The Long Branch Dolphins Swim Team is a member of the NVSL. During the off- season, the NVSL ranks each of the 102 member teams from 1 to 102 based primarily on swimmers’ times, and then divides the teams, based on these rankings, into 17 Divisions of six teams. This means that the fastest teams are in the lower numbered Divisions and the less competitive teams are in the higher numbered Divisions. This year we are in Division 16 with Pleasant Valley, Parliament, Commonwealth, Village West and Broyhill Crest.
The Long Branch Swim & Racquet Club (LBSRC) owns the facility that we use. Although each member of the swim team pays a fee in order to belong on the team, the pool does not fund the swim team. The swim team is funded through dues paid for each swimmer and fund raising activities. To be a member of the swim team, your family must own a LBSRC membership and meet other Northern Virginia Swimming League (NVSL) criteria.
Having fun is an important part of our summer swim program. Most of the kids do not care if we are in a top division or a bottom division. We would all like to be division champions, but only one team out of six can usually claim this honor. Personal development is what is most important and for a swimmer that means improving your times. We believe that by establishing a healthy environment that encourages the kids to do their best, recognizes their contributions and is fun for the entire family, we will have met our goals.
The mission statement of the NVSL is: To develop in the children affected by this program -- a love for the sport, advanced aquatic skills, teamwork, and the principles of good sportsmanship
