Why SWIFT Aquatics?

SWIFT Aquatics (SWAQ) began its inaugural season in the spring of 2011.  SWIFT Aquatics is a USA Swimming chartered, year-round competitive swim program - providing a comprehensive approach to competitive swimming instruction through a concentrated focus on appropriate mechanics and training progressions.

At SWIFT Aquatics, we strive to be an all encompassing program - allowing the beginner to enjoy and elite to excel.  Outside of in-house Mini Swim Meets that we run for our athletes looking to gain more meet experience, we are well represented at Illinois Championship Meets (Regionals, Age Group Championships, and Senior Championships) and continue to qualify swimmers for Zone Championship Meets (Central Zone Championships and Speedo Sectional Championships) and National Championship Meets (USA Junior National Championships). 

Our older athletes represent their local high schools at the Conference, Sectional, and State level.  Many have chosen to continue their swimming careers at the collegiate level.  These athletes serve as great role models for our younger, developing swimmers and the future of our program - as they aspire to emulate their accomplishments and accolades both in and out of the water.

Our Coaching Staff sees each workout and each meet as an opportunity to make a difference in each child's life by creating an environment conducive to reaching their fullest potential as an athlete and as an individual.  This makes everyday a teachable moment and our team camaraderie contagious.

SWIFT Aquatics Values:

 Athlete Focused
 Character Development
 Positive attitudes lead to positive impact athletes
 Maintain connections to the community and each family to foster teamwork and a sense of common goals.
 Everyone should have fun learning and excelling, regardless of experience.

SWIFT Aquatics operates out of Niles Township District 219 facilities. A Parent Advisory Subcommittee assists in overseeing the operation, direction of the program, and providing athlete incentives and support to create a great experience within our program. 

Thank you for your interest in our program. We are looking forward to sharing our enthusiasm about the future of our team with you. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact any member of our Coaching Staff.
