Realizing the uniqueness of each child, our goal is to educate and nurture every child at every age through the LHPS swim program. We aim to develop each individual as far as their dreams, talents, and efforts will take them.
Our coaching develops self-confidence, character, and skills in our swimmers. We also encourage parents to actively support their child and the program. Through this caring and considerate environment, we provide our community with individuals who are becoming the best they can be as students, citizens, and athletes.
Through committed, purposeful practice, each student-athlete sets goals and works hard to achieve those goals.
We capture our philosophy in the words COURAGE and PERSEVERANCE:
COURAGE is the willingness to accept risk and endure failures. Courage exists when there is a situation that presents the opportunity for success. We encourage our athletes to embrace these opportunities and not to fear the outcome.
PERSEVERANCE is the backbone of success in life. One cannot succeed at the highest levels without enduring some setbacks. Without perseverance, difficult times can create a lack of faith, low self-esteem, and decreased enthusiasm. Perseverance is the quality that transcends these difficult challenges, allowing the individual to find the true strength of their character.
The Highlander Coaching staff believes that developing COURAGE and PERSEVERANCE through swimming, individuals are prepared for the challenges they will face in life.
