The Year-Round Program

The Baylor Swim Club offers the finest year-round USA Swimming age group and senior swimming programs in the Greater Chattanooga area. We have created a program that caters to swimmers of all ages and abilities. In addition to ensuring proper technique and conditioning, our program’s emphasis on the development of self-esteem, sportsmanship, and teamwork prepares the swimmer for success in both sport and life.

Year-round swimmers at Baylor Swim Club are encouraged to participate in swim meets, which are held about once a month. Most competitions for young swimmers are held locally. There are no benchwarmers! Baylor coaches believe that every swimmer should get a chance to compete and strive for excellence.

And it’s fun! Lifelong friendships are developed through Baylor Swim Club practice groups, swim meets, and team building activities. Baylor’s flexible practice schedule allows swimmers to enjoy and participate in other sports, school and family activities.

Don’t wait: online registration opens August 6th (August 22nd for new swimmers). Read through the registration information in the right sidebar, then click on the link below to start your registration, so you can be sure your swimmer has this incredible opportunity!
