Mission

 

Our Mission:  Develop S.M.A.R.T. Swimmers


    1.  SMART provides instruction and training for Age-Group swimmers (children and adults - young and old) through both a full & part-time program of practice and periodic competitions.

    2.  SMART develops swimmer’s competitive abilities by teaching proper/effective techniques for racing including age and ability appropriate strategies.

    3.  SMART supervises swimmers through practice and competition with the objective of enabling each swimmer achieve their swimming goals.

  1. Please download this flyer (SMART 2016 flyer) for the forecast of 2016 Fall season. We offer a multiple choice style registration to enable those who want to swim only twice each week and to allow flexibility in choosing the days each week. We offer 5-6 practices each week to swimmers who want swimming to be their primary competitive focus.


  1.   All practices are at the Clayton County Aquatic Center (Steve Lundquist Aquatic Center) in Jonesboro.


  1. We host intrasquad competition twice each season - usually at mid and end of season.


  1.   For adults, we are aligned with a US Masters Swimming registered practice group (Southside Seals). SMART adult swimmers can still practice with the group or on your own; you can join with the Seals or another USMS group; you can swim “unattached” as well.


• A balance of technique work and conditioning, this program aims to teach swimmers skills they can use to swim efficiently and race effectively. No matter what level they are at to begin, we teach, drill, fine tune and train with progressively more difficult training sets using strokes they swim properly. We try very hard to serve as a “finishing school” where each swimmer’s strokes are fine tuned to be most effective for their racing and less likely to lead to injury. It is not a “learn to swim” program. For those needing to become comfortable in the water and learn foundation swimming skills, please follow this link to:


Swimmerman Swim School


  1.   Our program allows swimmers to participate in any or all seasons throughout the year. We expect most summer league swimmers will return to their community teams in the summer but we do offer evening training and practice to swimmers who do not belong to one of the Southern Crescent Swim League Community teams, or who cannot attend their community practices for any reason - with community team approval, you can train with SMART and still compete with your community team.
