We are a club based in the San Jose area of Northern California. We are an inclusive youth team developed in 2016 to primarily serve our population with disabilities and underrepresented athletes in this sport. We train ages 6yrs and older at novice and intermediate levels.
We are a small team with a maximum of 10 swimmers. At this time, we have 7 swimmers and will have a few openings for the 2022-2023 season.
Our competition swimmers have all earned gold, silver and bronze medals and have placed well amongst the 13 Northern California clubs which offer novice/intermediate teams. Our athletes w/disabilities (AWD) have the option to compete in the parasports AWD category at all competitions.
We are the only team to travel nationally and internationally with our Novice and Intermediate swimmers to competitions and exhibitions for the AWD parasports category. We are also a recognized training club under our Organization, Artistic Swim AWD on the USA Paralympic (Team USA) website for National/International competitions and future Paralympic Games.
Not only do we have a solid commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion for the under represented athletes, we are collectively the diverse voices for our team and the representation of those globally in our sport. We are dedicated to long term athlete development and we have a staff of passionate coaches who are a growing part of our volunteer staff. We are a volunteer based team and all our resources are devoted to the development of our athletes and their success in this sport. We invest in our athletes equitably and we leave NO swimmer untrained or on the 'sidelines'.
We hope you consider joining us because we are your sports family who will nurture your swimmer into a lifetime of fun, creativity and appreciation for life.
