Team Accomplishments

Douglas Dolfins Swim Team

Dear sponsor:


A: Thanks to the help of generous sponsors like you, the Douglas Dolfins Swim Team had a very successful 2012-2013 season.  Among our many activities we:

  1. Directly involved about 130 youth ages 5-19 – some via scholarships – in Carson Valley’s only nationally-accredited USA Swimming program.
  2. Imparted life-long skills and benefits to all participants such as fitness, sportsmanship, water safety, teamwork, time management, physical and mental discipline, scholarship, and competitive swimming techniques.
  3. Hosted three large 3-day swim meets and several smaller competitions, bringing about 1000 competitive swimmers and their families to our community from all over northern Nevada and California.
  4. Brought 36 Dolfins athletes to Nevada State Swimming Championships, with one Dolfin taking 5 individual State titles, and 19 top-8 finishes among 8 athletes.
  5. Took 10 Dolfins athletes to Pacific Zone All-stars, 7 to Junior Olympic Championships, 4 to Far Western Championships, 8 to Husky Invitational Senior Championships, 4 to Pacific Swimming Senior Championships, and 1 to CA-NV Sectional Championships -- among several additional qualifiers.
  6. Ten individual and 16 additional relay swimmers broke Carson Valley swimming records 99 times in various age-groups and events, some going back at least 17 years.  Of 379 possible records, 67 (18%) are now from the 2012-2013 season.
  7. Two individual and four relay swimmers clocked multiple top-10 Pacific Swimming performances for their ages (some as high as top 3), and one overall top-25 Senior performance (a Dolfins first), among over 20,000 Pacific Swimming athletes.
  8. Two Dolfins qualified for and competed at short-course Junior National Championships (a Dolfins first), and one Dolfin was accepted to the USA Swimming Scholastic All-American Team.
  9. Dolfins athletes helped the 2013 (update: and 2014!) Douglas High School Tigers swimming & diving team to another Northern Nevada Regional Championship title and undefeated season, with 3 Regional Champions in 6 events, and one State Champion.
  10. Two Dolfins athletes were selected to compete at the North American Challenge Cup Championship in Washington, and brought home individual and relay gold.
  11. Positioned some of our top graduating Seniors for college scholarship support.

Please help us to continue, and build upon, these successes for the youth of our community in 2014-2015!  Thank you for your support.
