Girls Swimming and Diving

Culver Academies Varsity Swimming and Diving program has a long and storied history. The program began in 1917 with the completion of the construction of an indoor swimming facility for the members of the Corps of Cadets. During the early years the CMA teams competed with other private schools in the region since the public school system did not offer the sport. In the early 1950’s public high schools started to compete in swimming and CMA teams began to compete as an Associate member of the public high school association. In the early 1970’s the pool was remodeled to meet national and state standards (25 yard eight lane pool with a separate diving well) while retaining all of its original design and tile work. The first meets were held in the modified pool in 1974. Upon the founding of Culver Girls Academy in 1971, the first CGA team began competition in the redesigned pool during the 1974 season. Also, during the 1974 season Culver Academies became a full member of the IHSAA (Indiana High School Athletic Association) and thus eligible for the Championship season in the sport. Today both the CMA and CGA teams train together and compete during the winter season within the IHSAA.

The Program Philosophy is a simple one – the athletes compete for each other. Since the inception of the program, the team has had only five head coaches and three one year interim coaches. Throughout the history the program all five long serving Head Coaches have sought to establish a sense of family from which the athletes can learn leadership, the importance of hard work, discipline, the value of sacrifice for others and sportsmanship. These values supersede the number of meets won or lost, the number of State Finalists, records set or 1st Team All Americans. There are no cuts in the early season to bring the team down to size but the young athletes must earn the right to represent their teammates in competition. The program is one where experienced athletes can grow and novice athletes can be a part of something more important than themselves. The end result is an athlete prepared academically for college, competition in the NCAA (should they choose) and most importantly – life.
