WHY EDGE?

When an individual joins the EDGE swim club, they are treated as a highly valuable and important individual. But more importantly, they are welcomed to a family and community that values all with equal weight regardless of their accolades. At the EDGE Swim Club, we believe in the success of every athlete both in and out of the pool, regardless of their age, gender, background, or whether they are new to the sport or qualifying for national-level meets. Every coach is invested in helping swimmers realize their potential and facilitating the growth of our athletes.

We are a team that focuses on process over result. By honoring themselves and their teammates with their effort, we know our athletes can achieve greatness. While best times, medals and ribbons are excellent signifiers of success, we teach our swimmers that they can feel just as good if they nail their race strategy, celebrate their teammates' success, make a new friend, and remain focused on the present. Placing the process over the result also means treating teammates like family and displaying the best sportsmanship in the pool. At almost every meet we attend, we get compliments from other teams about how well our team gets along and how much we resemble one big family. We take tremendous pride in that and put on multiple team events throughout the season to strengthen that bond we have as a swim family.

Administratively, our coaches work hard behind the scenes to make sure communications and operations are smooth and transparent for our families. The EDGE Swim Club utilizes a seamless and easy-to-use registration system that takes the headache out of joining a sports team. Simply register online and you will have your USA Swimming registration, medical release forms, and payment completed within 10 minutes!

Our athletes have access to tremendous facilities and services on site that our competitors simply can't offer. The EDGE has physical therapy, registered dieticians, personal trainers, the Parisi Speed School, a state-of-the-art astroturf, as well as multiple locations throughout Chittenden County for when swimmers need to take that extra step outside of their practice time in Williston. Our partners in each department of the EDGE are dedicated to the success of our athletes, and we can't wait to work with you!

SHORT COURSE PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Our USA Swimming short course program takes place from September until mid-March. It is a more rigorous and structured program compared to recreational teams like that of our Summer Team. Similar to other club sports like soccer and hockey, swimmers train with their practice group and compete in meets throughout the season, ultimately finishing with the championship meet(s) they have qualified for. With many of the meets the EDGE competes in being within Vermont, there are plenty of opportunities for swimmers to gain confidence and perfect their race strategies for when championship meets come around. There are also a handful of out-of-state meets that provide excellent competition for our swimmers to push themselves against.

Through practices, team events, swim meets and community service efforts, our athletes learn so much more than just technique, endurance, and race strategy. They earn to become stronger individuals. They learn to give their best effort to contribute to the efforts of the whole team. They learn that part of becoming a great swimmer is giving back to the sport that teaches so much about dedication, camaraderie, focus, and how what you get out is only as much as you put in.

During the season, one of our biggest goals is to turn our swim team into a swim family, and we hope you will join our excellent coaching staff and wonderful swimmers as we practice together, compete together, donate time to the community together, and have numerous team events together as we make that happen! We offer a two week trial period so families can see what all the fun is about! Learn more about it in the enrollment section of this page.

SHORT COURSE COMMUNICATION

Our coaching staff works hard to make sure our swim family stays well informed throughout the whole season. There are monthly bulletins that families can refer to for important information, communications before and after meets so everyone knows what to expect, as well as other supplemental information.

We ask that families check their email regularly as that is our primary method of communication. We also strongly utilize our social media channels and the News section of the website to keep everybody informed.
