Goals for our swimmers
Our staff concentrates on four things: (1) Building character and self-confidence; (2) Developing physical fitness through swimming; (3) Teaching swimming strokes, (4) Developing a sense of team. We do not push winning as individuals or as a team. We encourage our kids to beat their own times- swim faster than the last time.
Currently, the City of Branson has 16 parks serving residents and visitors. These parks offer a wide variety of opportunities from swimming to nature trails.
