5th October 2018
Tesco at Queensbury have kindly agreed to let us raise some money by holding a bag packing session. All funds raised will come to Dolphins and be used on our swimmers. 

This will take place on Saturday 3rd Nov from 10am until 4pm. I need at least 4 swimmers per hour to ensure this event is a success. Parents don`t need to stay but are welcome if they wish. All Dolphins need to wear a Dolphins t-shirt or hoodie etc on the day. 

It would be appreciated if you can let me know if you/your child will be helping and a time slot, so I can draw up a rota. Time slots are for an hour from 10 but longer is always welcome. Please email victoriaoverend@btinternet.com.

The club would like to remind all parents/ carers that during Gala Competitions only those swimmers competing in the competition, Coaches and appointed Team Managers are allowed poolside. There are instances where the Club may request volunteers to support the running of the Gala. The club will authorise these individuals to join the Team Manager poolside and will be under their supervision for the duration of the Gala.

Any individual on poolside without the Clubs authorisation will be requested to move to the spectators seating area immediately. This is in line with the clubs child safeguarding policy.

Bradford Dolphin S.C. is run by volunteers who give up huge amounts of their spare time to help coach, plan and organise training sessions, competitions, social events to name a few from the long list of tasks. Without the support from these individuals the club would not exist.

To that end, we are always keen to have more involvement and support from Parents (whether coaching/helping or also supporting a multitude of other Club related tasks).

If there any parents who would be willing to help out with admin tasks, communications, gala organisation, coaching, then please step forward (contact any of the coaches or committee members at training).

We currently have a vacancy for a Championship Secretary which we’d like to fill ASAP – the job description is available on the Facebook & here.

The success of the club is built on utilising many, many empowered and energised individuals and the more people we get to contribute; the better the club will be!

We are all committed to making Bradford Dolphin S.C. one of the best Amateur Swimming clubs in the country and we welcome your involvement going forward.



20th August 2018
A recent Bradford T&A report dated 7th August’18 has been brought to our attention that relates to an individual installing cameras within the toilet areas at Richard Dunn Sport Centre & Tong School. Our Club had not previously been made aware of this incident or ongoing Police investigation by either Bradford Council or Tong School. The individual may have been in attendance during the clubs training sessions at Tong School over recent years. The club has requested a formal statement from both organisations to understand what risks our members may have been exposed to & over what period of time the offence took place. Once we have further information the club will issue a further update. The club is also requesting the support from the ASA in dealing with this matter. A formal complaint will also be made to West Yorkshire Police asking why our club had not be made aware of their investigations. If you would like to speak to any member of the committee, please send an e-mail to secretary@bradford-dolphin.co.uk & a member of the Committee will contact you directly.
