Clearwater Swim Team
Swim Team Overview
The Clearwater Swim Team has a long-standing tradition of fostering a fun and competitive environment for swimmers ranging in age from 6 – 18.
In 2018, the Clearwater Dolphins celebrated their 11th consecutive undefeated season, and won their 11th consecutive Town & Country League All Team Meet Championship.
The program has grown tremendously more than 150 swimmers joined the 2018 team. We are especially proud that our team spans all levels of ability, from novice competitors to nationally-ranked athletes.
