Team Andrew Indie Swimming provides opportunities through private coaching and year round swim camps for excellence-oriented competitive swimmers to achieve their full potential in the sport. Swimmers are exposed to individualized programs that innovatively employ appropriate scientific principles from the bio-mechanics, psychology, and physiology of human performance. The relevant nature of this orientation leads to performance improvements.
The principles that guide Team Andrew Indie Swimming training and competitive activities focus on relevant procedures that prepare swimmers to improve and race in a satisfying manner. A consistent factor that underlies program content is the evaluation of training performances and the analysis of their relevance to intended swimming races.We are a coach owned club. Our coaching philosophy is based on the verifiable science of the kindest, most brilliant sports scientist, and friend, Dr. Brent Rushall.
