Mission Statement

To promote fitness and health in adults by offering and supporting Palmetto Masters swimming.

Vision Statement

* Provide consistent superior services to our members

* Provide certification, leadership tools, and continuing education to our coaches so as to enrich their coaching skills and success with Palmetto Masters Swimming

* Actively seek to enrich as many lives as possible through our programs, recruitment, and member retention

What is the Palmetto Master’s Mentoring Program?

Plan A- Our goal is to identify those seniors leaving programs to swim in college.  You will be paired up with someone who has attended the same school or maybe works in your same career choice.  Having someone who has been where you are or who has contacts to where you want to be can certainly make the journey smoother. 

Plan B- Maybe you are not leaving the area for school but also not ready to quit swimming completely.  Palmetto Masters can become a familiar place for you at a point in your life when everything you have ever known is about to change.  Swimming has been such a structured part of your lives over the years.  Sudden elimination of this can feel liberating at first, but once you are settled into your new routine, swimming can be a comfortable place to return. 

For more information on becoming part of our program, please email us at palmettomasterssc@gmail.com.  You can also visit our website at www.palmettomasters.org for more information on our team and practice times.

Once you register for the Palmetto Masters Mentoring Program, you will have access to us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat.   You will also be added to our monthly electronic newsletter!

We hope to hear from you!!
