Focus for Swim Team

We will spend much of the season talking about good nutrition and learning what our bodies need in order to become healthy adults and elite athletes. We strive for each child to be able to build a healthy foundation where they feel strong and confident.

We will also break down each stroke and work on proper technique and good form so that each swimmer can get the most efficiency from the strokes. This is the foundation of swimming. Our goal is not to be the FASTEST, but the MOST EFFICIENT in the water.

Swim team is a great way to enjoy competitive swimming in a recreational environment. All swim meets during the winter season will be on Saturdays starting in November and Summer dates are TBD.
