The Dolphin class is held at the deeper end of the pool in a larger class area with far greater emphasis being placed on technique in freestyle and backstroke.

Breaststroke arms and dolphin kick with the use of fins are introduced, and a higher degree of fitness is encouraged by having the pupil swim greater distances.

This class builds on water safety skills with the extension of floating and treading water skills and the introduction of elementary backstroke arms.

Dolphin swimmers are encouraged to attempt the State Swim Challenge.
