Welcome to King Marlin Swim Club!

We are a year-round competitive swim program through USA Swimming that provides all swimmers from novice to Olympic hopefuls the opportunity to improve swimming skills and attain success at each swimmer’s highest level of ability.

We believe that each swimmer is unique and will improve at his/her own rate. Therefore, we provide a positive, supportive, and fun environment that enables each swimmer to focus on reaching their personal best. Additionally, we have a staff of assistants who are committed to our athletes, whether they are former swimmers who have returned to the program or coaches who have coached countless years in the area. 

King Marlin Swim Club is proud of its influence and ties within the Oklahoma City swimming community, as all of our head coaching staff has combined to compete and coach in the area for more than 50 years with the former Kerr-McGee and Chesapeake swim clubs.

Our mission today is to create a culture for fun, fast competitive swimming in an inclusive program that builds character and develops life skills. We believe the value of swimming far exceeds a swimmer’s accomplishments in the pool!

Our team history

In 2014, the Chesapeake Swim Club lost its funding from its corporate sponsor and was forced to make some changes. Then current CEO/Head Coach John Brown along with fellow coaches Kathy Mendez and Josh Everett decided to pursue their vision for a coach-owned swim team. The coaches believed this structure would ensure stability and continuity for their athletes and families. The King Marlin Swim Club then emerged.

The club is supported by its parents through the KMSC Booster Club, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
