Our Mission
To develop the character traits, technical skills and intense desire necessary for maximizing each individual's potential.

The Team philosophy is encompassed in the words
“Empowering Champions in Life”.
Empowering is providing and encouraging a young athlete to embrace the opportunities and not fear the outcome.

Courage is the willingness to accept risk and endure failings.

Perseverance is the backbone of success in any endeavor in life. Perseverance allows young people to transcend the most difficult times of adolescence. It allows the individual to find the true inner strength of their character. 

Through Courage and Perseverance ,each swimmer can become a "Champion"in their own right.
