Our Swim Team
The Meadow Dolphins, founded in 1957, are a recreational swim team for swimmers, ages 4-18, that competes in the Orinda Moraga Pools Association (OMPA) league.
Practices are broken down by age group and are designed to develop the competitive strokes, strong starts and finishes, and race techniques, while building strength, confidences and a great sense of community.
Two-day and four-day Stroke Cinics, as well as Start-and-Turn Clinics, prepare swimmers for the summer season.
Pre-Season practices start in late April; moving to regular morning practice in the summer. Our season culminates in August with the OMPA championship.
Fall Swimming, lead by our summer coaching staff, runs in the afternoons from September—November. Swimmers have the option of competing in fall meets.
