Our Philosophy

Developing champions in the pool and life begins with a healthy winning attitude. Champions strive for excellence 100% of the time, knowing they practice the utmost to be the best they can be.

We guide and direct individuals towards maximum development of their talents and abilities. Talent is not a substitute for hard work. We help our athletes see their dreams become reality through persistent efforts. The path to realizing dreams is filled with many rewards, lessons and a lot of fun.

All Star Aquatics believes in the passionate pursuit of excellence. ASA's pursuit of exceptional performance in training and competition teaches the values of high self-esteem, personal accountability, self-discipline, leadership, and goal setting and goal achievement.

Our team's success shall be determined from selfless enthusiastic participation of athletes, coaches, parents, and volunteers.

We at All Star Aquatics know swimming is not always the easy choice. We have all wanted to quit, but finished the set. We wanted to sleep, but pulled ourselves to practice. We didn't think we could finish, but went faster. No one promised a trophy, but our rewards are greater than ever imagined. We are All Star Aquatics and we are all champions. Consider joining our team.

We follow USA Swimming's Safe Sport Guidelines.

Our Story                                                       

Coach Bob Walker and a group of enthusiastic parents started All Star Aquatics based on one simple idea - Swimming is Fun! It's fun because we love to swim, coach swimming and participate in the best sport on earth. We have fun when we work hard and swim fast - which transcends age, ability, gender, talent, and experience.

What happens when you learn to swim with All Star Aquatics? When you swim regularly and learn how to improve techniques? And practice and become more competent? What happens when you join our team?  Good things happen! Things like learning about dedication, positive attitudes, friendship, community, healthy values and strong self-esteem. We know it is the journey fueled by a passion for swimming that teaches these lessons, one stroke at a time, for use over a lifetime. We believe swimming is a microcosm of life and we endeavor to pursue it to each individual's fullest capability. Our success comes in small increments of a hundredth of a second, a first length, an improved stroke, and in large amounts of satisfaction, enthusiasm and a ton of smiles. Everybody is welcome.

All Star Aquatics is a member of Potomac Valley Swimming (PVS), the governing body for competitive swimming in the national capital area.
