Flying Carp Swimming
Flying Carp swimmers swim at skill levels from beginning and fitness swimmers to highly competitive swimmers, from late bloomers to former age group and collegiate swimmers, and in ages from their early twenties and up. Swimmers should be able to swim freestyle unaided for the length of the pool, although arrangements can be made for those persons who desire to learn to swim correctly and safely. The Flying Carp symbolizes courage and ambition. The carp is a traditional Asian symbol of strength, endurance and tenacity. The image is also of a real carp fighting its way upstream to spawn, representing energy and health. The original Chinese story is that if a carp successfully swam up the Yellow River and climbed the waterfall to the source of the river, it became a dragon. Thus our motto: Farther and Faster
