The Kansas City Blazers swim team was founded in 1975. We are a part of Johnson County Park and Recreation District and affiliated with USA Swimming. Our staff of five full-time coaches and numerous part-time coaches work to build both great athletes, and great individuals. Every year, many of our graduating seniors go on to swim in college, and every year one graduating athlete is awarded the Brian Howard Memorial Scholarship, a four-year scholarship for an athlete intending to swim in college. We are a USA Swimming Level IV and a Silver Medal club. Our athletes range in age from six years old through college, and even on into retirement when swimming with our Masters program (which set two world records in 2011). There have been five Blazers who have competed in the Olympic Games (Mark Dean- 1988, Janie Wagstaff- 1992, Catherine Fox- 1996, Scott Goldblatt- 2004, and Shannon Vreeland- 2012).
