The Golden Dolphin Swim Club has hit the waves for another busy season of learning and competition.

Kyle Morrow, the head coach of the team this year, is thrilled to be in Golden and working with the swimmers of all levels.

“This is my second year with the Dolphins and my fourth year of competitive coaching,” Morrow said.

At the time of going to press just under 100 swimmers had been registered for the season with people still able to join up.

One of the new additions to the programs offered this year is Dare to be a Dolphin.

“Some of the younger kids who are just getting started can get in the water and develop good fundamentals that will be used to develop their strokes down the road,” Morrow said.

Being a coach of the Dolphin’s gives Morrow the chance to pass on what he has learned to a younger group of passionate swimmers.

“We have a huge number of new swimmers come into the club this year so we are getting into the swing of things for our first meet,” Morrow said.

The group will be travelling all around B.C. to take part in many meets leading to provincials.

Morrow explained this program has something for swimmers of all different levels.

“The social aspect is huge. We have kids who joined the swim club because their friends had fun last year,” he said. “We have many athletes who are cross training for other sports as well in our upper levels. It is a fun time and a great way to spend your summer.”

The Golden team is one of the largest teams in B.C. according to Morrow.

“They (former coaches, executives) have built a fundamental base for the team,” he said.

Anyone interested in registering for the team can go to www.goldendolphins.ca or drop by the Golden Swimming Pool from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m., Monday to Friday.
