Fall 2022 Swim Program 

Welcome to our Fall competitive swim team! 

Our mission is to provide the youth of our community the knowledge to succeed in and out of the water, and to promote the sport of swimming in our area. Athletes will be given the opportunity to pursue all their goals this fall and are capable of many achievements. We pride ourselves on the swim techniques taught in our program, which will translate into a more stroke efficient, faster swimmer. Beyond mastering skills and achieving physical fitness, our swimmers will gain confidence, sportsmanship, discipline, commitment, and an understanding that success results from hard work and goal setting. Swimmers will learn that you get what you work for, not what you wish for.
