Welcome to Pacific Swim Team! We are a family owned business founded in 1990 by Di Molenaar. Di was born in South Africa and immigrated to United States in 1985. Di’s passion for swimming began when she was 5 years old and grew into a competitive swimmer who continues to swim until this day. Di started a small business out of her home pool in South Africa where she taught her own children along with many neighborhood children to swim for 13 years prior to starting Pacific Swim. During this time Di saw the tremendous impact teaching had on children’s lives. After arriving in the States Di coached for the United Poway Swim Team for 2 years before deciding to start a team of her own.Pacific Swim started with about 8 swimmers and a handful of beginners in lessons. Di’s children Jane and Owen also began teaching lessons and helping build the program. Owen currently heads the age group swimmers and runs the program at 4S Ranch. Di’s daughter Jane recently left her job in the corporate world to come on board and manage operations of the team. Di is currently enjoying retirement but continues to swim at Rancho Arbolitos and oversee the program.
Pacific Swim offers year- round lessons and training for swimmers of all ages and ability levels. Swimmers learn all aspects of swimming, whether for safety, fun, fitness or competition. The program is divided into 6 levels: Learn to Swim, Beginner Novice, Advanced Novice, Competitive, Pre-Senior and Senior. It is the goal of Pacific Swim to offer age specific training for all of our athletes geared towards challenging each individual and developing each individual to the best of their abilities.
We look forward to having you join our team.
