About BTA

 


BTA Mission Statement:"The Mission of Blue Tide Aquatics is to promote and create an environment in which every swimmer, regardless of ability, is encouraged to meet his/her potential in swimming through a planned progression of learning objectives and skill groups. These include goal setting, life skills, and the pursuit of excellence."

WHO WE ARE:Blue Tide Aquatics is a nationally-recognized swim club located in northeast Houston, TX. Founded in 1980, Blue Tide is the oldest and most-established swim club in the area. Blue Tide is a Level 4USA Swimmingaffiliated club and is a member of Gulf Swimming, one of five Texas Local Swimming Committees (LSCs). Blue Tide is a member of the Texas Swimming Association, which oversees the Texas State Age Group Championships (TAGS) and the Texas Senior Circuit.

OUR MEMBERSHIP:Blue Tide’s membership lives primarily in the northeast Houston communities of Kingwood, Humble and Atascocita. The majority of our swimmers ages 5-18 attend schools in the Humble Independent School District. Many of our senior swimmers are also members of the Kingwood High School, Kingwood Park High School and Atascocita High School swim teams.   We continue to welcome back our college swimmers during their seasonal breaks.

IT'S NOT ALL SWIMMING:Blue Tide swimmers work hard, but have fun too: at team banquets, team parties, group breakfasts and social outings and annual summer training trips away from the Houston area.   In recent years, our team has visited Coronado Island, California for long course training and time enjoying each other’s company outside of the water.

 


Team History
Kingwood Blue Tide Aquatics was founded in October of 1980 with approximately 30 swimmers.  The team’s first practices were held outdoors in the Forest Cove pool but were later moved to theKingwoodHigh School natatorium. In 1982, the team’s name was shortened to Blue Tide Aquatics.   The 1984-85 season saw another change as BTA became affiliated with the Spring and Klein area teams to form Aqua-Tex, enabling the team to be more competitive in theHouston swimming community.         
 
Due to the large number of swimmers registering with ATEX-BTA, it was decided in March 1991, by a vote of the general membership, to return to independent status as Blue Tide Aquatics.  In order to accommodate the growing program, BTA expanded into the Humble High School pool in 1994, the Riverchase community pool in 1997, the YMCA pool in 1999, and the Atascocita Country Club pool in 2004.    Currently, our swimmers train at Kingwood High School and Kingwood Park High School.  

Blue Tide Aquatics was incorporated under the laws of the state ofTexas in 1996 and is now officially known as "Blue Tide Aquatics, Inc." or "BTA".
