Chandler Recreational Swim Team Opportunities

Recreational Swimming Teams through Chandler Aquatics

     

  

 Chandler's six-week summer recreation
 swim team program is designed to develop
 the potential of children and teens who are
 interested in a swim team experience. The
 goal is to enhance the physical and mental
 fitness of all children ages 5-1/2 to 18 who
 participate in the program.

 By giving them a positive experience
 though teamwork, learning good
 sportsmanship, correct stroke technique
 and the rules of the sport, by developing
 positive attitudes and self-esteem from
 their accomplishments, it is hoped that
 they will realize their full potential through
 self discipline and hard work.
    

OBJECTIVES OF THE PROGRAM

 1. To provide basic competitive swimming
     skills. Participants should already have
     basic beginning swimming skills.
 2. To provide a SAFE, fun and positive
     atmosphere.
 3. Provide opportunities for participants to
     develop their swimming skills through
     organized training and self-discipline.
 4. Allow participants to gain self-esteem
     and confidence through personal
     accomplishments.
  
 This program was also developed to
 allow family participation. Parents are
 highly encouraged to  become involved
 through volunteering their services or
 being supportive spectators.

 We offer one morning and three evening
 programs. All teams compete in the East
 Valley Swim Conference, which includes
