2015 silverWelcome to St. Petersburg Aquatics, a  USA Swimming Silver Medal National Excellence Club.

SPA uses a “progressive” age group program designed to develop  the child physically, mentally, and emotionally in a systematic fashion.  A well-defined long-term approach of  gradually increasing degrees of commitment is essential to reach peak performance  levels during a swimmer’s physiological prime.  The emphasis in the early stages of participation must be  placed on developing technical skills and love for the sport. In later years, a  more demanding physical and psychological challenge must be introduced to the  training program.  In this respect  “too much too soon” is more often the cause of failure to achieve maximum potential  in senior swimming than in the reverse situation.

The SPA Program
The SPA Program is known throughout the county for a first-class, year-round swim program. We offer a guided age group youth program for children 5 and up, from beginning swimmer to the most competitive and skilled swimmer. When a young person becomes a member of St. Petersburg Aquatics (SPA) they learn the values of sportsmanship and teamwork. Swimming, through SPA, provides physical, emotional, and intellectual skills that will last a life time.
