Head Coach: Kristina West – USA Swimming certified coach
Assistant Coach: Tom Farrell
Session 1: August – December
Session 2: January – May
Our year-round swim team has 3 ability levels including Bronze, Silver, and Gold, for swimmers in grades K-12. Swimmers are assessed by our coaches based on their ability and endurance and placed in the correct practice groups. We hold in-house swim meets quarterly to encourage, motivate, and push each swimmer to grow in the sport of swimming. The year-round swim team is not a group swim lesson. Each swimmer must be able to continuously swim (without touching the ground or side) a legal stroke including freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, or butterfly, one full length of the 25 yard pool to qualify for the team. We strive to promote a positive and encouraging environment for our swimmers while teaching them that hard work, consistency, and determination equals growth.
