SCSC uses a Long-Term Development Swimming Program Model

Here’s the idea behind it: Ultimately, we want to recognize the needs of young athletes by ensuring that they stay active and healthy. Specifically, we want our swimmers to learn competitive swimming skills that will promote lifelong enjoyment and provide a pathway to excellence in the sport of swimming. Notice we are “promoting enjoyment” and “providing a pathway.” We want to help shape your young people into healthy, excellent young adults who are also excellent swimmers… maybe even some of the best swimmers one day.  Our structure strives to provide all of our athletes the opportunity to progress based on age and ability and to build upon what they learned in past groups as they progress.
