Varsity Swim & Dive

Team Overview

Tampa Prep Swim Dive (TPSD) team is one of the largest sports teams at the school, and one of the few on which boys and girls compete together. The team includes athletes who compete at the national level, and those just interested in trying a new sport. All are made to feel welcome, and equally a part of the team.

The team has a storied history of producing some of the finest athletes at Prep and some of the best swimmers and divers in the state of Florida. Team members have gone on to compete at NCAA colleges and universities, and internationally at the Olympic Games. One is now the Head Diving Coach at the University of Georgia.
