North Coast is committed to the long term development of their swimmers and places the highest value on teamwork, citizenship, academics and character building. The NCA teaching methodology is age based until the swimmers reach their freshman year of high school (10U, 11-12, 13-14). We believe in a model that values friendship and places the onus on the coach. Our groups 14 and under are commitment based and show that if you are attending our workouts you will get better! Once a swimmer reaches high school their progression changes based on commitment and performance standards that align with their physical and mental development at these stages.
