The training philosophy at SCSC can be summed up as “Progressive Adaptation.” The science behind this mode of training is not new. The adaptive philosophy is a proven method, and is the strategy of choice among the top swim clubs in the nation.
The SCSC training program is unique in that we train swimmers for the long term by teaching both swimming skills and life skills. Our goal is for swim careers to extend throughout high school, college and beyond, and for each swimmer to emerge from swimming having mastered the important life skills needed to be successful beyond the pool.
The SCSC coaching staff recognizes and embraces the different developmental phases of our swimmers, from age group through young adulthood, and progressively adapts training to best meet needs at each level. The underlying foundation for our physical training program is built upon core values that include: a hard work ethic, goal setting, tenacity, not being defeated by failure, joy found in effort, good sportsmanship, personal responsibility, health, striving for personal excellence and the value of the journey.
