USA SWIMMING NATIONAL CLUB EXCELLENCE PROGRAM
Welcome to the Phoenix Aquatic Club. Established in 2013, we have among us Junior National, Senior National and Olympic Trial qualified swimmers. Many of our swimmers will go on to benefit from college scholarships and become successful leaders and professionals in their careers due to the discipline, responsibility, and sense of community gained through swimming and the Phoenix Aquatic Club.
Being part of the Phoenix Aquatic Club is about more than just swimming. It is also about camaraderie, teamwork, responsibility, volunteerism, respect, honesty, setting goals, academic and athletic excellence, a competitive spirit, and family. Our dedicated and professional coaching staff does an excellent job of developing our swimmers' body, mind, and spirit through training that is rigorous, yet age and ability appropriate, and fun.
Provide the best possible coaching in a positive, supportive and challenging atmosphere as to inspire swimmers to rise to their full potential.
Life is about the journey, not the outcome. Phoenix Aquatic Club encapsulates this belief and believes that our athletes and members are on a journey to the top. Phoenix promotes goal setting and perseverance, planning and implementation of successful programs, and the understanding that success is created because of a winning environment. This will lead each member of our Phoenix Aquatic Club family to overcome any obstacle, live with passion and purpose, and reach the PEAK of their potential.
Phoenix Aquatic Club offers several different training groups depending on the swimmer's age, maturity and swimming ability. The Phoenix coaches set the training groups and the criteria for entry into each training group. Listed training group goals provide guidelines for evaluation of each swimmer's abilities and a potential for progression to a higher training group. Progress from group to group is ultimately a coach's decision.
Age group training is the foundation of a developmental swimming program. Age group swimmers (including novice and age group levels) are encouraged to swim all four strokes and the individual medley. Age Group swimmers must develop the ability to stand up and race in competition. Competition is the result of training, and is a requirement, along with specific skill levels, for progression into more advanced training levels. The goal of the age group swimmer should be to develop the skills necessary to advance in training and to personally succeed.
