Core Objectives 

Tsunami Swim Team has adopted three core objectives. These core objectives establish the foundation of the strategic business plan for our sport. Tsunami Swim Team encourages all members to participate in the local, regional and national efforts to ensure that these objectives are accomplished.

  1. Build the Base
    We seek to expand our membership in order to share our sport with as many other people as possible. We are especially committed to sharing the values of our sport with young people who may discover that swimming is an activity they can enjoy for their entire life.
  2. Promote the Sport
    We want swimming to receive as much publicity as possible because we believe that the more people learn about our sport the more inclined they will be to join the ranks of our membership. We are proud of our sport and we seek to celebrate it whenever possible.
  3. Achieve Competitive Success
    Tsunami Swim Team has been ranked as a top 100 swimming club in the  USA. We seek to continue this tradition of competitive excellence. When our elite athletes are successful in fulfilling their dreams our society and organization benefits from the inspiration these athletes give us.



The purpose of the Tsunami Swim Team of Kansas City is to provide the nurturing team environment and leadership to guide athletes toward the maximum development of their human and swimming ability. The program is centered on promoting high self-esteem and goal achievement through the pursuit of personal excellence and educationally sound values as it relates to their success in training, competition, and life in general. We encourage kids to become well rounded and courageous in the face of a challenge, in the hopes they become the leaders of tomorrow. It is our belief that the process of achieving is as significant as realizing the achievement itself. 

We train, or coach, our swimmers to seek development in all competitive strokes and events offered by USA Swimming and view development of world class swimmers as a long-term operation, that is, small changes add up to major principles. At each level of the Tsunami Program, swimmers are instructed to strive for excellence. Excellence in this sense represents the achievement of that level at which you know that you have done your utmost to become the best you are capable of becoming. This philosophy is consistent throughout the program, and every Tsunami swimmer is encouraged to:
