“Developing STARS in life through strength, character, and dedication in the sport of competitive swimming.” 

Welcome to the great sport of competitive swimming and the SouthWest STARS Swim Team. We believe that our swim team will be both a positive and rewarding challenge to all of our members.                    

The  SouthWest STARS are a year-round competitive swim team. We participate in USA Swimming and novice competitions, thus offering exposure to local, state, regional, and national amateur athletics. Swimmers participate in groups based on age and ability. Many positive qualities are developed and fostered by competitive swimming such as physical conditioning, self-discipline, and personal achievement. Each swimmer’s development is recognized on an individual basis through challenging practice sessions, stroke perfection, and competitive swim meets.

The SouthWest STARS are committed to providing a fun and exciting environment so that participants can reach their highest potential as athletes and swimmers.  In the process our members learn the value of hard work and dedication, and they develop the moral and ethical qualities necessary to become productive members of our community.  By teaching self-discipline, respect and goal-setting skills, we are instilling a sense of pride in our members that is carried with them into the community.  Although the STARS train to produce the highest level athletes including Nationally ranked swims, U.S. Olympic Trial Qualifiers, Junior Olympic Champions, Florida All-Stars, High School State Champions, All-Americans, and Academic All-Americans, we are just as proud of the swimmers who reached less prestigious goals.  Obtaining a first “B” cut, making a relay team, or simply making it to the end of the pool without stopping are recognized as significant achievements by our coaching staff. 

In the event that you decide to join the STARS we know you and your swimmer will have many successful experiences and that competitive swimming will become a source of fond memories for your family.  For more information call (407) 905-0999.
