Club North Swimming,
Inc., located in the northern part of the Kansas City, MO metro
area, is a year round swim club offering high quality professional
coaching and technique instruction for all children under the age
of 18 regardless of ability. One of our goals is to be a community
swim team that focuses on affordable training of young
swimmers. Additionally, our team strives to provide every
member an opportunity to improve swimming skills and achieve
success at his or her level of ability, from novice, to state
qualifier, to international competitor.
The majority of our
members are from the Kansas City metro area. 100% of our time
is devoted to instructing and teaching children to swim, the
techniques to make them successful not only in the water but in
life as well. Coaches emphasize proper exercise, nutrition,
and responsible lifestyles choices as a holistic approach for our
athletes. We believe that by combining these positive
attributes in our members, they will become leaders and productive
members of our community.
All of our coaches, as
members of the American Swimming Coaches Association, have access
to the most comprehensive training and certification program for
youth coaches of any sport in the United States.
We are funded by the
contributions from our members and the public, fundraisers which we
conduct ourselves, swim meets, events that we sponsor ourselves,
and spirit wear sales.
