Our club is a USA Swimming year round competitive swim team offering high quality professional coaching and technique instruction. The goal of our team is to provide every member an opportunity to improve swimming skills and achieve success at his or her level of ability, from novice to international competitor.

All of our coaches, as members of the American Swim Coaches Association, have access to the most comprehensive training and certification program for youth coaches of any sport in the United States. They provide assurances that the time children spend in swimming will be quality time.

Crimson Tide Aquatics, a non profit 501(c)3 club, is run by its elected Board of Directors which meets each month.
        

We are constantly growing and training young swimmers to maintain a well rounded competitive swim team. Thank you for your interest in our team. We are looking forward to meeting you.  Please feel free to ask another member or coach any questions you may have.

 

Mission Statement

Crimson Tide Aquatics is committed to continuing its tradition of competitive swimming excellence.  Through dedication and hard work, each team member is afforded the opportunity to achieve his/her fullest potential as an individual and athlete.  By providing a professional coaching staff, combined with parental commitment, we seek to provide a healthy and motivating environment of enhanced self-esteem and pride in accomplishment.  We expect swimming to be rewarding and fun for all our participants.


Statement of Philosophy

The CTA coaching staff is committed to helping all swimmers in the program reach their maximum potential.  We feel we can do this for swimmers of all ability levels and age ranges.  Naturally, at any given time for many team members, the development of potential will be observed as time improvement in swimming events.  However, we don’t feel that our guidance is limited to this aspect of development.  We want our program to touch their lives in a number of meaningful ways.


We view our job as leading the swimmers on a journey of self-discovery, through the medium of competitive swimming.  There will be ample opportunity for learning how to deal with success and failure, how to set and achieve goals, and how to explore and test one’s limits.

For the younger age groups, our emphasis is placed on teaching proper technique and enjoyment of the sport.  As the swimmers progress to our highest levels, we expect them to be able to commit to the pursuit of excellence and to exhibit good citizenship, leadership, and sportsmanship.  As we accomplish these goals, we are certain that Crimson Tide Aquatics will become more prominent in competitive swimming in our area, and add to the development of each swimmer’s character.
