I will make announcements in this article about returning to swim at Bullard HS as there is any new news. The Bullard Aquatics Complex was opened to Bullard students only on Monday, June 29, 2020. FDST is considered an outside organization by Fresno Unified. I have petitioned to be considered a “partner organization” because I believe that more accurately describes our relationship with FUSD. As of this time, we are considered an outside organization.
FDST will continue to offer limited swimming for our youngest team members at America’s Kids in Motion Swim Center and our M,W,F dry land and T, Th Millerton Lake swims. We will all work hard to wear face masks where appropriate and possible and maintain social separation of 6 feet or more.
This is a tough time for all of us. As I get definite updates from FUSD I will pass them along immediately.
This aquatic award is given in honor of Mr. Jim Orr, a parent who has worked to promote the sport of swimming in the Central Valley and who worked tirelessly as a volunteer official for the Fresno Dolphins Swim Team. Mr. Orr is a role model of the FDST philosophy of COURAGE and PERSEVERANCE. FDST believes that COURAGE and PERSEVERANCE developed through swimming will prepare the individual for the challenges they will face in life.
A blank application is linked below. Apllications are due to Coach Klatt by May 31, 2020.

Great job Dolphins! Complete individual event results are linked below. Splits for each 50 are included. Way to get behind one another. Very nice team spirit!
Please remember that improvement stats are only times performed beyond September 1, 2019. Great team effort!

Both individual and relay results are linked below. There are some relay splits which are not accurate because a swimmer may have climbed out of the water after the 15 second touch pad delay had expired. Great job in the meet Dolphins! Thank you to all our volunteer parents who hauled canopies, served as meet officials and worked as lane timers during the meet. Your help is greatly appreciated!
