Indiana Swim Club (ISC) was originally founded in 1955 as Bloomington Swim Club by the legendary Dr. James E. “Doc” Counsilman as a competitive swimming program for children ages 5-21. At the time the Club was sponsored by Bloomington Parks and Recreation, and in 1967 the club became a not-for-profit organization, run by a Board of Directors consisting of parents and other interested members of the community. In 2018, Bloomington Swim Club joined together with the Counsilman Center Indiana Swim Club to form the Indiana Swim Club (ISC). Indiana Swim Club is a member of USA Swimming, the national governing body for the sport of swimming, and Indiana Swimming, Inc. (ISI), the governing body for swimming in the state of Indiana.


ISC is proud to call both Bloomington and Martinsville home. 

ISC has swum out of the following Bloomington pools:

Indiana Swim Club's mission is to encourage youth in the Bloomington and Martinsville areas to experience the sport of swimming at a variety of levels, from the beginning swimmer to the national caliber swimmer, in a safe and supportive environment that fosters discipline, sportsmanship, and self-esteem.

Young swimmers who want to compete and achieve excellence will find the coaching, training, and facilities they need.  Our coaches understand the techniques and attention needed for swimmers to develop their potential. ISC participates in a full cycle of club meets, so swimmers can measure their progress and gain competition experience.

Competing in meets and attending every practice is not mandatory, however; swimmers can choose their level of involvement. Some swim for health and fitness and do not compete.  Others belong to ISC for the camaraderie and friendships that develop among families. From the benefits of a healthy lifestyle to the excitement of cutting-edge competitive sports, ISC offers a wide range of participation. Through all of this, we ultimately want to provide our membership with a safe, healthy, protected and positive environment, while helping our athletes to be the best in the pool, classroom and life.
