St. JUDE SWIM TEAM

The philosophy of the Cougar Swim Team is that each athlete perform at his/her “personal best”, while working as a team throughout the season. Each swimmer is encouraged to track his/her progress in practices and meets and strive to meet their timed goals. Through this sport, it is our hope that life skills are enhanced in our students such as hard work, goal setting, commitment, and time management. A final-added benefit is that this sport is one for life, which many can turn to for physical fitness in years to come.

Students in 5th-8th grade interested in joining the Cougar Swim Team will register through the St. Jude Athletic Association, as well as through one of the two year-round swimming programs in Baton Rouge, either Crawfish Aquatics or Tiger Aquatics. Both programs offer on-deck coaching, who have been certified by USS Swimming and focus on swim stroke technique and skill development.
