Carolina Swim Club
The Lowcountry’s Finest:
Charleston is known for it's home-grown excellence in many ways.
We're home-grown in that we smile at each other, we live relaxed
lives, we enjoy good food and drink, we respect our beautiful
beaches, and we look after our communities. We're excellent in that
in addition to this nurturing, laid-back lifestyle, we excel at
everything we put our effort toward.
South Carolina Swim Club epitomizes the spirit of Charleston in
both of these ways. It's easy to forget as we're all snacking and
laughing together after practice, but we're the Lowcountry's
finest, one of the top competitive swim teams in the state, and
even the whole United States. We believe that this Charleston
spirit is what sets us apart: we're a big family, full of fun and
love, and we're also the best family.

The Best Family: Born for
Within its very first year of existence, SCSC was already named one
of the top USA Swimming programs in the nation, earning Bronze
Medal status in the USA Swimming Club Excellence program.
Additionally, SCSC continued to earn its stripes through
back-to-back State Championship titles in its first two seasons. We
credit our success to the home-grown excellence mentioned above,
and more specifically to many tried-and-true methods of
instruction. Because SCSC’s practice groups are organized by
age, experience, and ability within these age groups, swimmers are
able to train specifically to their needs through finely-tuned
instruction. The SCSC Full-Time Coaches commit 100% of their time,
energy, and resources to providing the most up-to-date,
professional instruction in the sport of swimming*. Using visual
examples, video demonstration, and kinesthetic instruction, the
coaches effectively equip athletes with knowledge and skills to set
them up for a lifetime enjoyment in the sport.
*not pictured here: dedicated meetings and literally hundreds
of emails between the coaching staff discussing new techniques,
swimming videos, world-record races, scholarly athletic studies,
South Carolina Swim Club began in 2016 as a merger of two existing
swim teams, the Mount Pleasant Swim Club (MPSC), and the LTP Racing
Club in Mount Pleasant, SC. Swimmers train in four pools located in
Mount Pleasant and North Charleston, SC. Having both short-course
and long-course pools allows SCSC to train swimmers at all
levels, all year round.
The legacy Mount Pleasant Swim Club was established over a
decade ago as part of the local recreation department. MPSC became
a parent-governed team in 2013. The legacy LTP Racing Club began in
2012 and also grew in size and recognition throughout the swim
community for offering technique instruction for all ages.
