Mission Statement

The Tornadoes Swim Team competes year-round while fostering the development of swimmer skills, abilities, confidence  and competitive drive. We encourage valuable life long skills by modeling and rewarding honesty, integrity, hard work, self-discipline, self-esteem, organizational skills, teamwork and excellent sportsmanship. The Tornadoes Swim Team is committed to providing a positive and safe environment in which swimmers of all levels may develop to their fullest potential. The Tornadoes Swim Team policies adhere to Safe Sport best practice guidelines to protect youth athletes.

TEAM PRACTICE: 

We are practicing again, but to keep swimmers, coaches, and families safe, we are limiting practices to reservations with one swimmer or two siblings per lane. We hope to gradually increase the amount of pool time and days that swimmers can attend as restrictions due to the coronavirus are lifted. If you are a current team member and interested in returning to practice, contact Coach Sophia.

TEAM TRYOUTS:

If you are interested in joining the Tornadoes Swim Team, we will be holding tryouts in August or September depending on the progression of COVID-19 in our area. Please send an email through the team website by clicking on the CONTACT US link below to get more information.

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE:

If you are in need of financial assistance for the 2021 long course season, please fill out the COVID Relief Scholarship application and submit it to the Tornadoes VP at [email protected] or drop off at practice to a board member.  All submission must be fully completed and submitted no later than March 31st.  Incomplete applications will not be reviewed until all documents are submitted.  Click here for the COVID Relief Scholarship Application.
