Celebrating 50 Years
This year the Hanarry West Dolphins Swim Team celebrates its 50th season – making it the second oldest team in the Gwinnett County Swim League. We hope to celebrate all season long, but have a few special items already in the works, including a celebration event at the pool, a next 50 years fundraiser, and special 50th anniversary spirit wear.
The Dolphins ended the 2023 season with an 8th place finish at the Gwinnett County Meet (the team's highest finish in 20 years) and received the Margaret Gilbert Award for Best Team Sportsmanship. With head coach Eric Brown returning to lead the team, we are excited for another great season. Check the website Calendar for 2024 season dates, and the News section for information about the upcoming season.
About the Hanarry West Swim Team
Started in 1974 and located in Lilburn, the Hanarry West Swim Team is a summer program within the Gwinnett County Swim League, which has 43 teams and more than 6,500 swimmers. Hanarry West averages 130 swimmers each year, welcoming kids of all experience levels from ages 5-18.
Registration begins in March and the season runs from May through June, with meets most often on Thursday nights. The swim season is a fast-paced two month and also a wonderful opportunity for families to engage in a sport together. Hanarry West is a volunteer-led and run organization (only coaches are paid) and the season couldn't happen without parent involvement -- from staffing meets to leading social events to season planning. Summer swim is truly a family sport.
