About the Dolphins
Welcome to the Strathmore Bel Pre Dolphins! The Strathmore Bel Pre Dolphins is a neighborhood swim team in Silver Spring, Maryland. The team, which has been in continuous existence for 50 years, is open to all Strathmore Bel Pre community children ages 4 to 18. The swim team is an anchor for the Strathmore Bel Pre community; many strong and lasting neighborhood friendships have been built through families’ involvement in the swim team. Our approach is inclusive, welcoming, supportive, and FUN.
We welcome swimmers of ALL levels. Swimmers start as early as 3 (in the Developmental group) and our league allows children to compete until age 18. Our Developmental group offers small-group and individual instruction for beginning swimmers and non-swimmers, and as long as a child can safely swim the length of the pool, she’ll have a chance to compete.
Our team is a member of and is governed by the Prince-Mont Swim League (PMSL) and abides by all rules of eligibility and competition set forth by the league. Copies of the PMSL handbook are issued at the beginning of each season, and the handbook is also available online at http://www.princemont.org/. In addition to the rules of competition and eligibility established by the league, the SBP Dolphins also maintain and enforce a Code of Conduct for coaches, swimmers, and parents.
