It is GCSTO's mission to offer one of the most safe, progressive and developmentally advanced swimming programs of its kind in this sport. Primarily we wish to focus on the athlete’s safety and well-being. From dryland and in-water training techniques to the actual environment we provide we strive to make GCSTO a place where an athlete feels safe and secure. Next, we wish to
to provide a continually evolving and state of the art program structure to the athlete who wishes to dedicate themselves to this sport and to that which is required to achieve excellence in this sport at a national level and international level. As a result of the strength and successes of the accomplishment of this primary goal, we can then fulfill our secondary mission which is to provide the opportunity for a developing athlete of any age to discover the benefits of an environment which promotes excellence at all levels... no matter what the goals of the individual may be when they enter into our program. Not every athlete will arrive to such a level of excellence that they become an Olympian but every athlete can learn what it takes to achieve such excellence. And by doing so, any swimmer can then take advantage of the opportunity to pursue the highest level of performance excellence possible for the level of dedication that they have chosen to commit to in this sport. It is our goal to provide our swimmers with an exciting, fun, educational and challenging environment in which they are able to strive to achieve their dreams in this sport. Through all of this, it is our mission to continue to elevate the quality of senior swimming in this area, the state of Ohio and, as such, in the USA.
