Who are the Swordfish?

Sabino Vista Hills Swim Team is a summer swim team in Northeast Tucson, AZ. We have been coaching youth to swim confidently and with blazing speed for nearly 43 years.

A member of the Southern Arizona Aquatics Association (SAAA), SVH practices weekdays from April until early July (practices are held in the evenings until school is out, then in the mornings), participates in two competitive swim meets per week (Tuesday and Thursday evening) throughout mid-May and June, SAAA Invitationals, and then ends the season with an all-league championship meet in early July.

Our swimmers range in age from four to 18 years old, and are broken down by age group: (6 and Under, 8 and Under, 9-10, 11-12, 13-14, and 15-18).  Swimming is a great way to introduce kids to competitive sport, which encourages dedication, self-reliance, doing something the right way (instead of the easy way), good sportsmanship, increases self confidence, respect towards themselves and others, and most importantly provides a fun way to be active in the summer and socialize with old and new friends.  Coach Chris' approach to swimming emphasizes good stroke/form first, strength second.

Swimmers do not need to be proficient in competitive strokes, but must be able to complete a basic swim assessment.  Contact us for more details!
