Through a Christ-centered approach, Full Armour Swim Team is committed to allowing youth in our community to experience growth and development through the sport of swimming and to strive for personal excellence and improvement. We compete as individuals coming together to form one team entrenched with a sense of teamwork, camaraderie and support for one another.
What Makes Us Different?
Full Armour Swim Team is not your ordinary swim team. We are focused on developing youth in a loving environment. While we strive to be the best swim team that we can, and we are confident that we have some of the most knowledgable coaches implementing the latest in sports physiology and psychology research, we also know that there is much more to be gained by competing on a swim team than just medals and best times.
Times and Achievements will fade... but the bonds our kids make with each other and the memories will last a lifetime. In addition, swimmers learn valuable life skills and teamwork!
Our job as coaches is simple it is to love our athletes and provide them with the best coaching. If we do that, with God's help, we will achieve what we have set out to achieve... Personal and Team Excellence!
Why Are We Raising Money?
Full Armour Swim Team is dedicated to making sure that every child has the ability to participate in sport regardless of financial need. Over the last three years, we have had the honor and privilege of working with several kids in foster care and from underprivileged homes. In 2017, Full Armour Swim Team provided youth in our community with $8,000 in scholarships. In 2018, that number surged to $12,000 and in 2019 we are estimating approximately $18,000 will be provided. These scholarships are provided by not only the team but the generosity of sponsors and local families.
In addition to these much-needed scholarships, monies raised also helps us keep costs low for our athletes during our retreats and meets by subsidizing costs and allowing as many athletes as possible to get the Full Armour Experience.
We hope that you will join us in our mission to never turn away a child because of financial need.
