About BEST

About Us

BEST Elite Swim Team is a year-round competitive swim team offering high quality professional coaching and technique instruction with a holistic approach to swim training. Our coaches, as members of USA Swimming, have access to the most comprehensive training and certification program for coaches of any sport in the US. Kids who swim for BEST will benefit from the small team structure that emphasizes being a good teammate and a good sport, personal progress, and having fun. We want our BEST swimmers to develop a love for swimming that will last a lifetime.

BEST is a coach-owned club, but always welcomes anyone who is interested in supporting and assisting the swim program by volunteering time, ideas, resources, support, and involvement in team activities and fundraising.
