The Ginter Park Dolphins are the pride of our pool! The team allows for our families to volunteer and connect at practices and meets. It gives our children the opportunity to develop as swimmers and athletes. Please consider joining our team and becoming part of the action! Feel free to reach out to our coaching staff with questions about your child’s abilities:

The LGRA Dolphins swim team is a member of the James River Aquatic Club (JRAC). The JRAC includes almost 20 teams from pools throughout the metro area. Our meets and rules are governed by the JRAC.

This year we are inviting younger swimmers to join our Little Fins practice group.  If your child is between 4 & 8 years old and can make it almost the whole way across the pool with stops, please consider joining Little Fins!  The goal is to successfully complete a 25 freestyle by the end of the season.
