One of the highlights of the short course swim season for the Montclair YMCA Dolphins Swim Team is the SunKissed Invitational Junior/Senior Swimming Championships of the USA, which are held each Spring at the Mecklenburg County Aquatic Center in Charlotte, North Carolina. For Dolphin swimmers, achieving the necessary qualifying times for the meet and attending for the first time is a rite of passage as they grow into stronger and faster swimmers.
