Our philosophy is having fun is the most important thing we can do. Most of the kids don't care if we're in a top division or a bottom division. We'd all like to be division champions, which usually means going undefeated, but only one team out of six can usually claim this honor. Personal development is what is most important; for a swimmer that means improving your times. We believe that by establishing a healthy environment that encourages the kids to do their best, recognizes their contributions, and is fun for the entire family, we will have met our goals.

We've all taken our kids to soccer or other sports and probably stood by as two or three parents ran the team. Swimming isn't like that. It takes many parent volunteers to run a typical meet, and that doesn't include pool set up and tear down, running the snack bar, or team social activities.

Swimming is unique in that there's a place on the team for anyone eighteen or younger who can swim without assistance. How many other sports have kids five years old to eighteen years old on the same team participating in the same competition?
