We strive to maintain a positive yet challenging training and teaching environment for swimmers to develop self-esteem, pride and discipline in both team and individual achievements. The coaching staff encourages and believes that positive competition provides each individual great experiences and valuable lessons that continue beyond the pool!

The coaches will design each workout for swimmers to build endurance and focus on proper techniques in all of the competitive strokes.

Registration for the swim team will be on a first come first served basis and we will NOT have try-outs for this program.
