Pitchfork Aquatics :


Spring Training isn't just for Baseball! Beginning in April, we will be conducting a monthly Starts and Turns clinic in partnership with Hubbard Swim School to coincide with the Spring League swimming meets for beginners. More info to be posted soon

We also look forward to fast swimming at the Senior and Age Group State meets, 8 and Under Championships, and Speedo Sectionals in March.

Stop by the ASU pool to meet the coaches, see the facility, and get an evaluation for placement on our team.

Ask about our partnership with Hubbard Family Swim School for learn to swim lessons, and Swim Devil Masters for adult swim training for fitness, competition, triathlons, and Crosswim.

Is your swimmer tired of sharing a lane with 10 (or more) swimmers during practice? We have LOTS of room and provide more personalized coaching to every swimmer. Our athletes performance in and out of the pool speaks for itself.

CONGRATULATIONS to the Gold and Copper Group for their FIRST PLACE COMBINED TEAM place finish at the 2018 AZ Senior Open LC Championship Meet. It is our first time for a first place finish in a meet (and we did it in only 2-1/2 years!).

What are the Top 3 reasons to join the PITCHFORK AQUATICS Swim Nation?

1) Performance - we are the only swim team with a Club Excellence Program at the "Silver Level" in the East Valley, consistently capturing high points and top 10 team finishes in most meets we attend - with fewer swimmers than our competitors.

2) Coaching - Our coaches have competed in 3 Summer Olympics, are National Champions from their respective countries, and one is a member of the FINA Coaches Commission. And most have worked or swam for the legendary Coach Bob Bowman.

3) Facility - we train at the Arizona State University Campus in the same pool that Michael Phelps did before the 2016 Rio Olympics, and in one of the top outdoor facilities in the Western United States.

We are an MP Michael Phelps swim team and our slogan is "Learn to Swim. Learn to Win."

Please contact us before you come to the pool.
