News and Announcements
As a lifelong aquatic professional myself, I can whole-heartedly attest to the amazing coach that Justin is. Over the years I have taken my own children to a variety of swim programs offered around Tucson and had yet to find one that met my coaching standards AND that my kids enjoyed. Coach Justin exceeded my expectations. In just a few short weeks he took my son from swim lessons to swimming laps with the team. I have seen the inner workings of many aquatic facilities over the years. Coach Justin is everything you want in a coach. He is firm, but kind. Strict, but caring. Professional, yet personable. He is extremely knowledgeable, not just about stroke technique, but also about how to explain the strokes to very young swimmers. Other programs teach a very basic idea of strokes and leave the fine tuning up to future coaches. Not Coach Justin. He teaches the fundamentals from the very beginning and uses proper swim terminology. The levels of his team build on each other very nicely. By the time most swimmers are out of the 8 and under age group, they have solid knowledge of all four strokes. So lucky to have found this program.
The Winter practice schedule for the Aquabear Swim Club is now posted both below and on the TEAM CALENDAR. Although no meets have been scheduled yet due to the COVID-19 limitations on group gatherings we do anticipate scheduling a few meets during the Spring in order to allow our swimmers to track improvement and have some fun racing.
We are also excited to announce that we just purchased and installed a brand new heater so ensure that our swimmers are nice and warm through the winter months! The new heater along with our new covers purchase this summer should make fora comfortable (and cheaper) winter! Yup Yup!!

It has been a life changing experience having our boys on this swim team. Coach Justin is far and away the most skilled coach there is in Arizona. He is kind, understanding of children and their variety of needs, and a fantastic communicator. Not only is he developing strong athletes, he builds confidence and character. He also has the ability to train his coaches and they too are among the greatest. Any coach you get at Aquabear Swim Club is going to give you a great experience. Highly Recommend!
This is silly but just wanted to let you know we appreciate you and your patience with Bennett. We were at the pool yesterday and a 2 year old drown and it took several minutes to revive him. Just kept thinking about our kids and how thankful we are for ISR.
Coach! You helped turn our kid into a fish! We just want you to know how much we appreciate you coaching Tyce last summer.. We got off to a slow start this summer, but we stayed true to the techniques we all learned from you. He now LOVES the water!! Another life you saved!
