Welcome to the Badger Senior Team!


The Badger Senior Team is a nationally recognized, performance based swim team. Led by one of America’s most successful coaches, John Collins, the Badger swim team competes at the highest local, collegiate, national and international levels.

The goal of this team is to further the transition of competitive swimmers ages 13 and up into national caliber athletes. To become a member of this elite team, swimmers must possess sufficient physical and mental strength and show promise and dedication to the sport of swimming. Swimmers need to embody the qualities of commitment, perseverance, and participate in daily training. Swimmers must have the ability to take ownership of their own swimming.


The Senior Team is led by Head Coach John Collins & Coach Dominick Galimi.


For the 2022-2023 year, the Senior team will swim at two primary locations during the Fall, winter and spring. These locations are Lehman College and SUNY Purchase. During summer, swimmers will swim at the Badger pool. Swimmers will be assigned a schedule based on goals and ability. Your coaches will place you accordingly and you should speak with John if you have any questions or concerns about locations and placement.
