Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Build a Foundation of Opportunity
Our team strives to offer opportunities for all athletes, and provides an environment that promotes safety, fun and competitiveness for all levels and abilities.

Achieve Competitive Success
Our team strives to teach success is defined by character, strong work ethic, determination, & effort of the individuals.

Sustain an Olympic Tradition
Our team strives to carry an Olympic tradition of performance for highly competitive athletes, and the values of this tradition can carry into Age Group, Junior Olympic and Senior level swimming.

Develop Life Long Skills
Our team strives to develop values of high character like discipline and resiliency to help with the understanding that there is more to life after swimming, and everyone has the opportunity to make a difference in the community.

Create a Partnership with the Community
Our team strives to help, support and collaborate with the community of the Santa Clarita Valley to improve the well-being of its citizens and to leave a positive impact on the community.

Marketing
Using the resources of the Board of Directors, a diverse staff, and the skills of our volunteers, we will market the qualities and benefits of our team through digital and physical media along with the social networking of our members and our Chamber of Commerce.

Education
Providing a quality environment is founded in education. Each of our coaching staff members are always learning the newest techniques and skills to teach our members. While the whole staff is educated on providing a safe and secure environment for all of our members.

Safe Environment

Diversity and experience in multiple industries from our membership with the support of our sponsors and partners. We have talent and members with the necessary tools to accomplish all of our goals.

We have increased membership retention and the education and enrichment of our swimmers while providing an ever increasing safe environment for them to develop in. Moving forward we are going to increase our membership while creating and providing more enrichment programs.
