Brighton Area Schools is initiating a district managed community based youth swim program beginning in the fall of 2017 at its newly built 12 lane aquatics center. The head coach in conjunction with the aquatics director will have the resources and opportunity to build a first class swim program from entry levels through high school. The district's goals in starting this program are to provide top quality instruction at all levels of its aquatics programming in a structure that provides symmetry between youth and school programs in a manner that delivers students with a positive and meaningful experience throughout their swimming careers.
The district has an average enrollment of 6,000 + students, k-12, and is a district that is committed to excellence in all programs that it offers students and the community. The district is located between the metropolitan areas of Detroit and Lansing. Twenty five minutes to the south lies the city of Ann Arbor. Due to its location and the convenience of two major highways, Brighton has become a bedroom community of all these major metropolitan areas. The county is the fastest growing county per capita and economically in the state of Michigan. Brighton is truly a great place to live and work.
