Swimming

Swimming is offered to our girls and boys in the Upper School. The swimmers practice at the Wichita Swim Club, which has produced Olympic athletes. Swimming is a sport students can continue for life.

Team Goals Include: 

A competitive team of athletes who display teamwork, sportsmanship, dedication, and hard work. 

To build a team on which all teammates support and encourage each other. 

Each athlete must set individual and team goals. Together, we will work toward the attainment of those goals.
