The Trident Swim Foundation seeks to build superior community-based
athletic and academic programs where student athletes can achieve
their personal goals. We emphasize individual and team growth, a
thorough knowledge of swimming, the spirit of sportsmanship, a
healthy lifestyle, and academic excellence. All activities
are offered fee-free.
The Swimmer Scholar Program
The Trident Swim Foundation’s swimming and tutoring
curriculum, the Swimmer Scholar Program, is designed as a
foundation for student success, both before and after
graduation. The Program is based on three core
- Discipline - Through mandatory attendance
at both structured swim practices and afterschool study sessions,
participants will learn the rewards and necessity of hard work in
and out of the pool.
- Self-confidence - Through competition and
academic improvement, participants will better understand their
abilities and their strengths.
- Teamwork - Swimming is both an individual
and a team-based sport and participants will learn how to support
the goals of the team by swimming in meets, both on relays, and in
their individual events.
By emphasizing academics as well as training, the program teaches
the Swimmer Scholars how to apply these same core principles to
their lives in the classroom and beyond.
