Cassidy Wong Breaks San Diego Record

A great swimmer is one who can move through the water in an efficient and almost effortless manner. Our swim school takes each student from one step to the next without skipping crucial skills or giving children a false sense of security in the water. To achieve the strength, endurance, and flawless technique of a true athlete, one must begin with a solid, foundational program that emphasizes buoyancy, breath control, and proper stroke development, coupled with basic water safety skills. We begin teaching boys and girls as young as three months old, and watch as they grow and improve their strength and fundamentals. Waterworks Aquatics is proud of eight year old Cassidy Wong who began swimming at our Carlsbad location, and recently set a new record in butterfly and Individual Medley.

Cassidy Wong swam at Waterworks Aquatics in Carlsbad until she gained the confidence to begin competing in the Junior Olympics. On July 24, 2014, the Waterworks Aquatics champion swam in the Junior Olympics Long Course Championships in San Diego. She was able to set a new record in the 50m Fly at 36.71 seconds, and a new record in the 200m Individual Medley at 3 minutes, 2.83 seconds. Just two years ago Cassidy competed in a swim competition at Waterworks Aquatics, Carlsbad where she finished in first place in all seven of her races. The eight year old is still taking lessons here at Waterworks Aquatics alongside her brother, as well as practicing with Diamond Swim Team Coach Lindsay. Together they continue to improve their strength, endurance, and flawless technique. The Diamond Swim Team will focus on the four competitive strokes: butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke, and freestyle, dives, turns, speed, endurance, and conditioning. Cassidy is already a huge inspiration and we congratulate her and wish her the best of luck in her future swimming endeavors.
