The ELMHURST SWIM TEAM is organized exclusively to teach youth to swim and develop skills for amateur competition on a local and national level; to teach and promote water safety; to teach youth to become swimming and water safety instructors; to educate youth regarding nutrition, physical fitness and development, and physical disabilities; to train youth in coping with and overcoming physical handicaps; to develop youth leadership skills; to teach youth and adults sportsmanship and ethics; to provide scholarships to youth in the community without regard to race, creed or color so they can participate in these and related educational programs; and to provide service to the community.

As part of its mission, EST operates through a Board of Directors and committee structure to provide coaches, swimmers, and volunteers the tools necessary to operate an open competitive swim program.
