About Us

The North Miami Swim team has provided a variety of aquatic activities for North Dade county for more than 40 years. The swimmers and athletes come from a wide range of backgrounds and areas and represent a tremendous range of skills and abilities.

Our program begins with our Learn to Swim Program. In this program we introduce swimmers to water safety in ‘a learn to swim’ environment. This last year we taught more than 200 students to swim in our Learn to Swim Program. Most of the swimmers were in the age range of three to ten.

For individuals that have mastered the skills covered in the pre-team program we have our ‘Fish’ group. It is at this level that we begin to teach the four competitive strokes and introduce the participants to competition. We have organized a league of several pools that run what we like to call "Fun Meets" where everyone wins a ribbon every swim. We emphasize sportsmanship and personal improvement. Often the team will have an ice-cream party for all the swimmers who improved their times. We hope to introduce competition where trying to win is important but Doing your best is what is rewarded the most.

From Fish the swimmers can then move onto a series of groups each one requiring more work and commitment and hopefully greater rewards. At the top side of our program we have been very fortunate to have a long list of successful swimmers. Many compete for their local high schools and some have even won state titles ( This year many swimmers competing at the high school level qualified for an FHSAA State swim meet which takes only the fastest swimmers in each event from an entire district.) Many have gone to collage on scholarships. It is very pleasing to see the number of swimmers who have found employment using the skills developed during our time together as either lifeguards, coaches, aquatic instructors or other occupation benefiting from the discipline of swimming.

Our team travels throughout the state and Nation representing our community at meets like  Sectionals and Senior Nationals which deal with the top 3% of the swimmers in the entire nation.

It stays very important to us not to exclude any swimmer based on ability.

We also try to maintain an active masters program for those adults who wish to either continue competition or just wish to stay fit or get back in shape.
