The Chantilly Highlands Dolphins Swim Team is accepting applications to expand its coaching

spirit! We are looking for hardworking, collegial, motivated, enthusiastic and engaging
individuals to lead our swimmers of all ages and ability levels and who will create a positive

by an Assistant Head Coach, who jointly manage several other junior coaches.
