Philosophy

Overview

Homewood Flossmoor Swim Club is a not-for-profit organization administered by a parent Board of Directors. Founded in 1981 by a small group of families, the team has grown to over 120 members. 

 

Being on a swim team is an opportunity to reach fulfilment and growth at many levels:  mentally, physically, and spiritually.  HFSC was formed and has been dedicated to providing swimmers of varying abilities and levels this opportunity.  Because most young people have varying levels of commitment to the sport, our team encourages any swimmer who enjoys the sport to participate in our program.

 

HFSC has a place for all swimmers, beginners to National Champions!  We want your swimmer to find their place with us.

 

Philosophy

Competitive swimming teaches many things:

·    a level of responsibility, self-discipline, persistence and perseverance.  

·    personal maturity

·    good sportsmanship, personal pride along with team spirit

 

Our club helps each swimmer find and refine these characteristics for themselves.

  

Support

Parental involvement and support are essential ingredients in the HFSC program. The program is run entirely by volunteers, and the participation of willing and engaged parents within the HFSC family is a critical factor in the operation of the team. The young people in the pool are the reason we're here, but the volunteer activities of our parents make things work.  Without their continuing time and energy, the club would not be what it is.

Parents, like your swimmers, we want you to find your place with us. We welcome your participation.
