About the Creatures

The Newburgh Sea Creatures (NSC) are a competitive age-group swim club that provides swimming opportunities to children of all ages. The team operates under the rules and regulations of USA Swimming, Indiana Swimming, and the Southern Indiana Swim Conference.

Practices and home meets are held at Castle High School’s new, state-of-the art, 50 meter by 25 yard  indoor pool. This new facility allows for up to 19 practice lanes and 14 competition lanes during the short course season and 9 practice lanes and 8 competition lanes when configured for long course meters.

NSC typically hosts eight meets a year, five during the short-course and three during the long-course season.

Being a member of the NSC swim club helps the swimmers develop physically, socially, and emotionally. We strive to improve them as individuals and as team members through a positive swimming experience. The sport of swimming has many benefits, including the people involved with the sport. The camaraderie among swimmers is unique; many swimmers become lifelong friends. In addition to being around fine people, swimming provides one of the most beneficial forms of exercise for cardiovascular and overall fitness. This exercise can be enjoyed throughout one’s entire life.

NSC is a family-oriented club and thrives through the participation of our coaches, swimmers, and parents. The team is a not-for-profit organization that has been in existence for over 30 years. It is designed to encourage maximum participation, provide an educational experience, enhance physical and mental condition, and develop a rich base of swimming talent.

The team functions with the support of volunteer swim parents and the efforts of the coaching staff that is employed by the team. The major financial support for the club comes from dues, sponsorships, and from hosting swim meets.

The team operates on essentially two seasons per year. The winter season runs from September to the middle of March. The summer season runs from the beginning of April to the beginning of August The structure of the team itself is broken into groups based on swimming ability.
