PhilosophyWe’re teaching experienced players the skills they need to play at higher levels. We understand there is more to life than just our sport, but do expect a pretty substantial commitment. Playing time must be earned at this level.
Team BioThe Fort Bragg Fighting Fish swim team formed in 2010 in order to provide the Fort Bragg community of soldier and DoD families with a comprehensive, competitive swim program. The Fighting Fish Swim Team is a USA Swimming age-group team. The team is divided into several training groups based on age, stroke proficiency, aerobic conditioning, physical, mental, and emotional maturity, and commitment to swimming. The groups are structured to provide a progressive program where swimmers are challenged at every stage with a technique-based focus for all of the groups. Competitive excellence is gradually emphasized as the swimmers get older. These groups range from developmental swimmers to experienced high school age/Senior level. The coaching staff is responsible for placing the swimmers in groups and does so based on the best interests of the swimmer, each group, and the program as a whole. Age ranges are used as a guideline; exceptions are set by the coaches based on their professional opinion. Our coaching staff takes part in weekly training to ensure that we are using the most up-to-date methods and techniques in the field. This continuing education also includes promotion and completion of the American Swim Coaches Association certification courses for all coaches. We strive to maintain and increase our knowledge in swimming as it is an ever-changing and evolving sport.
