Be part of one of the oldest recreational swim and dive teams in Johnson County. The Merriam Dolphins have been "kickin' and flippin'" since 1963 and they want you! The Dolphins program is sponsored by the City of Merriam and competes in the Johnson County Municipal Swim and Dive League. Swimmers must be able to swim at least 25 yards (width of the pool). Merriam residency is not required to participate. Season runs June 1 - July 13. Download the Dolphins Handbook.
