The Mission of Spare Time Aquatics is:

To provide an athlete-centric swimming program located throughout the Sacramento region with a professional coaching staff that provides fun for all ages.


Spare Time Aquatics Team Philosophy:

The team philosophy is encompassed in the words DEDICATION, PREPARATION and DETERMINATION.

DEDICATION, PREPARATION and DETERMINATION is the motivation that the coaching staff, swimmers and parents embrace to find success. Swimmers are treated as individuals and develop their own goals in their pursuit of excellence. This includes setting practice and meet goals. The parents have developed a support system for all of the swimmers so that each swimmer and family can benefit from the team.

The coaching staff believes that practice is more than swimming laps. Each practice is designed to teach the swimmers more about their mind, body, stroke and speed. Swimmers are encouraged to help each other to improve themselves and develop self-esteem, good sportsmanship and team unity during swimming practice and at meets. Each coach is open to communication with swimmers and parents so that each person understands the goals and direction of the swimmer and team.

Spare Time Aquatics believes that DEDICATION, PREPARATION and DETERMINATION in swimming will help prepare the individual for the challenges they will face in life.
