"Our Coaching Staff has been involved in most aspects of this terrific sport most of our entire lives. We consistently support and guide each student-athlete to achieve his or her personal goals socially, academically, and athletically. Enthusiastically, through planned and organized practices, we properly develop and educate swimmers of all levels and abilities. Consistent discipline competing. We provide a goal-oriented environment where swimmers are taught to be realistic, yet set challenging goals for meets and relate these goals to every practice. We encourage our swimmers, whatever their level of ability, to strive to become the best swimmers and people they can be. Each of our swimmers remain inspired to pursue excellence- both in and out of the pool. From teaching individuals how to swim, helping our remarkable swimmers to achieve lifetime best times, always educating and promoting dedication, enthusiasm, and commitment, to coaching swimmers to become top-level athletes as well as outstanding people- we take great pride in what we do. Swimming is a lifelong, lifesaving activity that has taken place for thousands of years throughout the world- we should continue to embrace and cherish it!" - Coach McNear
