Welcome Letter

 Welcome to the Duneland Swim Club

We are a not-for-profit organization.

The club's directors are: Head Coach Jim Voss and CHS Coach/Senior Mat Pavlovich. The staff includes Assistant Coach Hanna Johnson, Assistant Coach Justin Reeder, and Assistant Coach Carrie McKiddy.

The goals for the Club are to teach swimming in a competitive environment and to teach teamwork. The day you start the swim program is the beginning of a long road to some very high goals and expectations. When a swimmer joins the team they are thought of as a member of our family and as a long-range swimmer.

Fast swimming is a long process with a lot of peaks and valleys. All Duneland Swim Club members will be taught the methods developed by proven mechanics and many years of quality experience. Our teaching starts out with basic concepts and then gradually increases with strength and more yardage as a swimmer progresses through our program.

Our goal in the long run is to have a happy, successful high school senior who can look back on this program and be proud of their accomplishments and of what they have given back to the swim club. Results will vary with different levels of raw talent, coordination, strength, and the desire to excel. However, as with all competitive sports, you will get back what you put into the sport.

We are looking forward to a great season this year and for the many seasons ahead! 

About Our Club

Duneland Swim Club offers Age Group competitive swimming for all abilities ranging from very young beginners through nationally ranked youth. Our most current 2022 season boasted a 5th place finish at the Indiana Age Group SCY State meet and included 3 state champions and top 3 high point honor awarded to our 10u boys. Our club also sent 8 swimmers to the Speedo Sectional Championships held in Indianapolis in April 2022.

Most practices are held at Chesterton Middle School, a sanctioned 25 yard, 6 lane competitive pool or at Chesterton High School. All home meets are held at Chesterton High School.

Coach Jim Voss will be able to answer all questions about practice, meets, discipline, fund-raising, and all other concerns that will arise during the season. PLEASE contact Coach Jim so a question will be answered with a consistent reply.
