An emphasis on team allows for PASA to reach its competitive potential, and for every individual to do his/her personal best.


Coaches Philosophy

The coaching staff are professionals who are passionate about swimming. The staff and team provide individuals and families with the resources needed to achieve their goals, and to reach the highest levels in competitive swimming.

The coaches at PASA believe that a technique and training program that is progressive in nature provides for the most appropriate development and allows for long-term success in swimming. The team offers an innovative program for swimmers of all ages and ability levels. Younger swimmers are offered comprehensive and unparalleled instruction. The emphasis at the early stages of development is on learning and mastering the necessary skills. As swimmers develop, training workload increases gradually. As swimmers progress into the Junior, Senior and National level programs, swimmer specific practices are designed and offered to maximize individual and team potential.

PASA provides the best possible environment for swimmers to achieve success at every level.
