Team History

Success Through Fun

At the team’s functional core, we improve stroke technique, increase speed and endurance, and build individual character. These elements lead to faster, more efficient swimming. Just as importantly, they open the door to more enjoyment, fun and possibility.

In spite of its size (over 600 swimmers) and many measures of success (including our most recent four graduating seniors receiving over a quarter of a million dollars in athletic and academic scholarships), Neptune maintains a culture of big/small family fun. At practice it’s a “small team” where kids get to know each other as friends and not just teammates. At meets, the “big team” atmosphere includes great relays in each age group, kids to cheer for in each heat, and energy, excitement and friendship emanating from a large group of like-minded people.
