Flyers Swim Club is a non-profit and independent youth
organization, self-funded through membership fees and fundraising
activities. The club is a registered member of USA Swimming,
Inc., which is the only national governing body of amateur swimming
in the U.S.
program teaches competitive swimming skills to area children ages
6-18. The Flyers maintain an emphasis at "entry level" which
means we keep the fun in swimming for your children. The
Flyers staff encourages participation without pressure. They
will teach and explain with detail, motivate with reassurance, and
challenge for improvements. The Flyers program is based on
the philosophy of attracting kids to the pool, offering
opportunities to learn, and then developing excellence through
practice, experience and guidance.
The program was created in the summer of 1991 by a few parents
and coaches who saw a need for an entry-level competitive swim
club, a type of "little league" for the sport. With an
abundance of recreational water activities in the area and three
school districts in close proximity with their own pools, teams and
swimming curriculum, it was clear that our children could benefit
from an organized program dedicated to teaching and having fun.
It grew rapidly to over 100 swimmers each season and we were
able to acquire enough time at the Queensbury School district pool
to accommodate four levels of practice groups. Our
intra-squad swim meets have been a staple of the development of our
swimmers' skills and confidence as well as for the experience and
knowledge of our parents. As the progression of skills
developed confidence, members experienced success in competition
and personal growth through hard work and the comraderie of a team.
our coaches have extensive competitive experience and some started
their careers with the Flyers! Our group head coaches attend
an annual national coaches clinic and continually learn and
reaffirm their knowledge of the latest trends and news in the world
of competitive swimming. Our staff is hand-picked to fit the
mission of the Flyers program and meet the needs of all members.
encourage parents to approach our staff with questions or concerns,
or for updates on your swimmer's progress. Feel free to ask
questions of any of our staff members. There are no
embarrassing questions whether you are a new family or veteran
family to the sport and the program. Remember, we're here to
teach your swimmer and you!
