Swimming and Diving

I would like to welcome you to the Saint Xavier High School Swimming and Diving Program. Our program, the most storied in the state, has captured fifty-three Kentucky High School Athletic Association team championships in its illustrious history, the most by any high school program in the nation. In addition, the current streak of 29 consecutive also ranks among the nation’s best. This proud tradition is everyone’s responsibility and a unique opportunity for any young student looking to be a part of something special during his high school experience.

Our program is not only about winning championships, but more importantly focuses on the “big picture.” Our Swimming and Diving program is about goal setting and personal development. If you have any questions regarding our program, please feel free to contact me by email or office phone. Go Tigers!
