Dolphin Swim School

40+ Years of Experience in Training Successful Swimmers

Experience the Dolphin difference
with SSI and comfort through repetition!

Dolphin was originally established as a swim school in 1974.

Dolphin Swim School is proud to have worked with families in the greater Sacramento area for more than 45 years. We are excited to partner with Swim Schools International in order to bring a well structured and modern water safety, learn to swim curriculum to our families. Our indoor heated pool allows us to offer several year-round programs that include a variety of aquatic based classes and activities. Programs begin with students as young as six months, learning to be comfortable in the water then swimming with confidence and proficiency. We have no age limit as swimmers look to expand their enjoyment of more advanced water based sports like snorkeling, free diving, and S.C.U.B.A. Certified Dolphin Swim Teachers are caring, patient, and highly trained in order to teach a variety of efficient small group and private classes.
