The Swim Strong Foundation is a
not for profit organization dedicated to inspire youth to achieve
their potential through swimming.
- Create and support community based swim programs that guide
children towards healthy lifestyles through exercise and competition.
- Provide financial assistance to talented but disadvantaged
children to be able to participate in USA Swimming programs
- Supply expertise and support to organizations seeking to
promote children’s competitive swimming.
The Swim Strong Foundation began in 2006, however
it has its roots in the 40 year old St. Sebastian swim program.
We have decided to put community based competitive swimming on
a stronger footing by setting up the Swim Strong Foundation.
The intent is to ensure that this program and others like it
will continue to provide inspiration and motivation to future
generations of swimmers. It is the brain child of Shawn Slevin,
head coach of the St. Sebastian Swim Team and a dedicated group
of parents and alumni who serve as the Foundation’s executive
