About KWSC

 

We are a not-for-profit organization run by volunteers, who have made a commitment to promote the well-being of families and our community through the sport of competitive swimming.  We are active participating members of Oregon Swimming, Inc (OSI), a Local Swim Committee (LSC) of USA-Swimming.

Our team is open to all youth and adults in our community who are interested in and willing to learn how to become a more efficient and stronger swimmer, and an effective teammate.  We have professional coaches who create an atmosphere that is safe, fun and educational for all levels of swimming.

Today, we gaze at the Mona Lisa and the statue of David as phenomenal works rendered by singular geniuses, and we pay little mind to the gritty human process behind their creation. In so doing, though, we often overlook what may be the central cultural lesson of great achievement: that it is rooted in comparison and rivalry. “Every natural gift must develop itself by contests,” wrote Nietzsche. While we tend to think of achievement as an individual phenomenon, no human is an island. At its essence, humanity is a social and competitive enterprise. We learn from one another, share with one another, and constantly compare and compete with one another for affection, accomplishment, and resources.

--The Genius In All Of Us, by David Shenk
