WHY SWIM?

 
Why Choose The Sport of Swimming?

Why Choose Valpo Swim Club?

 

 Valparaiso Swim Club uses an age group program designed to develop the child physically, mentally and emotionally in a organized, step-by step way. 

A well-defined, long-term approach of gradually increasing performance levels and technique is crucial for optimal performance during a swimmer’s physiological and psychological prime. 

The emphasis in the early stages of participation must be placed on developing technical skills and a love for the sport. 

We do not promote swimming miles and miles with bad strokes and awful technique. Efficient swimming comes first...Later, a more demanding physical and psychological challenge is introduced to the training program.  ‘Too much too soon’ is more often the cause of failure to achieve maximum potential in a senior swimmer and can cause "BURN-OUT"....    

VSC promotes Pride-Excellence-Commitment-and great Sportsmanship!

We take great pride in our team, our families, our community and are dedicated to building a strong character in and out of the water.
