The NCA Philosophy

North Coast Aquatics - Team Policy and Philosophy

nca value wheel

NCA is committed to the long-term development of our swimmers, and we believe that great attitude, effort, and focus delivers performance results both in the pool and in life.

Our coaches use the NCA Value Wheel regularly on deck to reinforce our expectations. The foundation of the wheel is our Mission: To Develop Student Athletes with Great Character.

When swimmers practice and apply each piece of the Value Wheel, the result is an athlete who learns life skills through competitive swimming. Nothing brings our coaches more pride than student athletes who demonstrate strong characters not only at the pool but in life.

North Coast Aquatics believes that every child has the right to a safe swimming environment that is free from abuse. NCA swimmers should be free to work hard, pursue their goals, make friends, benefit from good coaching, contribute as a great teammate and celebrate achievements without worrying about being in an abusive situation.

NCA believes, teaches and follows codes of conduct for Coaches, Athletes and Parents. NCA has additional team policies and behaviors that hold high standards and best practices for all.
