Welcome to the 2022 Shipley’s Choice Summer Swim Team season! We are so excited to welcome back our returning Dolphins as well as any new swimmers to the team. The Shipley’s Choice Dolphins Swim Team season runs from June through the end of July. All bondholder children (age 5 by August 31, 2022) that can swim the length of the pool unassisted (or come close) are welcome to join.
Online registration will open May 1, 2022 and run through June 1, 2022. Those registering after June 1st will be charged a $25.00 late fee and will not be eligible for the complimentary team t-shirt. The FINAL day to register with late fees will be Sunday, June 12, 2022 at 11:59pm … NO EXCEPTIONS.

Swim Meets will be in person this year! We will use the same team suit as last year. To purchase a new suit or to size-up, there will be a Team Suit Fitting at the Clubhouse on May 4th and 5th from 6:00-8:00pm. Sizes and quantities are limited! If there is not a suit in your size to purchase, a plain navy suit option will be available. Team swim caps will also be available for purchase.
Time Trials and Swim Meets will be held on Saturday mornings starting June 18th, and the season concludes the last week in July. A detailed schedule of home and away meets can be found on our team Facebook page (search “Shipley’s Choice Dolphins Swim Team” to join) and will also be announced in future Pool Board email blasts.
We have a team Facebook page and will continue to post updates and team info – log onto Facebook and search “Shipley’s Choice Dolphins Swim” to join!
Practices will run during the week and swimmers will be grouped by age. A finalized practice schedule will be made available by May 15th.
Evening practices will begin June 6th (M-Th in the PM) and will convert to morning practices beginning June 27th (M-F in the AM).
In addition to becoming amazing swimmers, the kids will also enjoy fun social events such as the Pizza Party, Fun Fridays, Pancake Breakfast, Spirit Week, and the End of Season Banquet.
The Shipley’s Choice Dolphins will swim in Division IV of the Central Maryland Swim League (CMSL). Colleen Cahoon is back as Head Coach and will be alongside Assistant Coaches Patrick Damanti, Eliza Patty, Nathan Damanti, Mary Feliz, and Tess Donegan, as well as our Junior Coaches Keelie Begin, Sean Monahan, Matthew Zimmerman, and Lucy Feliz.
