Johnston Blaze strives to be the finest competitive aquatics program in central Iowa. Our commitment to excellence begins with a professional coaching staff fully supported by an active parent organization. Our swimmers set an example of integrity and leadership while representing the community in highest form.



Johnston Blaze seeks to actualize its vision by maintaining a structured, multi-level program that fosters participation at all ages and ability levels.  The coaching staff is provided opportunities and experiences that further each coach’s professional development in the areas of technical knowledge, leadership, athlete protection training, and administration. Parent involvement opportunities are broad ranging. An active parent organization supports both the developmental growth and fiscal responsibilities of the program.

Blaze promotes physical and mental fitness in a safe and fun environment. Our swimmers develop a positive self-image through discipline, commitment and perseverance. The professional coaching staff teaches technical swimming proficiency, proper body conditioning, goal setting, motivation and sportsmanship. The athletes’ active participation in competitive events instills the ability to deal with success and failure, self discipline and the adherence to rules, respect for others, team spirit, and other invaluable life lessons. This is all accomplished in a family oriented setting that creates an atmosphere of fun, social interaction and fellowship.
