Philosophy

As a proud member of USA-Swimming (the national governing body of competitive swimming in America) the Academy Bullets Swim Club is committed to offering a program where beginners and nationally ranked swimmers can enjoy a great swimming experience.

Every Swimmer, Every Day.

Our coaches pride themselves on their ability to connect with their athletes on a daily basis. Swimmers can come to practice every day knowing that their coaches will give them positive, thoughtful feedback and will encourage them to push beyond the limitations they place on themselves on their way to reaching their full potential as both a swimmer and a person.

Nine Sites - One Team

Though we swim at nine distinct sites throughout Illinois, we are all Bullets! All Bullets coaches actively work to get to know swimmers from every site, and we encourage this same active participation in our swimmers. We pride ourselves on our ability to create a positive team culture with a collective vision, purpose, and goal. Our coaches across every site work together and share ideas. It's not uncommon for groups across our sites to be doing the same practice on the same day. Though our practices are held at nine separate sites, at meets we are one team with one giant presence - all exhibiting our Bullet Pride!

We're not just building better swimmers, we're building better kids.

At the Academy Bullets Swim Club, your child will learn the importance of being a good person. Every year you will see Bullets raising money for the Breast Cancer Research Fund, participating in gift drives within our communities, or spending a day with Feed My Starving Children. We do more than teach swimming here. We teach commitment and compassion. We teach the importance of community. We teach perseverance and passion.

Go Bullets!
