The Dolphins Squad is the progression on from the Sealion squad. The Dolphins squad consists of three sections; Early Dolphins, Dolphins and Upper Dolphins.
The aim of the Cirencester Dolphins squad is to develop swimmers that are technically excellent within a fun learning environment. Emphasis is placed on the quality of technique across all four strokes rather than on the quantity of metres swam.
As Cirencester is a competitive swim club the swimmers are also introduced to, and quickly become highly proficient at, important race skill such as starts, turns and finishes.
