Swim Team Philosophy:
It is our philosophy that any swimmer who practices regularly, works hard, and tries to improve deserves as many opportunities as possible to swim at meets (some swimmers may swim more than others). The positive support of coaches, parents and teammates will help all of our swimmers to reach their goals of individual and team improvement. We must not measure success by how someone performs against teammates and opponents, but by how the swimmer performs against the clock and his or her own improvement. We encourage every swimmer to cheer for fellow teammates at meets and at practice.
The majority of our communication will be through our weekly newsletter, which will be distributed via email. Please make sure your email address is up-to-date in our database.
