We have professionally trained coaches to lead our swim team. They conduct the weekly practices and lead the team during Saturday meets. Coaches and assistants have competitive swimming backgrounds and many also participate in the meets themselves or have been part of our swim team in the past. These coaches foster a healthy and safe environment where children of all ages and abilities build self-esteem and a winning attitude that will carry on throughout their life.
