Dare to be a Golden Dolphin

Last year the Golden Dolphins Swim Club launched a new initiative, the Dare to be a Dolphin program.

Last year the Golden Dolphins Swim Club launched a new initiative, the Dare to be a Dolphin program.

The program is aimed at the junior competitive swimmer that still needs a personal floatation device (PFD) to swim but is on the verge of breaking through to be an independent swimmer.

Within three weeks of joining this program last year we had athletes swimming half a length unsupported with a PFD.

Later in the season they were swimming the full length and even participating at swim meets.

Register for the program at the Town of Golden registration night being held at the arena lobby on April 26 from  6 to 8 p.m.

For more information on this program contact Jackie Casey at jcjanes@telus.net
