Swimming & Diving - Girls
The Robbinsdale-Cooper High School swimming & diving program is an extension of the school day. It is an athletic class where a student cannot only learn the skills and strategies of swimming & diving, but also teamwork, sportsmanship, respect, loyalty, goal-setting, and discipline.
Cooper swim team values:
- Honoring commitments
- Strong work ethic
- The desire for improvement
Benefits and goals should be learning how to get along with other people, developing mentally and physically, establishing lifelong physical conditioning habits, and learning the technique unique to the sport to compete in it successfully. The objective is to have a "winning team" - a team that trains together to become the best that they can be. Therefore any student participating can learn to accept not always being on top as a realistic part of learning and living.
As a former swimmer on the Cooper swim team, I now coach to be able to share my passion for swimming and hopefully to impact an individual the way swimming impacted me. Whether that's creating lifelong friendships, developing new skills, or constantly learning life lessons and how to persevere.
