About our Team 

 

Mission Statement

Through sports and competition, Wolverine Aquatics Club's mission is to create a healthy and safe learning environment that inspires confidence and promotes growth of all athletes, coaches, and parents.

 

Emphasis

The emphasis is on stroke development, technique, conditioning, goal-setting, physical fitness and race strategies. Our professional coaches motivate all athletes to improve in a fun and positive learning environment. We are a United States Swimming (USAS) team and all members must become USAS upon joining. There are several USAS sanctioned meets per year that the team will train for and encouraged to attend.

Swim Meets
