Interested in joining the Springfield Community Pool Swim Team? We are excited to begin a great summer season in 2022! A special welcome to all our new team members and we look forward to seeing our returning swimmers!
The Springfield Community Pool Swim Team season consists of 8 dual meets, plus a Championship Meet. The mission of the Coaching Staff is to help each swimmer maximize their ability through swimmer-specific training and competition. The coaches seek to work with children and parents to create a positive environment where personal excellence, honesty, and commitment are fostered and expected. Together we seek to instill a lifelong love of swimming and achieve our highest potential in swimming and life. Many of the swimmers who start out on the go on to compete at the YMCA, high school, and college levels.
Every new swimmer is welcome on our team, regardless of ability or prior experience. Our coaches will make the final decision regarding specific team placement based on your child’s swimming ability and with your child’s best interest in mind. Those who do not make the team will be asked to join our swim lessons and clinics program, designed to develop swimming skills in a non-competitive environment.
