Nantucket Dolphins - Mission Statement
The Nantucket Community Pool’s Dolphins Swim Team is the only year round developmental swim team on island. Your children are the cornerstone of our program. We are dedicated to provide the opportunity for your athlete to strive and grow both as a swimmer and as an individual.
Our goal is to develop strong, safe, confident and successful swimmers. It is fantastic when records are broken and personal best times are accomplished but the measure of success is in gaining respect for the sport, fellow teammates, coaches, volunteers, officials and oneself. We try to instill attributes such as self-esteem, integrity, teamwork, sportsmanship in each swimmer through positive reinforcement and discipline. It is our hopes that the life lessons learned from the sport of swimming will transfer to the swimmer’s life outside of the pool.
The team began with twenty swimmers back in 1990 and had only two swim meets. We are now entering the beginning of our 25th season and had about 150 swimmers participating in our program last year. We compete in the Southeastern Massachusetts Swim League (SEMSL). We are also affiliated with and are registered with United States Swimming.
