Their Code of Regulations, created by their founders, limits them to 900 households in a facility designed for 1100 so that they can avoid overcrowding. From the beginning, Northwest Swim Club has been a place for families; after all, it is owned and managed entirely by its members.
Activities were developed by the members and designed around their concerns. Many of these activities have become so famous that they are part of the folklore of the Club. The competitive swimming and diving teams have been an exemplar for the area. Going through experiences of large and small teams, they have experienced all levels of success including a two-year drought of dual meet wins and 16 years of consecutive championships.
