About the Bluefins
The Newark Bluefins Swim Team is dedicated to continuous improvement promoting personal growth by dedication to our swimmers and families. Our efforts involve ensuring dignity with an emphasis on professionalism and integrity.
Our mission is to reliably, collaboratively, professionally and continuously improve personal excellence and team performance without losing sight of our original goal to provide a positive, warm, fun, and nurturing environment for all our swimmers and their families.
We build trust and teamwork in our swimmers by efficiently disseminating and maximizing instruction as well as to collaboratively pursue distinctive goals while continuing to progressively streamline life-lesson alignments promoting personal growth.
While team success is a primary focus, the Bluefins Swim Team strives for personal growth in each of our swimmers. Through integrity, dedication, and discipline, we strive to help build strong, confident, and positive athletes in a family-oriented positive environment.
In 1997 Tom Crocker, boys head coach of the Newark Memorial high school swim team, with the assistance of coach Rosey Loaisiga, and a small group of parents set out to fill a void in the community of Newark, CA. Through their hard work and determination the Newark Bluefins was the eleventh team added to the East Bay Swim League in the Spring of 1997.
The first years were building years, and our first win did not come for a couple of years, but a lot of excitement surrounded each swim meet. The team's success has been steadily improving each year culminating with a fourth place finish in the 2007 EBSL Championships.
The future looks bright for the Bluefins and our program has become one of the consistent performers within the EBSL.
