Other Dolphin Events
Pasta Party is a long-standing summer swim team tradition. Families gather at the pool pavilion and share a potluck pasta dinner; parents’ meeting and pep rally for swimmers take place immediately after dinner. Families sign up to bring a pasta dish, pizza, salad, bread, or dessert (enough to feed 8 to 10 people), and everyone brings drinks (a 2-liter bottle of soda, tea, or lemonade). Drinking water and paper and plastic ware are provided. If the next morning’s meet is at home, all families stay after dinner to set up the pool (a 20-minute job, as long as we have enough help).
SBP Dolphins SWIMATHON
The SBP SWIMATHON is typically a Tuesday in late June during morning and afternoon swim team practices. SWIMATHON is a SBP Dolphin tradition where swimmers obtain monetary pledges (or a one time donation) from family, neighbors and friends for each lap the swimmer completes. Pledges can be $0.01 per lap, or $10.00 per lap, any amount is welcomed!!! Prizes will be given to swimmers with the most laps and swimmers with the most pledge money collected.
Volunteers are needed for this event! Most important are the lap counters! Ideally, we would like 6 counters at all times as it can be challenging for a counter to keep up with swimmers in multiple lanes.
After their morning laps, swimmers can enjoy a donut and on the completion of afternoon practice, pizza.
Dolphin Games is an optional (but fun!) team activity. Swimmers gather at the pool on Tuesday evenings for Capture the Flag, Manhunt, Beaver, and more. Popsicles and bug spray are provided. All are welcome!
The biggest party of the Dolphins summer! The Dolphin Dance is a family dance party, held at the pool pavilion. All are welcome for two hours of Limbo, Macarena, Cupid Shuffle, and Electric Slide. Bring a snack or drinks to share, and be prepared to shake it.
The Dolphins’ annual Awards Banquet is held at the pool pavilion, on the Wednesday after Divisionals. Swimmers’ awards (High Points, Most Improved, Hardest-Working, Most Dependable) are presented, graduating seniors and parents are honored, and swimmers and families enjoy a slide show of the season’s highlights. Dinner is catered, though families are asked to bring salad or dessert; cost is $TBD per adult (swimmers eat free). All swimmers who compete successfully in a meet are recognized.
