A HISTORY OF BUILDING CHAMPIONS IN AND OUT OF THE WATER

Bend Swim Club, Inc., an Oregon non-profit corporation, first incorporated with the State of Oregon in 1963.  Bend Swim Club’s purpose is to promote and provide a competitive swimming experience for all age groups and levels and to provide an opportunity to engage in a lifesaving, lifetime sport. 

VISION
Bend Swim Club membership is comprised of swimmers from the age group level to the Olympic Trials,
as well as coaches and volunteers. Bend Swim Club strives to serve the sport through its core objectives:
Build the base, Promote the sport, Achieve competitive success.

MISSION
The Bend Swim Club builds champions in and out of the water. We are an organization that guides swimmers, their families, and alumni to demonstrate excellence in their lives by actively participating in their community and team. We accomplish this by instilling self-confidence, discipline, accountability, and respect.

CORE OBJECTIVES
Bend Swim Club has adopted USA Swimming’s three core objectives. These core objectives establish the
foundation of the strategic business plan for our sport. USA Swimming and the Bend Swim Club
encourage all members to participate in the local, regional and national efforts to ensure that these
objectives are accomplished.

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.

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.

ACHIEVE SUSTAINED COMPETITIVE SUCCESS
The Bend Swim Club has been ranked in the top 5 Pacific Northwest swim clubs and USA Swimming has
been ranked as the number one swimming nation in the world for more than 40 years. We seek to
continue this tradition of competitive excellence. When our elite athletes are successful in fulfilling their
dreams our society benefits from the inspiration these athletes give us.
