchorage, Fairbanks, Whitehorse, and Oregon for meets, including Junior Olympics. The program’s success is directly related to the generosity of this community that has financially supported it. The HDST thanks you!

Please consider pledging a swimmer for their efforts -- one may show up at your door! Donations can also be made online: (you can select a swimmer to pledge) or through the mail to: HDST, PO BOX 1367, Haines, AK, 99827. All donations are tax deductible.
