Welcome to Michigan's newest competitive swim team!
You are the very first Water Bears!
Do you know what a Water Bear is? The animal's true scientific name is the Tardigrade. This tiny organism is one of the strongest creatures on Earth due to its ability to thrive in any environment. The Water Bear can withstand extreme cold and heat, a pressure range from the depths of the ocean's trenches to the vacuum of outer space, radiation, and even chemical toxins. This represents our team and each of you. No matter how big or small, we can all strive to be as strong and resilient as our mascot. Your ability to adapt to your new team, as a swimmer, and in life is a display of your might.
