In September, NHRPD Recreation staff recommended to the District Board to lower the registration fees for the swim team in order to help provide some financial relief to our swim team families. On October 11th, theNorth Highlands Recreation and Park District Board of Directors voted unanimously to approve the lowering of fees. The swim team is a family and we are happy to help support one another.

Junior Dolphin Swim Lessons

Take the plunge this spring by participating in the Junior Dolphins swim program. This program is led by qualified instructors and aides to assist students in learning to swim in a safe environment. Class sizes are limited to ensure quality instruction. Each two week sessions contains eight – 25 minute classes.

Students passing Level 2 will be allowed to apply the $50.00 swim lesson fee to the Highlander Dolphin Swim Team fee.


Level 1 (Guppy) – Students learn how to float on their back, blow bubbles, doggy paddle, and alternate arms and legs.
Level 2 (Turtle) – Students are introduced to different strokes, the survival backstroke, and how to properly jump into the pool. As swimmers gain confidence, they work up to swimming half the distance of the swimming pool without assistance.
Level 3 (Dolphin) – Students learn how to properly jump, dive, and retrieve an item from underwater. Students will continue to gain confidence as they practice the fundamental skills of different swim strokes. At the conclusion of this course, students will be able to swim one length of the swimming pool without assistance.
