Loomis swimmers and divers compete at the top of the New England prep school meets. We consistently rank within the top echelons of the New England Prep School Swimming Association, having accumulated 17 championships.
We believe in developing the talents of our swimmers and divers into championship competitors through rigorous pool workouts, focusing on stroke- or dive-specific training. Our fundamental outlook on swimming technique is based on the principles of the “Total Immersion” program as swimmers log 5,500 meters per day during their two-hour sessions. The divers focus on hurdle technique and entry refinements. Weight room and/or plyometric exercises are incorporated twice a week. We aim to see swimmers and divers evolve and improve as their careers unfold. We believe in the notion of a whole that exceeds the sum of its parts, and have earned a reputation as one of the most enthusiastic, supportive squads in the league.
