 We have a few spaces now in the beginners groups: 
 Thursdays at 4.45pm; Saturdays at 4.00pm; Sundays at 4.00pm 

The Dolphins have a policy of continuous movement between groups throughout the year as performances improve.  Most groups take Personal Survival awards at their level of ability.

All Dolphins groups operate according to ability and not age and I will always listen to appeals for "promotion".   Please let me know if you are unhappy with any of the arrangements; I try to be as accommodating as possible - but can't always be perfect!

As a general recommendation, children progress noticeably better if they have two sessions a week - it gives them less time to forget in between!  A very few can benefit from more if it appears beneficial to their development
