Tiger Champion Award

"To create Life Champions through Excellence in Swimming."  That is our Club Mission.  As an organization, we are committed to striving for Excellence and want to steadily grow youth so they become Champions in Life! 

This Week's Tiger Champion!

This week's Tiger Champion is AJ Adams. Swimming with the Tiger Pride for the last couple of years, AJ has earned his stripes as a valued member of the team while leading by example.  In particular, his improvements in attendance over the last couple of years along with his investment into personal effort and grit offer a glimpse of why he is respected amongst his teammates and coaches and is one of the main reasons for his outstanding performances this season.  According to Coach Chas, "AJ has become a high-level worker and through setback and struggle has become stronger and more committed.  His perseverance is one of his greatest qualities and will continue to drive his success.”  No doubt, AJ will continue being a leader in this way within the Tiger Pride training group and will certainly be an inspiration to a younger generation of future Tigers.

AJ is a 7th grader at Fishers Junior High and cites Science and Social Studies as his favorite subjects.  AJ’s leadership qualities and efforts are respected outside the pool and within school as well as evident by being a selected member of the National Junior Honor Society.  When asked which Tiger Value resonates the most with him, he references Sportsmanship because “by being demonstrated then it improves the TEAM.”  Well said AJ.  It should also come as no surprise that AJ feels the Mile is his favorite and best event/stroke.  His advice to the younger athletes is “work hard and be respectful”.  No doubt, the Mile will demand it from even the best of swimmers! 

Congratulations AJ upon being a Tiger Champion!

The Tiger Champion Award Background
A major component of that process is the development of personal skills, qualities, and characteristics.  It is important that our athletes recognize, understand, and exhibit character that reflects growth.  Likewise, it is equally important that great character be demonstrated by those that are a part of the process.  Each one of us has a responsibility in this process to insure a successful outcome. 

Our "Tiger Champion" Award goes to our 14 and under athletes who best exemplifies the following attributes:

  • Performance: The athlete meets and exceeds the number of training sessions recommended.  The athlete is punctual in arriving to training.  The athlete actively participates in training sessions by exhibiting exceptional effort.  The athlete is responsible for their actions.
  • Attitude: The athlete is enthusiastic, positive, optimistic and coachable.
  • Integrity: The athlete abides by TEAM policies.  The athlete is honest and respectful towards teammates, parents, coaches, officials, and volunteers.
  • TEAM Spirit: The athlete is supportive, loyal and exhibits PRIDE in being a Tiger.

Congratulations to our Tiger Champions! We are proud of your efforts towards attaining Excellence and becoming Champions, in and out of the pool!
