Peace Haven Dolphins Swim Team
Please visit the Calendar to see Practice & Meet Times!
The Peace Haven Dolphins is a youth swim team representing the Peace Haven Pool in the Old Sherwood Forest neighborhood. Our team includes swimmers between the ages of 5 and 18. We encourage good sportsmanship, individual improvement, and the enjoyment of competing as a team. Most of all, we want everyone to have fun!
The Peace Haven Pool is located at 420 Hearthside Drive in Winston-Salem. This 25-meter, 6 lane pool is where the Dolphins practice and host GFSL swim meets. Parking, concessions and a playground are available at all swim meets.
The Peace Haven Dolphins are one of 19 teams within the Greater Forsyth Swim League (GFSL). Our annual swim meet schedule includes 3 home and 3 away swim meets against one other GFSL team. There is also a city-wide meet during the summer. Swimmers compete in Freestyle, Backstroke, Breaststroke and Butterfly (ages 6 & under Freestyle and Backstroke only) and a full range of events. The GFSL hosts a Finals meet at the end of the season at the Greensboro Aquatic Center for the season’s top performers from all 19 teams.
Our team colors are Royal Blue with a Kelly Green complement. We encourage swimmers to compete in swimwear that coordinates with our colors, though it is not required. All team members will receive a Peace Haven Dolphins t-shirt before the season. Wear this to all swim meets for team unity!
