Our Philosophy and Objectives
It has long been recognized, that competitive swimming, and the countless hours of practice it ultimately requires, is one of the most healthiest activities for the human body. In addition, it has not been sufficiently heeded, those same hours of conditioning and dedication mold young minds and spirit into purposeful and determined adults, well equipped for the world they will enter.
The Campbell River Killer Whales Swim Club’s Philosophy is:
To nurture the whole child at every age and realizing that each one is different, allow each to develop as far as their dreams, talents and efforts will take them.
To provide a level of coaching that will lead the development of world-class swimmers, should they desire, while at the same time allowing beginning swimmers to develop character, self-confidence and a strong work ethic in an atmosphere of caring and consideration for the individual and the team.
To provide the swimmers the opportunity to learn sportsmanship while being part of a supportive team that fosters a positive environment.
To provide the community and the swimming world with individuals who are becoming the best they can be – as individuals, students, citizens and athletes.
Special Note: The Campbell River Swim Club will help swimmers that cannot swim due to financial difficulties as there are programs that can assist you in registering. All requests for assistance will be treated in absolute confidence.
