Hank Wise, Head Coach

Rocket Fish Swim Team provides high-quality swim team instruction that focuses on stroke development, speed, and endurance, develops sportsmanship and the team concept, and stresses the importance of academic achievement, social skills, and self-awareness. It is coached by Hank Wise and Jeff Nesmith.

The Rocket Fish Swim Team is the developmental swim program for Beach Swim Club at Long Beach's Belmont Plaza indoor and outdoor pool. The team begins the first week of April and summer programs begin the first Monday after schools get out for summer.

It provides excellent aquatic experiences and fun special events for the whole family. In the pool, in the ocean, and at the bay, Swim Focus provides a positive environment in which to learn, exercise, and play. Our directors and coaches come from a rich background of aquatics and academics, serving as examples of a balanced approach to high achievement in school and sports while having fun.

Our mission is to offer safe-fun, team-oriented, youth aquatic programs focusing on personal development with an emphasis on the specific and technical aspects of a variety of aquatic sports in an ego-enhancing, positive learning environment. Swim Focus promotes excellent aquatic experiences providing families with totally epic summers and so much more.

It's more than a swim team — it's a lifestyle.
