PCCA Dolphins Swim Team

"Our aim is not to produce champions, but to produce an atmosphere in which champions are inevitable. Swimming is a means to an end ...to build self-confidence, self-discipline, integrity and courage for life." -Forbes Carlisle

The 200+ member swim team consists of swimmers from 5-18 years of age. A variety of groups allow for skill levels ranging from non-competitive beginners to dedicated, advanced swimmers. PCCA Swim Team also offers youth and high school water polo programs in the spring and summer.
