Swim

At Irish Aquatics, our team of swimmers, coaches and families truly embraces a love of all things swimming. Our coaching staff is dedicated to teaching the fundamentals of the sport and developing each swimmer throughout his or her career. Every member is valued and supported at every level and every member makes a difference. We strive to create a safe and positive learning environment in the pool where swimmers become dedicated, independent and goal oriented individuals who come together for the common interests of the team.

Fight:

As a team, we fight to challenge ourselves in the pool and to do our best every time. As individuals, we fight for our beliefs and for others in our community. We encourage and motivate our swimmers are proud of their accomplishments, both in and out of the pool- our classroom for teaching the skills required for swimming and life. 

Win:

We understand that winning is much more than coming in first place, and we are committed to helping each individual grow in skill, character and physical development. We believe that our swimmers should celebrate every win, whether learning a new stroke or qualifying for a championship meet. As a team, we celebrate our milestones and support each other in all ways possible to achieve those "wins." Our top priority is to make each swimmer a champion in all endeavors. Across all groups, we strive to instill confidence, knowledge and strength in our members so that these pillars of character can be carried throughout life.
