Living Swimming Since 1975
El Delfín de Chiapas was founded in 1975 by two elementary school teachers Amanda Moguel Rodríguez and Salvador Anzueto Rosales. Both Prof. Moguel and Prof. Anzueto practiced competitive sports and wanted to create an aquatic community in the state of Chiapas. They wanted to encourage proper learning of swimming, reduce the number of drownings, and have formative activity for their children as well as other children in the area.
Both founders began to acquire knowledge, training, and certifications in swimming. Professor Amanda Moguel Rodríguez took courses in coaching that were developed by the Olympic Solidarity Program for the training of competitive swimming. Professor Salvador Anzueto Rosales studied Physical Education and was graduated by the Mexican Olympic Committee. Besides being a swimming coach, he became an outstanding athletic coach at college level. Prof. Amanda have continued their training as swimming coach through many congresses and clinics offered to swim coaches in Mexico and other countries over the years.
Thanks to the constant efforts of our founders, El Delfín is now an aquatic community made up of a swimming school, a club and a team with international recognition. This success has been due to the passion of daily and constant work, its programs and methodologies based on fundamental values, research, experiences and study of the stages of development, designed for a teaching that is effective, safe and with a learning process of swimming which is fun for all ages.
