The mission of Swim Wallingford Aquatics Team (SWAT) is to provide the youth of our community with a USA Swimming* club and to promote the sport of swimming in our area. Team members are given the opportunity to pursue their goals in the sport of swimming to whatever level they aspire, and are capable of achieving. Swimmers are supported and valued whatever their level from novice to national.
* USA Swimming is the National Governing Body for competitive swimming in the United States. As the National Governing Body for the sport, USA Swimming is responsible for the conduct and administration of swimming in the United States. In this capacity, USA Swimming formulates the rules, implements policies and procedures, conducts the national championships, disseminates safety and sports medicine information and selects the athletes to represent the United States in international competition.
Beyond mastering skills and achieving physical fitness, our swimmers will gain confidence, sportsmanship, discipline, commitment and an understanding that success results from hard work and goal setting. They will learn the value of being part of a team. Our aim is to make swimming an important and enjoyable part of our members' lives. Parents are encouraged to be actively involved in many aspects of the team.
