Swim and Dive

The Mira Costa Swim + Dive team is a Spring sport and one of the largest sports on campus with 160+ athletes. Led by Head Coach Ali Isham and her amazing coach staff, swim is consistently competing for the Bay League Title every season. In addition. Swim and Dive will place numerous athletes in CIF competition. Coach Ali was Daily Breeze’s 2017 Girls Swim Coach of the Year.

Tryouts are usually held sometime late January with practices starting mid-February. Season starts beginning of March and culminates with CIF and State Championships in mid-May. The team is currently a no-cut sport and is comprised of Varsity, Junior Varsity and Frosh/Soph Groups.   The Varsity and Junior Varsity are Competitive groups while the Frosh/Soph is a development group striving to be competitive. There is a spot for everyone on the team who will be dedicated and committed to be the best they can be.

Although a competitive sport, not all swimmers will compete every week because of the size of the team. All swimmers are encouraged to train hard and work on stroke technique so they can earn spots to compete. Swimming is both an individual and team sport. The swimmers compete and are scored as a team, but within this framework, swimmers focus on achieving their own personal goals as developed by their coaches.

Dive – If you are a diver or have the desire to compete, please contact coach. Diving practices and competition are help off-campus and she can provide more information.
