South Bend Swim Club

The South Bend Swim Club, a collaboration with the Venues Parks & Arts Department, invites you to become a member of the team.

The South Bend Swim Club is open to anyone age 7 + who meets the minimum swimming requirements. The philosophy for all swimmers is to teach first, train second. First and foremost we will provide a safe, protective and nurturing environment for every child we come into contact with.  Secondly, we want to make swimming affordable to everyone. Our primary purpose is to provide the youth of the greater South Bend area a safe, inexpensive, highly structured, competitive swimming program.  Our goal is to have every athlete that walks through our door realize their full potential as a swimmer and more importantly as a person.  We hope to use the sport of swimming as springboard for all that life has to offer.

If you would like more information about our club or would like to come and visit us at a practice feel free to stop by or to call Coach VanDriessche at 574-276-6057 or contact him at
