Who We Are

The Swim Strong Foundation is a not for profit organization dedicated to inspire youth to achieve their potential through swimming.

Our Mission:
  1. Create and support community based swim programs that guide children towards healthy lifestyles through exercise and competition.
  2. Provide financial assistance to talented but disadvantaged children to be able to participate in USA Swimming programs
  3. Supply expertise and support to organizations seeking to promote children’s competitive swimming.
Our History:
The Swim Strong Foundation began in 2006, however it has its roots in the 40 year old St. Sebastian swim program. We have decided to put community based competitive swimming on a stronger footing by setting up the Swim Strong Foundation. The intent is to ensure that this program and others like it will continue to provide inspiration and motivation to future generations of swimmers. It is the brain child of Shawn Slevin, head coach of the St. Sebastian Swim Team and a dedicated group of parents and alumni who serve as the Foundation’s executive board.
