Competitive swimming can be a positive influence on youth development. Swimming is one of the most challenging, yet safest of physical activities. Children can become stronger and faster in a carefully monitored training program encouraging them to develop a lifelong commitment to fitness.
In addition, competitive swimming helps teach self-discipline. Because we expect our swimmers to work hard at school maintaining good grades along with a dedication to the time they spend swimming, they learn to budget their time and energy. We aspire to teach our youngest swimmers the balance of fun and hard work in the pool. Our older swimmers are encouraged to develop a strong work ethic both in and out of the pool while making a commitment to attend practice as often as possible.
Our swimmers experience the increased self-esteem which accompanies improved physical fitness, the camaraderie of being on a team and the challenges of swimming competitively. These skills and experiences prepare many of our swimmers to swim successfully in college and develop skills they will use the rest of their lives – commitment, perseverance, and teamwork.
