Competitive Excellence/ Personal Development

Opportunities are provided for each swimmer to compete at levels which are appropriate to his/her competence. The Poseidon coaching staff endeavors to teach, train and motivate young people to achieve their ultimate potential in competitive swimming in the belief that this experience will prove valuable to them as they grow and develop. The staff also strives to nurture high standards in personal development by instilling such concepts as time management, personal accountability, high self-esteem, constructive self-motivation, goal setting and goal achievement as these ideas relate to their success in training and in competition. It is our belief that the process of achieving is as significant as realizing the achievement itself.

At each level of the Poseidon program, swimmers are taught to strive for excellence. Excellence represents the achievement of that level at which each individual knows that they have done their utmost to become the best that they are capable of becoming.
