Race Swami’s purpose is to introduce competitive swimming to underrepresented youth from Salt Lake County. We seek to provide a healthy and stimulating environment in which these young athletes can grow and compete. Race Swami emphasizes excellence in academics as well as athletics and supports swimmers and parents in the achievement of high academic standards.
Race Swami is a member club of USA Swimming and competes in meets held under the sanctions of Utah Swimming, the local affiliate. The team is divided into six training groups: Rising Swami I (Green, Gold), Rising Swami II, Rising Swami III, Junior Swami, and Kamiwaza. A entry-level group -- Neighborhood House -- encompasses an after-school partnership program with the Neighborhood House daycare center located in Glendale. It's a learn-to-swim program geared towards youngsters who wish to learn basic water safety skills and provide them the chance to join a swim team if that's their passion.
Race Swami is a year-round program and welcomes all prospective new athletes to the program any time of year. For more information on how to join, please call Minerva at (801) 618-9807.
