Board of Directors


SWAT is a non-profit, full-service swim club that meets the needs of every level of swimmer, from lessons to Masters.

As a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, we are governed by a parent-led board of directors. There are 9 voting directors, each of whom serves a 3-year term. There are also 4 non-voting members.

Here is a copy of the Team By-Laws.
