My Students

6 years ago, a student-athlete and I decided our High School needed a swim team. Even though we didn't have a pool on campus, and we had to jump (dive?) through a ton of hoops, we are still going strong. We swim at our local rec pool and we average approx. 60 swimmers. To date, we are still gaining momentum. Last year, our boys, 3/4 of whom were beginning swimmers, got first place in our league. A very spirited group!

My Project

The motto for our swim team is Competition, Courage, Connection, and Commitment. Your contribution will help us continue to build our team as we enter a new, and more competitive league. We are hoping to add hand paddles, pull buoys, and stopwatches to our equipment.

These materials will help us continue to build our swim team.

Our team has always been spirited, committed, and full of seasoned and beginning swimmers. We get athletes who have never been on a team before to athletes who have been swimming their whole lives.

The coaching staff for the LHS swim team is committed to creating lifelong athletes, esp in the water.
