Northridge Area Swimming Association is designed to provide children and young adults in the Middlebury Community School district with learning experiences through competitive swimming. These experiences will allow them to learn and develop physically, mentally, socially, and emotionally as an individual in a team-oriented environment
By joining USA Swimming through our local club, your child will become a member of one of the country’s largest and most organized youth sports.
The sport of swimming has many benefits, including the people you and your child will meet. The camaraderie among swimmers is unique; many swimming buddies become lifelong friends. In addition to being around fine people, swimming provides one of the most beneficial forms of exercise for cardiovascular and overall fitness. This exercise can be enjoyed throughout one’s entire life.
Possibly the greatest benefits of participating in an organized swimming program are the life skills your child will develop. These skills include time management, self-discipline, sportsmanship and goal-setting. Your child will reap the benefits of swimming long after their participation ends. Most swimmers go on to be very successful and productive adults largely due to what they gained from swimming.
