We emphasize individual and team growth, a thorough knowledge of swimming, the spirit of sportsmanship, a healthy lifestyle, and academic excellence.
Academic and Athletic Excellence
The Trident Swim Foundation provides superior community-based athletic and academic programs that enable student-athletes to achieve their personal goals. All programming is offered free of charge.
The Swimmer Scholar Program
The Trident Swim Foundation’s Swimmer Scholar program is designed for students to succeed long after they graduate from the program. The three core principles of the program are Discipline, Self-confidence, and Teamwork.
Discipline - Attendance at afterschool study sessions and structured swim practice is mandatory for our Swimmer Scholars. Students learn to reap the rewards and understand the necessity of hard work in and out of the pool.
Self-confidence - As Swimmer Scholars develop athletic and academic competence, they begin to understand their abilities and strengths better to redefine their limits.
Teamwork - Swimmer Scholars learn to support the goals of their teammates in the pool and the classroom by collaborating in relays during swim meets and participating in active learning forums during the study hall sessions.
The Trident Swim Foundation currently has full Swimmer Scholar Programs in two major cities:
New York George Washington Educational Campus Columbia Secondary School Prospect Heights Educational Campus
Los Angeles Morningside High School Ted K. Tajima High School
