Welcome to Alnwick Dolphins, we are a family/volunteer run competitive amateur swimming club who are set up to encourage swimmers from age 7 through to young adult to progress from swimming lessons to being able to compete on a local, regional and national level.

We are open to all potential swimmers to register their interest and will offer places to those who can meet the minimum criteria to be selected for our starter squads as places are limited per squad and should be used to encourage those with most ability.

We also take great pride in our inclusivity at the club and are delighted with the successes achieved by our disabled swimmers who are members of the Blue Fins Squad.  For example, we have a young man with Down's syndrome who competes regularly at a variety of national and international competitions with some success, and his goal is to become a member of the GB Down's Syndrome Swimming Team if he can achieve the required times.  We are working to help him achieve that goal



we are a Swim England Affiliated Amateur Swimming Club
