On behalf of the Dolphin Board, thank you for the overwhelming response to the survey we sent out last week. The feedback provided was invaluable and the responses were significantly in favor of opening the pool even if a delayed opening.
We met as a board this past Monday and will continue meeting weekly to prepare for opening the pool this summer. We have been reviewing and preparing safety mitigation plans to the best of our ability as final guidance will come from the Vineland Department of Health and the Governor of New Jersey. We are hopeful based on the recent guidelines for beaches opening that we will have guidance soon for pools.
John Casadia, our pool manager, has been prepping the pool for opening as we plan to request certification from the Department of Health this coming week.
We would like to thank Sam Casaboon, Bubba Byer, Danny Merighi, Marc Bennett, Giavanna Lupi, Jenna Carastro, Dominick Sheppard and Johnny Gallo for assisting Coach in prepping and cleaning the pool and pool grounds yesterday. This group has always been a great help to the pool and volunteered their time yesterday to assist Dolphin.
I will continue to provide weekly updates on the status of the pool opening as we receive guidance from state and local officials.

Note to Swim Team
May 16, 2020
Dear Dolphin Swim Team Families,
Given the current and ever-changing situation of COVID-19, I wanted to update you on the current status of the swim team for the Summer 2020 season.
I hope that everyone is well and safe as we all navigate through this time of "unknowns" and "uncertainties".
I wanted to reach out to you with an update regarding swim team for the summer. Should the Dolphin Swim and Athletic Club open for the summer season, the Dolphin Swim Team WILL TRAIN.
What the season will look like will be dependent on the criteria set forth by state and local municipal officials, as well as the Suburban Swim League (SSA) as it relates to head to head meets versus inter-squad types of meets etc.
I will strive to keep you up to date and relay the swim team plans to you as soon as possible, keeping in mind that updates are occurring on a daily basis and plans are based on these updates.
I hope to see all of you soon and know that I am doing my best to ensure that the team can get in the water quickly and safely.
If you have any questions, please contact me via email at
