2024 Summer with the Dolphins

Somerset Dolphins

It’s only January but we know many of you are already locking in summer camps for your kids so we appreciate you keeping the SOMERSET DOLPHINS top of mind in your planning.

Important 2024 Season Dates and Times

Attached is a preliminary calendar of all the 2024 meets and some of the key FUN SOCIAL EVENTS we are planning for this season.

A few key reminders about timing:

  • Practices are in the afternoons for Minis (3:30pm and 4pm) and the team (4:30pm or 5:30pm);
  • Morning team practices start after MCPS school ends and will be 8:30am to 10am;
  • B meets are Wednesday evenings – arrival times around 4:50pm, meet starts at 6pm;
  • A meets* are Saturday mornings – arrival times around 8am, meet starts at 9am.

*A reminder that as a small team, many new and recreational swimmers end up qualifying for A meets so we appreciate you keeping your kids in town for A meets as much as possible!


  • We will be opening registration in the next couple of months – stay tuned!
  • If you know anyone who has moved to the neighborhood who has young kids please have them email Ann at [email protected] so we can add them to our team database so they get these emails.

Girls Club Led by Dolphins Coaches

We wanted to highlight a camp option for girls ages 7-11 that is run by Dolphins Junior Coaches Olivia Zaft, Phoebe Lewis, Sedona Hawkins, Avery Mascott, Elana Bilbao, and Clara Bilbao. Camp is offered the first three weeks of MCPS summer (June 17-21, June 24-28, and July 1-5). While not affiliated with the Dolphins, the club schedule aligns with the Dolphins schedule and is a great option for families whose girls will participate in the Dolphins. Please contact the organizers directly at [email protected].

A Reminder About Pre-Season Swim Lesson Options

If you are looking for pre-season options to give your swimmer a jumpstart ahead of the summer season, you can find more information on programs here.


We are looking for more volunteers for the 2024 season! Please contact Kelly at [email protected] if you can help out more this season.
