Philosophy


Swordfish Philosophy

The Calgary Swordfish Swim Club is one of the largest competitive Summer Swim Teams’ in Alberta.

As a competitive swim club, our goal is to provide every member an opportunity to improve swimming skills and achieve success at his/her ability. When a young person becomes a member of the Swordfish, the swimmer learns the values of work ethic, commitment, setting and achieving goals, sportsmanship and team work, while gaining lifelong skills. Swordfish swimmers strive to attain their competitive goals through training and competition. Our season runs from May-August, with our competitive focus being on our Regional & Provincial swim meets. Most of all we want our swimmers to have fun in the pool and make new friends while learning to swim and compete.

The Calgary Swordfish have a very strong and positive history in our community, almost 20 years as a matter of fact! Much of that is due to the efforts put forward by all of our swim families and coaches. The Swordfish have a long-standing tradition of volunteerism. We know that volunteering is an integral part of any youth sport organization. The opportunities for you to volunteer will contribute to the success of all swimmers and the club.

We hope you become part of our team and help us to promote swimming skills, life skills, and an enthusiasm for competitive swimming. You will have the opportunity to nurture new friendships and develop a unique atmosphere that you’ll be proud to belong to…just as we are. Swim smarter, faster and believe in your coaches and club…make it yours’. We truly encourage everyone to enjoy the legacy of the Calgary Swordfish Swim Club and hope that you will join us in creating and shaping our upcoming successes by being an active supporter and contributor in everything we do.

Swordfish Vision: “Swimming for life long fitness, fun, and fierce competition”
