Mission Statement of the Swarthmore Swim Club

The purposes of the Swarthmore Swim Club are to provide a positive, safe, and clean summer aquatic, recreational and sports experience for its members of all ages and to be a responsible steward of the property for the community and future generations.  In meeting these purposes, we seek to fulfill the following values and goals: 

Enjoyment and Socialization 
The Club provides a fun, safe, clean, inviting and wholesome outdoor venue for all ages for swimming, socializing, relaxing and other forms of recreation as provided by the pool, playground, and picnic area. 

Promoting Health and Safety 
The Club promotes a healthy lifestyle and a safe environment by encouraging exercise through our swim and dive teams and lap-swimming program, by offering instruction to people of all ages on how to swim and develop exercise as part of their regimen, and by teaching and practicing the fundamentals of water safety. 

Supporting Our Entire Community 
The Club is an integral part of and plays a leading role in the Swarthmore Community. It was established to be inclusive and to promote neighbors getting to know and interact with one another and building new relationships.  The Board, the management, the staff and membership model and reinforce all aspects of civic virtue, mutual respect, a strong work ethic, openness, and tolerance.  In fulfilling this part of the mission, the Club works in cooperation with other community institutions. 

Mentoring Our Young People 
As a significant employer of young people in the community, the Club promotes their development, not only as a place of recreation but as a place of employment.  It seeks to provide our youth with positive employment opportunities, where they will develop and learn respect, responsibility, integrity, a good work ethic, their own strengths, and their future as good citizens. 

Stewardship and Sustainability 
The Club will practice and model stewardship and sustainability of its financial, human and natural resources, showing care and respect for the beauty of the Club’s facility and for the future of the natural environment.
