Who are we?

We are Sweden’s first LBGTQ-swim club. We welcome swimmers who are LGBTQ themselves and allies who want to swim with us. 

Become a member

You need to be able to swim app. 200 m freestyle before you start swimming with us. 

In the fall of 2022 we arrange a freestyle course for women, nonbinary and trans people, and sometimes we arrange other courses for you who cannot swim freestyle yet, but want to learn. Read more about our courses here.

You can come and try to swim with us 3 times before you pay the membership fee. We will also make sure you have the required skills to have a fun time swimming with us. 

Send an email to info@stockholmdolphins.se to get all the info you need to come to try out Stockholm Dolphins!

Our workouts are mostly bilingual in both Swedish and English. Many of our swimmers are also trilingual, which means a very diverse set of languages in the club. Knowledge of Swedish is therefore not a requirement.

Practices

We generally practice on Tuesdays and Thursdays (21.00-22.00) and Sundays (16.30-18.00) at Eriksdalsbadet on Södermalm. But have a look at the updated calendar to be on the safe side.

The yearly membership fee is 500 kr.

International visitors from other clubs

We gladly invite active swimmers from our partner clubs who are visiting Sweden and Stockholm to join us for swimming practice.

If you are an active member in one of our partner clubs, i.e. clubs affiliated with either the International Gay and Lesbian Aquatics Association (IGLA) and/or the European Gay and Lesbian Sport Federation (EGLSF), you are very welcome.

Our current training session calendar can be found here.

If you find a session that would suit your visit, please reach out to info@stockholmdolphins.se so that we can arrange a fellow Dolphin to meet and guide you through the training session.

We also kindly ask you to provide some sort of validation of your club membership in your e-mail.
