Champions in the Pool.

Champions in Life

Our Vision

Champions in the pool. Champions in life.

Our Mission

For over 30 years, Southeastern Swim Club has had the same mission:

Empower swimmers to develop character and realize their potential in a positive, fun, and safe environment!

Our Values

The foundation of the triangle is the 3 basic psychological needs, as defined by the Self-Determination Theory.

Competence is defined as an individual's perception of his or her ability to do a task successfully.  SSC's action statement for this value is "Embrace Challenge."

Autonomy is defined as an individual's perception of his or her control over life.  SSC's action statement for this value is "Take Ownership."

Connection is defined as an individual's perception of their support and relation to teammates, coaches, and family.  At SSC, "Team = Family."

The next tier on the triangle represents the "controllables" in life.  Everyone has control over their mindset and effort.

Mindset is the attitude that an individual has.  SSC embraces a "Total Optimistic Attitude."

Effort is the energy and focus that an individual puts forth.  SSC embraces "100% Effort."

The apex of this triangle is Competitive Excellence.  Contrary to common belief, compete means "to strive with," meaning that true competition is not about beating someone, but about pushing each other towards excellence.

This value system and model are effective both in realizing athletic potential and in developing character.

Our History

Southeastern Swim Club was founded in 1989, based on the belief that competitive swimming offers an exciting and worthwhile experience in a young person’s life. 

Today, our Club has over 300 members, but don’t let our team's large size fool you: every swimmer has close access to SSC's professional coaches. SSC focuses on skill development, building great stroke techniques, and creating a positive culture for all.

SSC has won state championships, developed Olympic Trials and National Meet qualifiers, and achieved the highest levels of team success. But most importantly, for the past 30 years, our Club has played an invaluable role in building character and in teaching life skills.

Athletes of all ages and experience levels are welcome. You can learn more about how to join the team here. For those unready to join the competitive team, we offer a lessons (learn to swim) program, and also offer a Masters swim team for adults of all experience levels.
