Coaching Philosophy

Coaches

The primary goal of the Flying Fish Swim Team is to develop proficient swimmers while encouraging a love of the sport.

In our Swim Team program, we emphasize proper stroke technique through group instruction, hands-on stroke clinics, and coach-to-swimmer feedback.

Our Lesson program has an emphasis on the skills required to become proficient in the water in order to participate in a swim team.

With both programs, we incorporate games and fun activities throughout the summer in order to build camaraderie and good sportsmanship.
