Mission: The Arizona Desert Dolphins are committed to creating an atmosphere where everyone is welcome, regardless of age, ability or commitment level. Striving to open the eyes of young athletes so that they see a higher potential in themselves than they may have previously thought. Our goal is to inspire them to see the greatness of Synchronized Swimming, not just as a sport, but as a vehicle for teaching powerful lessons and important qualities that will apply to many other aspects of their lives. Synchronized swimming can give athletes the confidence to set goals, as well as the confidence to work hard to attain those goals, whatever those goals may be, and whether those goals be in Synchro, or not. Achieving these goals is not always easy. Each of us — athlete, parent and coach has a different role to play in achieving these goals. By achieving their goals, the athletes will be winners for the rest of their lives.

It's safe, coaches are encouraging the girls to do their best always. AZD has great organizational support from the parents, their involment in the group makes it a difference.
