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.



We are practicing again, but to keep swimmers, coaches, and families safe, we are limiting practices. 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.


If you are interested in joining the Tornadoes Swim Team, we hold tryouts in February/March for swimmers to start in April and July/August for swimmers to start in 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.
