Arden Hills Swimming program is designed to give young athletes a chance to achieve their true potential. We believe smaller groups will allow our team members to train and achieve at a higher level. This limited number of more dedicated young athletes will focus on reaching their highest potential possible.
USA teams across the country have gradually moved to a model that values numbers more than results. In the Arden Hills swimming program, each progressive step will focus on fewer and fewer athletes. Swimmers who enter in at the recreational level can, if they choose, graduate through a series of increasingly rewarding and intensifying programs (Otters → Fall → USA Swimming → Elite Swim Academy) gradually exchanging fun and comradery for dedication and results. Though this is diametrically opposite of what virtually all other teams in the nation are doing, Arden Hills has always been and will continue be the innovators that redefine what it means to BECOME a champion in the world of swimming.
