Due to bridge repairs Route 81 southbound travelers will not be able to get to the farm via Exit 199. Your options are either proceed to Exit 201, get off the interstate and re-enter the interstate traveling northbound back to Exit 199. Take 524 west and follow the signs to the farm. The second option is to get off at Exit 197 Waverly, turn left onto Route 632 west, travel 2.2 miles to Miller Road, turn right and follow the signs to the farm.

BDA GOES TO EASTERN STATES SWIM CLINIC

BLUE DOLPHIN SWIMMERS,

Get ready to learn from the best and attend the Eastern States Swim Clinic on Oct. 10-11 at the Crowne Plaza in Cherry Hill, NJ. All information about the clinic, is available here: http://swimclinic.com/eastern-states-swim-clinic-2/
It is a great clinic for all.

  • *If you are a Platinum swimmer, we will be attending as a team together. All you have to do is commit by sending in $150 fee made out to Blue Dolphin Aquatics by Sept 26th, 2015. (We will not deposit the checks till a couple days before we leave for the clinic.) We will provide all the rest such as transportation and rooms as we hit the road together on our first team trip of the season. We have some planned fun along the way as well.
  • The plan at the moment is to head out after weights on Friday, October 9th, 2015 and return home the evening of the 11th. The only change to those plans would be to travel on the early morning of the 10th instead if that suits us better. (more info will be passed out on this later.) Any questions please contact the coaches.

The 2015 Clinic proudly offers the following prestigious lineup of speakers and the special opportunity to meet and work with Olympic swimmers Mike Alexandrov, Josh Davis, Andrew Gemmell and Dana Vollmer:
