"A man is not learned until he learns how to read, write, and SWIM."
Through active participation in aquatics, we strive to build good sportsmanship, self-confidence, and strong character among youth and the community in which we serve.
- Our object is not to produce a champion, but to provide an atmosphere where champions are inevitable. However, swimming is a means to an end... To build self-confidence, self-discipline, integrity, and courage for life...
- Watch your thoughts, for they become words. Choose your words. For they become actions. Understand your actions, for they become habits. Study your habits, for they will become your character. Develop your character, for it becomes your destiny.
- Impossible is an option
- Simple phrase, Swim hard, swim smart, swim together. I think it says a lot in those six words. Failure is not a destination. I like that. But it is how we test ourselves.
- For Swim Team, see above.
- For swimming lessons is ongoing. For more information, go to Swim Lessons.
