Swim Team

This is a developmental swim program that offers all levels of training in various pools across Tacoma. Get inspired to expand your goals and reach beyond your potential!

Swim teams include:

  • Neighborhood Swim Team (summer only) welcomes youth 7-17 years old with no or little swimming experience. Athletes must be comfortable moving around in water where they can stand and touch the bottom.
  • Explorers Group (monthly, up to 4 times a week) primarily focuses on increasing swimmer efficiency. Swimming fast is de-emphasized while body position and efficiency are developed. Coach’s permission to register is required.
  • Challengers Group (monthly, up to 5 times a week) is a step further into competitive swimming, where technique is emphasized while training and racing really start to take off. Coach’s permission to register is required.
  • Achievers Group (monthly, up to 6 times a week) takes proper swimming technique and dynamics into higher level in preparation for competitive success. Coach’s permission to register is required.
  • Sectional Group (monthly, up to 8 times a week) consists mostly of 15 and older youths. It promotes swimming to reach the athlete’s highest potential. Competitions attendance is encouraged. All high school and college swimmers are welcome.
