Water Sharks Swim Team

The Washington Water Sharks seek to encourage and motivate each swimmer to develop his or her individual skills and to enhance self-esteem. Everyone involved in the coordination of the swim team: the administration, aquatics personnel, swim team parent group and coaches, pledge to make this an experience that will positively shape your child.

Our job, as coaches, is to help encourage your swimmer throughout the season to enhance self-esteem and build confidence. We focus on technique, endurance and stamina for all swimmers. Helping them to better their strokes and become faster and stronger.
