Goals for our swimmers

  • Become better swimmers by improving strokes and endurance
  • Increase knowledge of swimming
  • Develop physical and mental discipline
  • Develop a sense of team-work among their peers
  • Build self-confidence by achieving personal goals and bettering individual times
  • Having fun and making new friends


Our staff concentrates on four things: (1) Building character and self-confidence; (2) Developing physical fitness through swimming;  (3)  Teaching swimming strokes, (4) Developing a sense of team.  We do not push winning as individuals or as a team.  We encourage our kids to beat their own times- swim faster than the last time.
