QCD History

Queen City Dolphins (QCD) is a minority swim team that was established in January 2005 by Rodney Sellars and Marcus Green. At the inception, the team had only 12 swimmers. The team has since increased membership to over 40 swimmers. Queen City Dolphins is a year-round swim team located in Charlotte, North Carolina and practices at the Mecklenburg County Aquatic Center (MCAC).

Rodney Sellars and Marcus Green (QCD coaches and founders) wanted to bring a different type of extracurricular activity for minorities in Metro Charlotte. "I wanted kids to have option other than basketball and football programs. I grew up participating in a lot of sports, and swimming was the program that allowed me to attend college. I'm hoping that kids will be able to excel well enough in swimming to get opportunities for college like I did." says Coach Marcus.

QCD is more than just a swim team. It is a family where parental involvement is essential to the growth and well being of the Team.
