Competitive swimming is one of the most unique and challenging sports in the world. In addition to being one of the most complete forms of exercise, it is also a great deal of fun. It contributes greatly in the development of a well-rounded young adult by teaching many important attributes such as sportsmanship, cooperation, dedication, goal orientation, discipline, team spirit, pride, humility and many more. Swimming is one of the very few sports that allow an individual to compete for himself and his team. It is a highly technical, difficult to master sport involving complex strategies yet can be both enjoyable and relaxing as well.
Swimming is a FAMILY sport. It REQUIRES sacrifices of time and effort of EVERYONE in the family. Parents must be willing to VOLUNTEER their time to help with team activities, make arrangements for your swimmers to get to and from practices and meets, pay the various expenses and SUPPORT and ENCOURAGE your swimmer's efforts. Swimmers must be willing to SACRIFICE their time for practices and meets, work hard in practice to develop their skills and improve their conditioning and cooperate with your teammates to achieve both your own and the team's goals.
