"A State of Mind"
Winning is not a sometime thing. It is an all time thing. You don't win once in a while. You don't do things
right once in a while. You do them right all the time. There is no room for second place. There's only one
place and that's first place....(Vince Lombardi)
At Treasure Coast Swimming, we believe that one must commit themselves to succeed. One must dedicate
themselves to receive the full benefits from the sport of swimming. Of course not everyone can win all of the time,
but we want all of our swimmers to train like champions. If they do this, they will be champions all of their lives
in everything they do.
