Program Philosophy

De Smet Jesuit High School Swimming is committed to developing successful young men in and out of the pool. The coaching staff is committed to guiding each athlete to reach his fullest potential. We believe each member of the team plays a crucial role toward developing a strong cohesive unit. The program stresses the importance of goal setting, as each individual creates a set of goals. Since Swimming s a unique blend of an individual and team sport, each swimmer's pursuit toward achieving his goal ultimately leads to the fulfillment of the team’s goal. As a Jesuit institution, we believe in the education of the “whole person” and swimming is a tremendous mental and physical challenge.
