About St. Andrews Swim Club:
When Taylor Cooper took over the head coaching position of St Andrews University in the spring of 2016, he also wanted to bring a more developed program to the community. With over 30 years of USA Swimming experience Taylor has a vast knowledge of the workings of an age group club. He has sought out some of the best swimmers and instructors at St Andrews and is creating a program that has strong relations with the school.
Our coaches have not only knowledge of the sport, but most are still competing as well which allows for a unique understanding of what swimmers go through.
We are a coach owned program which provides the highest level of instruction for the unique sport of swimming. We pride ourselves to be able to bring the highest quality of instruction in the area!
