Texas Ford Aquatics Mission

Provide long term competitive swimming and personal development for athletes of all ages, abilities, and experience levels.

Texas Ford Aquatics Philosophy

We strive to inspire and enable our swimmers to achieve excellence in the sport of swimming and in life.

We are committed to sharing the values of our sport, promoting swimming as a lifelong sport, and engage young people in healthy activity.

We seek to continue our tradition of excellence so that each athlete can fulfill their dreams, whether that is learning to swim or an Olympic medal.

Coaches’ Statement

My mission as a coach is to develop your true potential in life. I promise to have an open door policy and be available to you to talk about your needs and dreams. My goal is to encourage athletic skills through individualized instruction, strengthen inner core values and principles, encourage abilities in leadership, fair play and team work, and provide a fun, rewarding and memorable experience.

After years of competitive swimming, I as a coach have integral knowledge about swimming and use a wide variety of technique. We employ extensive dry land and weight training workouts to not only promote strength and endurance but to prevent injury. But swimming is not just working out in the pool, on the deck or in the weight room.

We feel we must build not only a well-rounded swimmer but a well-rounded person. As a staff, we constantly work with swimmers to develop individual and team goals, exhibit sportsmanship, and create a positive environment which encourages growth in life skills.

Swimming is not just something you experience as a child. What we teach at Texas Ford Aquatics changes lives.

  1. Build each swimmer’s self-esteem and confidence, both in and out of the pool.

  2. Provide swimmers with skills to become community leaders.

  3. Promote regular physical activity, values and sportsmanship to create a well rounded individual.

  4. Teach children the importance that goals can only be achieved by hard work, dedication and persistence.
