The Dolphin Difference
Lowest Coach-to-Swimmer Ratio
The lowest coach-to-swimmer ratio that we’re aware of in Montgomery County.
Swimmers of All Ages
The ability for siblings of different ages and skill levels to learn or train at the same time.
Coaching tailored to all personality types, from scared and shy to overconfident.
A flexible schedule is very important to keep swimmers in the pool where they belong.
On-site videotaping for stroke technique analysis.
Special Needs Friendly
Swimmers with special needs are warmly welcomed.
The heart of JFD is our swim team, which competes from September through July. Our coaches work with swimmers to improve their times in competitive swimming and prepare them for competition.
The JFD swim lesson program offers instruction to non-swimmers of all ages. We utilize the SwimAmerica Learn to Swim program, designed by the American Swim Coaches Association (ASCA) to motivate and reward each swimmer as their skills improve.
JFD stroke clinics are for athletes who want to focus on refining their swimming technique. Many of our participants are preparing for summer league swimming, are working on specific aspects of their strokes for time reduction, or who are interested in swimming for fitness.
JFD runs a comprehensive program that trains coaches of all ages how to use the SwimAmerica Learn to Swim methodology. JFD also employs many of these coaches to provide lesson and stroke clinic instruction.
