Founded in 2008
by Head Coach, Marisa Watts Cozort, Swim South Bay is the
"boutique" team of the South Bay. Through coaching, running
swim lessons, teaching and being a parent herself, Marisa created a
team in which she would WANT to put her own children into.
BAY caters to the needs of the busy Bay Area family; to those who
want to "try out" being on a swim team, to those who have made our
sport a part of their family life, and everyone in between!

life. Our staff believes there is more to life
than swimming and we encourage our athletes to experience all
it has to offer. We hope our swimmers learn to love our sport
just as much as we do, but encourage them to live beyond the
pool. There are ways to maintain a healthy balance of
family, school, faith and sports. BAY provides one path while
helping your children learn, grow and excel in swimming. Many
of our swimmers have already found swimming to be their
“calling” and have BIG goals ahead of them. We
