Swim Team Purpose
The purpose of Upstate Torpedoes Swim Team program is to provide young boys and girls an opportunity to participate in competitive swimming in a fun, safe, and healthy environment. We strive to help foster skillful aquatic ability, good fellowship, a finer appreciation of swimming for its own sake and not just for winning and sportsmanship of a high nature. The Upstate Torpedoes Swim Team focuses on the four core character traits of honesty, caring, respect and responsibility.
The goals for this team are to become proficient in freestyle and backstroke while building endurance and learning the mechanics of breaststroke and butterfly. However, the goals will be tailored for each individual swimmer. For those who have previously been involved in swim teams or are comfortable in all four competitive strokes, our goals include learning new drills to perfect strokes, learning the mechanics of legal starts and turns, and becoming more proficient in competitive swimming.
