Elite Swim Team, view swimming as an important part of the overall development of a swimmer. Besides the most obvious benefit of physical conditioning, swimming fosters the personal discipline required to persevere, the confidence building of progress in the competition, the social growth from travel, learning to accept winning and losing with equal grace, and the sense of values gained from competing as both an individual and a team member.

The ELITE program strives to instill in young swimmers an understanding of, and appreciation for such concepts as high self-esteem, personal accountability, constructive self-motivation, goal-setting, and goal achievement as their ideas relate to their success in training and in competition. It is our belief that the process of achieving is as significant as realizing the achievement itself.

At each level of the ELITE program, swimmers are instructed to strive for excellence. Excellence in this sense represents the achievement of that level at which each swimmer knows that they have done their utmost to become the best they are capable of becoming. This philosophy is consistent throughout the program in every swimmer, novice through Olympian. We want every swimmer to swim to the best of their own ability and seek the opportunity to attain the level of excellence to which their desire and ability will move them. We believe swimmers and their parents alike should enjoy swimming and remember it is a positive experience. See less
