2021 Season Updates
The South Orange Dolphins are back this year!
2021 Season Dates and Practices
2021 Season Dates: June 7th - July 30th
Afternoon Practices: The season begins in early June for all age groups, with after-school practices held between 3:30pm-6:00pm, Monday – Friday. Practice sessions will be between 45-60 minutes long.
Summer Morning Practices: On June 28th, the team will transition to morning practices held between 8:00am and 9:30am, Monday-Saturday. Practice sessions will be 45 minutes.
8 & Under Group: To maintain an effective coach/swimmer ratio for younger swimmers, on June 28th, the 6-8 year old members of our team will meet 3 mornings a week: either (1) Monday, Wednesday, Friday or (2) Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday. Groups will be selected during registration. Please note that members of both groups are invited to participate in competitions regardless of the day.
All competition this summer is dependent on current COVID safety guidelines and League operations. We hope that swim meets will be held as usual, but if needed and possible, we will develop a modified meet schedule to provide your child with an opportunity to compete.
