The TBAY Brandon Creed was drafted by our swimmers in 2011 and subsequently adopted by the team.
TBAY BRANDON CREED
There are teams in the world of swimming that are good, and there are teams that are great. There are teams that push themselves beyond their limits in order to obtain success and are willing to make sacrifices in order to achieve excellence. TBAY Brandon is one of those teams!
As a TBAY Brandon swimmer, I will dedicate myself to the lifelong pursuit of success, through the daily expectance of greatness. I will strive to reach my goals. I will have a plan and know what it takes to get there, because a goal without a plan is just a wish.
There is no substitute for hard work. Every day, I will push teammates and myself harder and farther than I think possible. I will not complain when given a challenge, but instead destroy it mentally and physically. Negativity is not an option in the six-lane pool I go to battle in every day.
At TBAY Brandon, I will only speak positive and encouraging words, even on my toughest day. I will dedicate myself not only to becoming the best that I can be, but also to making the people around me better. I will give 110% every time I am given the opportunity. I will be relentless in my efforts, because I desire to be great.
I do not know what it means to give up. The word “can’t” is not in my vocabulary. I will NEVER quit!
When I stand upon the block, preparing to go to war, I will know no fear. I will be confident in my training. I will remember that it was this same burst of adrenaline pumping through my blood, right before my very first race that made me want to be someone great. I will race harder than my competitors and won’t stop until my hands hit the wall. I will NOT lose!
I will lead my teammates to the best of my ability, always setting an example of championship behavior. I will act like a champion in and out of the pool. I will represent myself, my family, and my team in such a way that will uphold their names.
Greatness is not something that can be switched on and off; it must become my way of life.
I will let nothing stand in the way of my greatness! I will NOT fail!
