The Sailfish Swim Club (FISH) offers training and practice groups for swimmers of all ages and ability levels. It is the goal of Sailfish Swim Club (FISH) to offer specific training for all of our athletes geared towards challenging each individual and developing each individual to be the best swimmer.
