Welcome to Blackline Aquatics

About Blackline

Our team is a member of USA Swimming and Minnesota Swimming, Inc (MSI).  The club has been coaching swimmers in the South Metro Twin Cities for over 30 years.  The team is designed as a stepping stone process, providing for swimmers of all ages and abilities. In our younger groups, stroke technique and fostering a love of the sport are the primary focus. As swimmers progress through the program, physical conditioning is added to their daily routine. Our goal is to provide for all members of the community who have a desire to swim. The coaching staff of Blackline Aquatics is one of the finest and most experienced in the country. The full time coaches all have experience coaching at many different levels including Olympic, collegiate, club, and high school level.

Program Philosophy

Blackline Aquatics program is based on a distance IM philosophy. This means the team believes in building a solid endurance base, with an emphasis in all four strokes. The coaches strive to make all swimmers’ stroke technique as correct and efficient as possible. Our overall goal is to make each swimmer reach their full potential at a time when they are physically mature. Blackline is committed to develop a love for swimming in its young swimmers for a lifelong benefit from the sport. Swimming not only builds all around fit athletes, but it also helps build character. Swimming teaches commitment, organizational skills, work ethic, sportsmanship, patience, and discipline to name a few examples. Therefore, we believe swimming is the greatest sport of all.
