The FISH Swim Team is a USA Swimming Club, founded by Executive Director Ray Benecki. Coach Ray started the team in 1991 at Spring Hill RECenter in McLean, VA. Spring Hill has been the home of the FISH ever since. Our second site, Audrey Moore at Wakefield Park, was added in 2009. Since then, the team has grown to over 350 members. Most families live in Northern Virginia.
In 2015 the team received the Silver Medal Club status awarded by USA Swimming, a status reserved only for the top 100 clubs in the country.
In 2012 the team received the Bronze Medal Club status awarded by USA Swimming, a status reserved to only quality clubs in the nation.
In 2009 the team received the highest honor of Gold Medal Club status awarded by USA Swimming, a status reserved to only very few clubs in the country.
The FISH Mission:
The team's mission is to develop a swimmer into the best swimmer she or he can be and at the same time, we encourage the pursuit of excellence, while nurturing a love for the sport of swimming, and developing the values and skills for success in life along the way.
