The New Paltz Seahawks swim team is a summer swim team whose purpose is to introduce and instill a love of swimming to children ages 5-18, and to build a team that shows commitment to developing competitive swimming skills, and building self-esteem and pride through both team and individual accomplishments.
Competitive swimming means demonstrating courage, hard work, determination, responsibility, sportsmanship and teamwork.
Recreational swimming means demonstrating the ability to have fun, to laugh, and to love the sport at every level.
Our goal is to find and keep a good balance between the two. Swimmers owe it to themselves and to the team to show support to their fellow swimmers during practice, during meets, and outside of the pool.
The New Paltz Seahawks is steeped in tradition, with fond memories held by swimmers young and old. We are fortunate that as the program continues to grow, we have longstanding community members who have come through the program, return to the program either in form of coach, volunteer, or parent of a new swimmer. It is our hope that you and your family will grow to love not only the sport, but all things Seahawks.
We are dedicated to making your swim experience the most fun it can be and look forward to having you become part of the tradition.
