Houston Cougar Aquatic Sports, also known as COOG, is a year-round club swimming team that was created by University of Houston's Women's Swimming and Diving Head Coach, Mark Taylor.

COOG swimming is designed for swimmers of all ages and skill levels who are interested in pursuing the sport competitively, improving their swimming strokes, or to get into shape and have some fun. We work with each swimmer individually to achieve their goals, whatever they may be.

Training is offered at two locations, COOG - Central (JCC/Merfish pools in Bellaire) and COOG - South (Williams indoor pool).  The Central location is close to the Medical Center, Midtown, Downtown, West U, Rice University, and the Meyerland area.  The South location serves Friendswood, Clearlake and League City areas.    Each location offers training groups for all swimmers ranging from 5 years old to 105 based on skill level and age.

Our coaches are committed, open, friendly, and have had very prosperous swimming careers with an abundance of swimming knowledge. We believe in coaching to help you achieve your swimming and fitness goals, whether it is to become faster, to work and improve upon stroke technique, or to get into shape.  Check out our training groups to find the one that's right for you.Contact information can be found under each location and registration is offered throughout the season for your convenience.
