The Folsom Tigersharks offer training and competitive opportunities for swimmers of all abilities to reach their individual and team goals. Tigersharks are dedicated to providing an enjoyable environment for building sportsmanship, character, skills (technique), friendships and health. We are dependent on family participation, a well-qualified coaching staff, and a dedicated Board of Directors in our pursuit of excellence. Our swimmers will acquire life enhancing attributes such as integrity, discipline, dedication and teamwork, through the process of striving to be the best they can be.
The Folsom Tigersharks is founded on the belief of age-group competitive swimming with a recreation atmosphere and offers an exciting and worthwhile experience in a young person’s life. It can be learned and enjoyed by those with very little natural ability, as well as those who are of Olympic caliber. Its values go far beyond that of learning efficiency in the water.
It is a basic assumption that for a competitive recreation program to succeed, it must encompass and challenge all who participate and it must follow continuous developmental progression. Swimmers learn balance and the feel of movement through water, much the same as they sense movement and balance out of water. This water sense can only come through continued and constant exposure to water, with each succeeding step bringing about an increased sophistication in stroke technique.
