Club Philosophy

The Glenmore Seals Swim Club is a fun, recreational, semi-competitive swim club for swimmers 7 – 18 years old (must be 7 by Sept 1). The goal of the Club is to improve each swimmer’s dive, stroke, turn ability, endurance and confidence through coaching and training. The priority of the Club is the development of a swimmer’s self-confidence, self-awareness and skill level. Success is measured by improved strokes,┬ádives and turns not by a first-place finish at all costs. Time trials and swim meets are used to assess swimmer’s improvement and personal bests. Children will learn in a safe and positive atmosphere.
