Team Mission:

The mission of the Baltimore JCC Swimming Team (JCC Swimming) is to promote lifetime physical fitness and wellness by teaching the skills and techniques of competitive swimming in a safe and affirming environment. We celebrate both individual and team achievements in an environment that respects and honors Jewish identity while striving to serve the needs of the diverse local community.

Team Vision Statement:

We Swim for Good Times!

The team’s vision statement can intentionally be read two ways:  First, the team is focused on individual achievement, as objectively measured by “the clock.”  Our team’s philosophy puts a greater value on an individual swimmer performing a best time than a swimmer who wins their race but does not swim to their best ability.

This first approach leads directly to the second interpretation of this statement:  With emphasis on team achievement and a focus that values individual improvement, the team seeks to provide a structure that encourages holistic growth and development and provides opportunities for leadership growth and development.
